Novelty Tea Cups & Mugs
It occurred to me the other day that we've featured quite a few offbeat tea cups and mugs over the years and that it might be fun to gather them all in one place. This is hardly a comprehensive selection, mind you, but just a few of our favorites.
If you're looking for a place to keep your tea spoon, MugStir's got it figured out. Check it out here.
If it's consistency you seek, try the MyCuppa, which is color-coded for the convenience of those who like milk in their tea (or coffee).
Along the same lines, here's a mug that can be personalized so that anyone making you a cup of tea will know what you like.
What to do with those pesky tea bag strings that always end up floating in your tea? Problem solved.
Hot tea at 3,000 rpm? Hell, yeah. Bring on the Self-Stirring Mug. Hammacher Schlemmer is apparently not selling these at the moment but you can find out more about the product at their web site. More on the Whirl Wind Self Stirring Mug here.
Fake tea glasses? Sure, why not. Check out the impressive selection at fake food and beverage maker, Just Dough It.
If anyone ever tells you you have an ugly mug, don't take it too hard. It might not be as bad as you think. More here.
And while it's not clear if this is the world's biggest tea cup, it's sure gotta be a contender.
