|"Tea to Go"|
I am a huge tea fan...ginger peach to earl grey, I just about love it all ~ and since I seem to be in my car often, I enjoy the convenience of a travel mug.
The feel of stainless on my lips or in my hand, however, is just plain, well, COLD,
so when it comes to picking the perfect vessel for my hot tea -- porcelain is exactly what I enjoy.
I can lose myself for just a few minutes while I'm sitting, bumper to bumper on the highway waiting for the traffic to clear...I can imagine myself sitting in a cafe sipping freshly brewed,
hot tea in a porcelain cup.
This eco-friendly Terra bird pattern Tea To Go cup by HUES & BREWS
has some unique features I've enjoyed using.
The lid is silicone, helping to keep the beverage cold (or in the case of my tea) hot
-- and it helps prevent spills on the go!
The double wall procelain cup traps in air for extra insulation.
There's also a silicone stopper on the bottom that prevents water from entering the hollow cavity [that double walled insulation] when washing the cup.
And the pattern? It reminds me of a trip to South East Asia...and the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden in Hong Kong, a place where men brought their caged birds and hung them outside to sing to each other while they socialized.
|Spirit 16oz. sip cup|
This green [BPA free] acrylic sip cup is sturdy and comes with its own straw.
It's even designed to hold hot beverages
[although I can't remember the last time I had the urge to sip something hot through a straw!].
Hues & Brews sells through retailers only...and their website will help in finding a retailer near you. They offer a wide variety of i-pots [Steve Jobs, eat your heart out] that make perfect gifts.
