This cute little mug is clear so you can see through it. Gives you a chance to really enjoy your tea watching it do it's thing as it infuses with the hot/cold water. See when it's just the right strength without even having to take a sip. It comes with the metal infuser to set right inside the cup and the lid helps keep it warm while it steeps. You can also use the lid to hold the steeper while you enjoy your cup of tea. Some like to reuse the herbs a few times before tossing them so this is a perfect place to store it while you wait for another cup of tea time. Makes a great little gift for any occasion. Is it tea time yet "smile"
