iittala

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

The Red Taika Mug -- Perfect for Christmas tea
I own the white and black, the blue, and the white Taika mugs. They are all beautiful. But the red Taika mug certainly is more festive. Perfect for Christmas and also for Valentine's Day morning hot chocolate, tea, or whatever.
ProsQuality, size, design, and beautiful color.

Great mug!
I love this mug! In December I was sent the Taika 10 year anniversary mug in this collection and was hooked! This one is a little thicker, just slightly, than the anniversary mug I originally fell in love with. I am very pleased to have this one as part of the collection. I will def buy more of them!

Good Purchase
The red taika mug arrived promptly and in perfect condition. It was a replacement for one ordered from another source which arrived chipped and unusable. The large capacity of the mugs are perfect for our morning cappacinos.

Beautiful!
This mug is gorgeous, and it is perfect for that double dose of morning coffee or tea. It microwaves well (doesn’t get too hot), and is dishwasher safe too.

Love it! I’ll be back for more. Thank you, Finnstyle!

Prompt and Well Priced
After Bed Bath and Beyond sent me a gray tote instead of my ordered Iittala mug, I turned to Finnstyle. My order arrived quickly with the correct merchandise and at a very reasonable price for this pattern. When I need more pieces I will turn to Finnstyle first.

Bring a little Folklore to your Teatime
I have been a huge fan of the Taika design ever since it first launched. My father bought two of these for me and my partner on our first Christmas-in-the-US to help ease the home sickness and bring a little Finnish design to our home. Beautiful good quality porcelain, sturdy cups, good quality printing and design with an excellent depth of colors.

We mix it with the deep red Teema for the holidays.

My favorite tea mug by far.

Nice addition to your Taika set. Taller and narrower than most mugs.
I got this as a gift. It works with Teema and of course the Taika dinnerware. Personally, I prefer the proportions of the Teema large mugs and Marimekko mugs. This mug is tall and narrow, larger than the Teema and Marimekko mugs. Nice if you like larger mugs, or already have the Taika set. However, I won't be buying more as I prefer the size and shape of Teema and Marimekko mugs.

Excellent Product and Service
I knew what to expect when I ordered this mug, having ordered another in a different color recently. The mug was very carefully packed and arrived within a few days of ordering. It was just as pretty as pictured. I can only speak for these mugs -- but the quality of the item and service I find to be excellent.

Perfect mug
I am absolutely delighted with this product. It's just the size I've been looking for and the Finnish folklore design is a pleasure to behold. Most cups are awkward to hold, some are top heavy and tipsy, some handles are too large or too small for my hands. Some have rims that are curled and difficult to drink from. This cup has none of those defects! And it holds a good cup and half of liquid.

iittala Taika Red Mug
Once I decided to get the dinner and salad/dessert plates in this wonderful pattern, I decided to get the mugs rather than the cups & saucers. They are beautifully styled and ample in size. I intend to use them at a holiday get-together for hot spiced cider. Will be handy to have all year round.

Fabulous Mug!
I was so pleased when I received the Taika mug. Not only is the pattern bright and fun but the mug is substantial. The thickness of the porcelain is perfect and adds just enough weight to the mug. The height accommodates enough of one's drink while still being able to keep hands warm around the mug. The only con is the price but then again it's Iittala so the quality is renowned. I've had smaller Iittala mugs for over 12 years without one chip and everyday use.

fun, functional, and folkloric
I didn't know iittala Taika existed in red until I found it on Finn Style. I took this mug to work, and it is a pleasure empty or filled with tea. Simply looking at it and turning it in my hand makes me happy!
ProsBeautiful, and the glossy interior has so far been resistant to staining from the I drink throughout the day.

Ittala Taika Red mug - love it
I have three Taika mugs now, a blue, white and red one. The red color is exceptional, love the design, size and durability of this mug. I use them as my everyday mug and love the red option. I hope this is not a temporary seasonal mug as the color is great. Thanks for having such a high quality product.

Great to complete my set
I have the blue and white,mugs but was frustrated last year when this Christmas limited edition ran out. Not sure why this isn't available year round -- maybe it costs more to produce.

It makes me smile
The product is perfect. The design is lovely.
ConsThe plethora of labels is beyond annoying - on each piece, two you can see and an invisible one that broke two fingernails to get off. And it wasn't made in Finnland.

Beautiful well made mug
Comfortable to hold, seemingly well made, beautiful shade of red.
ConsFor me the main attraction of the Taika dishes is the red fox/deer creature. It blends in a bit with the background red. For that reason I'd order a blue or white background mug next time. Still, it's a gorgeous festive mug.

Beautiful design, excellent quality, fun color!
I very much enjoy the Taika design: I have two blue and two white mugs, and now two red ones. It's a pleasure to choose the color I want each morning.

Now I'm waiting for the red coffee cups, because I want to have the same color choices with them--I already have two blue and two white coffee cups/saucers.

The red taika is my favorite. The red is intense and makes the design pop out.
WIth my blue and white mug, they look lovely together.
