There’s one drink above all others I drink by the pint: tea. I think I manage as many pints of tea in a day as I do beer in a week. At least, when the week doesn’t include pub sessions over and above drinks-after-choir.
Once upon a time, I could buy nice pint-sized tea mugs. I had four, and used them all regularly. Now alas I’m down to two, as one of them got lost(!) and another developed a hairline crack and had to go.
But nowadays I can’t find them in the shops! The only pint mugs in evidence are tall thin ones, that’ll be at high risk of capsizing disastrously if I take them to bed – as I do every day. The ones I like have a big wide base and are stable and safe in bed (provided I’m alone there)!
The picture contrasts a nice cuppa tea I just made with a couple of mugs and cups of regular sizes. Anyone know where I can get mugs in something like this size and shape these days?
