I'm in search of the perfect travel/commute tea set and Umi has given me a head start in my search! Umi is a teaware and tea accessory company that also provides on-the-go tea sets. I'm sharing one of them today in this product review post!
I'm not the type of tea sipping bookworm who has a cupboard full of tea pots and cups as I like to keep my tea space clutter free. So when choosing a new teaware I am really picky. Is the Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set with Canvas Bag by Umi right for me? Tap 'play' to find out!
What I liked...
I'm all into texture and the Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set gives me all the feels. Whenever I sip tea, I find myself caressing the outside of my warm tea pot and the rough texture of the Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set provides an added experience to tea time.
2. Visually Appealing
The Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set is very pleasing to the eye; a textured blue finish lends a home-made effect to the tea set.
3. Travel Size
The Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set is , well, a travel tea set. The compact nature of the tea set and the small size makes it easy to pack away, not taking up too much precious luggage space.
What I did not like...
1. For Travel Not Commute
I am truly in search of a commute tea set. I need a tea set that I can take on the go go (cue George Michael). I live in Texas where commutes are just as big as everything else; I spend a lot of time in my car and I need a tea set that can work with the cup holder in my Jeep and perhaps even a method for heating using the cigarette lighter. The Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set with Canvas Bag is a very nice travel tea set but it requires me to be stationary...I'm never stationary...
2. I'm Afraid To Break It!
I really think that I would eventually break the Coarse Pottery Travel Tea Set because the smaller tea cup doesn't slide out of the tea pot very easily and I can so see the tea pot or cup slipping out of my tea warmed hands to fall and end its life in a hotel far away from home. In my opinion, a travel or commute tea set should be fool-proof...because I'm a fool and I can sooooo see myself breaking this tea pot.
