What I liked...
1. Pours Clean
A small lip at the tip of the tea spout sops up the last drop of tea that would have dripped on your tea-table. I love that there aren't any messy pours.
2. Interchangeable Rubber Handle
I like that Minos Living gives you options as to what color you would like your tea pot handle to be. Yellow favors the decoration in my home office where this beautiful tea pot is displayed. Which color do you like best?
3. Small But Mighty
Minos Tea Pot holds way more tea than it looks like it would. In my vlog (above) I said about 2.5 cups. The exact liquid measurement, however, is 17 ounces. This would be more like 2.1 cups. I guess if you don’t fill your tea cup all the way to the brim then you could feel like you’re sipping two and a half cups of tea...
4. Petite Pot
Minos Tea Pot is a perfect size for your tea tray as it won’t take up too much space. I usually have a tea snack, my tea cup, my latest read, my honey and a tea pot on my tea tray. When the tea pot isn’t so big, then I can afford to make space for all my other tea sipping luxuries.
5. Thermos Acting
Hot tea should stay hot, so a tea pot that keeps your tea warm is a keeper. Minos Tea Pot acts as a thermos and the stainless-steel conducts and retains heat. Your tea is sure to stay warm with each sip.
6. High Quality Infuser
An infuser should act as a barrier between the warm water and your tea so that the essence of the tea and not the tea leaves themselves are in your steep. A great infuser has small holes which do not allow any tea, even a rooibos, to escape. Minos Tea Pot features such an infuser!
What I did not like...
1. Ouch!! Like...Seriously...
When hot water is poured into Minos Tea Pot it conducts heat and is impossible to touch. The only place that is safe to touch is the tea handle with the rubber insert. I placed my index finger on the Tea Pot just to balance my pour and ended up with a reminder I didn’t want to remember…Be careful!
2. Sugar Bowl Dilemma
Although the Sugar Bowl has an opening where a sugar spoon or sugar prongs could sit nicely even with the lid affixed; the Sugar Bowl itself did not come with such instruments. The perfectionist in me does not know what to do! I feel like the Sugar Bowl should have come with a matching sugar utensil.
