Hey there Teacups! I’m still making my way through big collection of Teaware that I want to feature in this series so for today’s Let’s Talk Teaware post I’m going to be reviewing a small 150ml stoneware tumbler I bought from T2 at the end of 2017. Those of you who also follow me on Instagram will have seen this tumbler feature quite a bit over there as it’s the cup I use for all my blog tea tastings. I’m sure that buy now you all know just how much of a fan I am of T2 Teaware so I’m sure it will come as no shock to you though I’m reviewing yet another piece of theirs (this isn’t the last one either) There will definitely be a lot more T2 Teaware featured in this series throughout the months to come (I just can’t help myself)This tumbler was part of T2’s Luna Nights collection and was Available in store and online throughout all of 2017. The original price for this tumbler was £14 and while I bought I bought mine in their end of year sale and paid £6 I would say that it is absolutely worth its original price and more, I’ve used mine non stop since it got to my house and it’s been beyond helpful. Up until recently when the Rare Tea Company sent me an adorable tiny teapot with some teas to try I never used this for tea tasting sessions but when I noticed that the teapot and this tumbler hold exactly the same amount of liquid (150ml) I thought it would be silly for me not to use that to my advantage and make my tea tastings a little fairer in terms of how much of each tea that I try.
With this tumbler being stoneware it holds heat really well and doesn’t burn your hands if you put hot tea into it (I’m the clumsiest person in the world and always find a way to burn myself) and it also does a great job of keeping drinks almost ice cold which has been perfect for me in the last few weeks because its been far to hot here in the UK. Another amazing aspect of this tumbler is the hand painted artwork I love polka dots so I was drawn almost automatically to the adorable pink and blue dot’s since I bought this online I never realised until it go here that they are actually raised from the surface of the tumbler which gives it such a unique texture and really helps them to stand out a little more against the black pattern. I have to say out of all the Teaware I own I think this is honestly one of my favourites its just been so useful and has helped keep my review posts consistent. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be using this for all of my tea review posts in the future (until I get another one in a different pattern or it breaks)Overall Teaware Rating: 5/5
If you want to find out more about T2 Teaware you can do that here. Normally I would link you to where you could buy this but sadly as T2 have now stopped selling these so this time around I can’t do that. If you go here though you can find some that are incredibly similar. As always Teacups if you have any questions either stick them in the comments or send them to me on Twitter/Instagram @teaiswishblog and I’ll answer them as soon as I can.
Speak to you all soon. Happy Steeping – Kimberley
