Do you need a handle because of the heat or just because that is how you like it?

That's just how I like it. I often cup my tea in my hands, but I feel lost without the handle. I prefer the heft of a bigger mug too so that one would have been perfect. Where would you put the handle though? Put it on one side and its ok for righties, but not lefties.

I think the design of this cup is more like a Japanese soup bowl. I hold it with one hand with my thumb on the top rim and my fingers on the bottom.

Isn't it difficult to stuff the tea bag into that little hole? What about the string and tag?

That's sort of what I envisioned. Is it easy to knock over? Say by a clumsy kitty or meandering dog with a huge tail?

Andy you rip off the paper tage and thread the string through the mesh holes. That keeps the tea bag in place.

It is a very wide cup so it is very stable, but of course part of its design is that it tips. I would say the fact that it is wider than a normal mug is cancelled out by the tipping design and it ends up about as stable as a regular mug. i would not worry any more about this mug tipping then any other mug.
