1). How is it for making a good hot cup? I love it. Nice, fast, and mess-free!
2). Is it cost effective? No, definitely not! lol If you are concerned with costs, I'd avoid the Keurig and stick with tea bags or infusers. HOWEVER, it can come in handy for just brewing some hot water very quickly. For instance, I would toss a green tea bag into a cup and let the Keurig brew it. You don't always have to use the $1+-a-pop cup made for the Keurig. Heck, I've used it to make Cup O Noodles! But if you're happy with your tea pot then I wouldn't even bother.
3). Hard to clean? Not at all.

how does the tea effect the bladder?
i drank a couple cups last night and i had to make a pee pee several times.
also, that kava tea i got from wal mart is amazing....it tastes so good.
thats my favorite one so far...
still a mint guy though
- Tea consumption does not produce a diuretic effect unless the amount of tea consumed at one sitting contained more than 300mg of caffeine. This is equivalent to six or seven cups of tea at one sitting. - Single servings of caffeine at doses exceeding 300mg may have a diuretic effect.

I listen to Good Eats and drink only full-leaf tea.
The powder leaf teas are just awful by comparison.
Starbucks Calm is great as is their Vanilla Rooibos--i enjoy their tea a lot. Teavana is awesome too. ^_^
Anything full-leaf. I prefer it bagged but only because that little mesh ball thing is better used for something like mulling spices imo. And because I'm just too lazy and I always make a mess trying to get the tea into the ball.
