I have featured mugs numerous times on the blog, but I can’t resist posting more. They’re such easy things to buy, aren’t they?

I drink tea all year and I actually like a hot cuppa even during the summer months. As a coffee-in-the-morning kind of gal,Â I find that making an herbal tea after lunch is a great alternative toÂ caffeinatingÂ my thoughts all day long.
With the rise of tea`s popularity in recent years, there is far more variety and easy access to unique blends from far-away places than ever before.
Today I`m showcasing a few mugs that make tea time that much more quaint. These are also really easy to get your hands on (!) since they`re widely available at Chapers-Indigo and make a perfect, random, `thinking about you`gift for a friend, colleague or parent. They make a really sweet add-on to an online book order for curling up on quiet weekends this season.

And now this is fantastic- the mug with a perfect-fit filter for loose tea (below). The lid doubles as a filter holder for whenÂ steepingÂ is done. I have one of these and I love using it at the office.
Mug with lid and filter, $20
Do you have set criteria for the mugs you use? Do they all match? Or are they random? Does size matter? Colour? Shape? My mugs have one thing in common – they’re white (or mostly white). Surprised?

Note: You can see I’ve been enjoying many meals and tea breaks on my balcony except for one day when it was raining.
