Looks lovely but loses heat quickly
on 13 January 2013
The look of this teacup and pot is lovely - very elegant. However, I've found in use that the cup loses heat very quickly. I think it must be because of the wide rim of the cup - it's very wide and not very tall so the tea cools down so quickly that it's almost cold by about halfway. Also, I deliberately chose one without a saucer as I didn't think I'd use it, (I'm usually a mug user), but the shape of the cup requires one really - it's a bit cumbersome without it - difficult to handle because of the shape. I'm still using it but unfortunately will probably replace it with a different one now I've learned of its shortcomings.
