Travel mug

by Caletara » Sep 14th, '05, 10:10

I have been looking all over for a good tea mug that i can bring to work and class and throw in my bag or purse without worrying about it, but all the travel mugs ive come accross are so ugly! I love Adagio's teaware and would definatly buy a tea mug if they made one!

I got an awesome thermos from a professor as a gift. it has no brand labeled on it so unfortunately i cant tell u where to get one but its so awesome! Its tall and cylindrical and holds about 3 cups of tea. Its VERY well insulated and the students i sit next to in class often compliment the smell from the steam that billows out when i open it up. The coolest part though, is that after you take the cup/lid off, the tea still isnt exposed to the air. It has a black button on top u push that opens up the top valve and allows you to pour out tea and then promptly close it with a push of the same button. I always had the problem before that when i took out my cup the tea would quickly cool, but this thermos doesnt have that problem! its so great!

I've got one of these.
The instructions seem to indicate that you can't drink out of it with the infusing basket in, but I do it routinely - no problems. Unlike most of the french press travel cups I've had, the hole from which you sip has a "grid" in it which prevents escaped leaves from getting in your mouth.

Only $10, and it has a handy loop on it so that you can carry it with a shoulder strap or clip it to your bag.

I've got the stainless steel version of the OXO travel mug. It has silicone seals with a push button to close the opening. It is truly spill proof when it's closed. Bed Bath & Beyond has them.

OK, so I'm a little late to the party on this forum thread (!), but thought I'd mention a round-up post I did comparing a bunch of the travel mugs out there for tea drinkers.

Tea Travel Mugs: A Buyer's Overview of the Options

Hope no one minds the little plug. I'd been researching the mugs and realized there's quite a few options out there, so hopefully the post will help others find what they're after. Personally, I like Teas Etc's travel mug the best.

I'd like it if Adagio had a branded mug too.
You think they'd jump at the opportunity for free advertising.
Right now I've been using cheap <$10 plastic mugs, though the boiling water has warped the inside of both of them (you get what you pay for?). Although I like stainless steel, it does seem to add an odd taste to lighter teas. I think given the choice I'd choose a BPA-free plastic, over glass or other materials since I tend to be a bit of a klutz.
The built in strainer/steeper is of little use to me since I either brew at home or use adagio's "fill it yourself" teabags.
I think if I took loose leaf tea to work in a small bag or tin, they'd not believe me when I told them what it was, and very likely send me for drug testing.

I have a Starbucks thermos that I love. It keeps the tea hot for hours, holds two cups, and is completely leak-proof as far as I can tell.

I have a Thermos E5 16 oz. travel mug - it keeps my tea at whatever temperature I want it, for longer than I could need it to. It is a bit pricy for a travel mug, but I definitely consider it worth it.

Come to think of it, I haven't had any lighter-tasting teas in it, so I'm not sure if it imparts a flavor. More research forthcoming!

Hello. I got a great stainless steel travel mug from tea mugs dot com. I got the silver dragon model. It is durable, is comfortable to carry and does not leak :D . I hope this helps.
