Tazo® Teacup - Blue, 8 fl oz
Beautiful but too hot to handle
I bought the red cup bc it was a beautiful color and shape. We have quite a collection of cups and mugs from Starbucks and this seemed a little unique. Only problem being it transfers too much heat from drink to outside of cup. The cup now holds a nice succulent plant. HA!

too hot to handle
this cup looks awesome, is a decent size for a nice cup of tea, but is way too hot to handle

Cute, like the angled shape, but a bit too hot
I was drawn to these cups in the store and very much enjoy their look in my home. I picked up two and they are perfect for my coffee maker as I can make to mini coffees at once.
However if I brew it full hot they are too hot to hold, so I wish they were slightly less heat-transferring. They are also NOT microwave safe. What I do then is put the cream and sugar in first, and that tends to keep them cool enough to hold. However I'd prefer to cradle in my hands for an extra five minutes as the coffee cooled. They are a substantial feeling weight though for their size.
I find the cups easy to hold in one hand or two. I wear large size gloves, though I'd think most people would find them a comfortable size too. The conical shape means they won't slip easily, and the angled sloping top seems to act as a backdrop to the creama layer.
All in all I really like them, except for being a bit too hot for me with a higher heat brew.

Favorite. Teacup. Ever!
Like that even without a handle, the cup does not get too hot to hold.

Loved the colors. I bought blue and red. The shape is so unique.
I'm very pleased.
