I love the look and feel of this mug. The colors are really pretty, and, depending on your monitor, probably pretty close to what you see on the screen.

Vibrant colors to brighten the kitchenware . Being an avid tea drinker, I appreciate the generous size of the mug without it being awkward or cumbersome. These mugs hold the heat better than cheaper mugs. I will definitely order more!

My brother-in-law gave me one of his two iittala Taika Blue Mugs, which I had admired. I sent ordered a second one from FinnStyle so that I would have one for my husband as well as myself. It arrived well-packed and in just a couple of days. I could not want better service.
Beautiful and durable.

iittala Taika White/Blue Mugs are delightful
June 19, 2015
I have several patterns of iittala dishes and this is one of my favorites. The design is cheerful and the shape is very comfortable to hold and drink from. We use these large mugs for our evening coffee (decaf!) virtually every day.

i like the design on this mug. It does keep drinks hot ,which is nice. However, it is too tall for my single serve coffee maker . I thought others might want to know that. It is a good quality mug.
