I may have to switch my plan on what teas to use it for, and go to something I brew much cooler. I can barely hold the cup long enough to sip, my fingers are blistered!
When I first tested it out (with a Korean green and then sencha) I had no issues (it actually felt great in my hand), but last night I gave it a run with some Wuyi and YES, it's very, very HOT. Either you can't fill it up more than halfway (so you can hold it by the top) or just use it for cooler teas. I'll be doing the latter because I really love the feeling of it in my hands (when it's not burning away my fingertips).
