Mugs and Cups

Mugs:- There is a coffee mug for each situation you can imagine. Whether you need one to keep your coffee warm on a camping trip or a cool mug to take to work, you will surely find plenty of options. But their special purpose is not the only thing that sets different types of coffee mugs apart. Needless to say, each mug type has a particular purpose and comes with a distinct set of features. Decore your Dining Classic Mug: These mugs hold about 8oz of liquid and are usually made of ceramic. They have the same size base and the lid, but the handle is the one thing that makes the difference. For example, the glass mugs may have a very small handle, which could make them awkward to hold.?

 Travel Mug: Given the number of available models, choosing the best travel coffee mug that suits your taste can be tricky. However, the heat retention properties and a snug seal are the most important characteristics. On top of that, you should also consider picking up one that is dishwasher-ready.

 Demitasse: To make things clear, a demitasse is another name for an espresso cup. These should not have any decoration on the inside and their top capacity caps at 3.4oz. The important thing is to choose a thicker-walled espresso cup to retain the optimal heat.

 Tumbler: They combine the best properties of travel and classic mugs. They feature the shape of a classic mug but they are usually much taller and easily fit inside a cup holder. They are an excellent choice if you need a mug/cup that can retain heat for a long time.

 Personalized Mugs: There is nothing like a custom mug that features a unique design which makes your coffee drinking experience special. Today, you can customize almost any mug or a cup regardless of the material or type.

Cups:- And every tea, a good tea cup! From the time a tea leaf gets plucked from the shrub, every little thing it comes in contact with alters its taste and the quality. So it is time you took a closer look at what is in your hands and how it is affecting your tea drinking experience.Ceramic: It is widely used in teaware manufacture. Ceramic refers to the baked clay pottery made in the kilns but includes stoneware, porcelain and terracotta. They are a popular choice both in-terms of the aesthetics and usage.

Porcelain and Bone China: They (which are also sometimes clubbed under ceramic) have been used for ages as teaware, and are the material of choice when it comes to drinking tea. When made in the right way, porcelain is amazingly non-porous, and the vitrified glaze makes it non-reactive as well. Bone china is like porcelain, except in that it uses the bone ash mixed with clay.

Glass: They meet all the criteria for the ideal teaware listed above. Glass pitchers are used for brewing the tea as well. Vitrified glass does not react with tea at all, but it can lose heat quickly depending on its thickness. Borosilicate glass is a good choice, almost as good as porcelain and less fragile.

 Stainless Steel: are the hardiest of the lot, but the material does not always live up to its name. Leaching from the stainless steel kitchenware has been a concern of late as it was found out that scratched stainless steel utensils can leach iron and nickel into the food.

 Plastic: Like stoneware and clay cups, they are not recommended by tea connoisseurs at all. Use them if you must, but know that not all the plastics are chemically inert and can leach toxic elements on exposure to high heat.
