I have a mug similar to this – same type from Teavana just a different design. The cup itself is ceramic and pretty to look at. It comes with a ceramic basket to steep your tea but the holes are somewhat large so you need to be careful when brewing finer tea. The lid looks like a gaiwan lid and helps keep your beverage warm. I’ve had this for over a year now and the artwork on the mug hasn’t faded or anything. It’s held up very well. I’ve also thrown mine in the dishwasher over that time period.

I’m a registered nurse working in the ER and currently a family nurse practitioner student. I’m also a tea enthusiast, video game nerd, foodie, fitness junkie, introvert, & nature lover. You can find me wherever there is tea and food!

I got started getting into loose leaf tea a few years back at (hate to admit it) Teavana. Since then I’ve started branching out. Black and oolong teas are my favorite and that’s what I drink the most of. I also like green tea, and white tea is okay. I like some rooibos tea blends and I’ve never had pu’erh.

My usual brewing method: 12oz mug, 1.5-2tsp loose leaf tea, fresh water heated to correct temp and steeped for correct amount of time (depends on what I am drinking). I use a Cuisinart 1.7L Perfect Temp Electric Cordless Kettle.

I want to get into the gongfu cha way of brewing.
