Take your tea with you on any adventure with a ceramic mug by Canister.

About this project

Steep is a 16 ounce (475ml) ceramic mug that works with any regular mason jar lid, making it water tight. Each Steep also comes with one lid and band.

Rewards:

The storage compartment lets you bring fresh tea with you, or you can hang on to your used tea for a second go or if there isn't a good place to dispose of it.

Our wool felt koozies help keep your tea warm.

This is our favorite tea blend, a smooth black tea that's perfect for the morning. Made right here in house.

You can take Steep anywhere. Letting you get where you need to a little bit easier, or allowing you to escape to someplace new.

Although Steep was designed for tea, I'm sure you can think of a few other good options.

We design and make Steep in-house, from sketching through casting.

A special thanks to Podington Bear for the lovely music. You can see more of his work here:

Risks and challenges

Production of our mug is completely done by hand. From the mixing of the slip to loading of the kilns nothing is automated. This process takes time and we feel it is well worth it.

Production will not extend beyond our regular and sustainable levels. If donations exceed the amount projected, there will be an adjusted timeline for those deliveries. We are confident that we can meet our November deadlines and look forward to sending something your way.

FAQ

  • Steep is indeed dishwasher safe. We do recommend that it be placed on the top shelf with the rest of the cups and glasses.

    Last updated:
  • Steep is indeed microwavable. It will be warm afterwards, so be careful. However, remember not to have a lid on it. Metal is not microwave safe.

    Last updated:
  • Steep comes with one regular mason jar lid and band.
