Mugs to help you mix your favourite brew to just-how-you-like-it by matching the colour guide on the inside.
Available in Tea or Coffee styles.
Dangerous business, tea making. Especially in England, where preparing a bad cuppa for your colleagues could put you in all sorts of trouble. That's where our My Cuppa Mugs are rather quite handy. Simple in concept, the My Cuppa Mugs have a colour reference guide printed vertically on the inside which indicates to the tea maker, exactly what shade of brew they are aiming for when adding milk. The guide begins with a dark colour (which is in fact pure tea without any milk added at all) and scales through a number of different shades gradually getting lighter until reaching the lightest colour, which is a very milky tea. Each colour/type of tea is unique and explained for the user's ease. For example; a very dark tea with very little milk is classed as a "Builder's Brew", whereas a lighter shade is classified as the "Classic British". Quite simply... genius.
I read others' reviews about this mug breaking as soon as you put hot water in it, and I thought: 'oh well, it's probably just a bad batch. I'll buy one anyway.' Sadly, it's not just a bad batch. The product really is that badly made. I contacted the company that makes it about the problem and they completely ignored me. Points for product idea: 10/10. Points for actual product: zero. Points for customer service: zero.
Really disappointed with the quality of this mug - bought from Serif Ltd. There are numerous uneven or rough areas and a number of large (up to 20mm across) bumps, presumably in the glaze. Looks like a cheap mug or a 2nd.
The transfer is a nice idea but the mug looks like one from a pound shop.
All bought in jest with a mate from work, he's always whinging about an extra splash of milk, or no that's too much, so bought him this & surprisingly it's easy to match the colours on the side of the cup too!!
I bought this cup to stop my work colleagues making me rubbish tea... it worked! I say "Milky", "English Breakfast", "Builder's Brew" or "Just Tea" and they match the colour. That might make me sound a bit fussy but the great thing is that you can say whichever brew you fancy... I don't stick with the same which adds a nice quirk to each cup of tea.
The bad things about this cup: It's a bit too small; The matt finish on the outside looks nice but is hard to clean (it is glossy on the inside though); I think builder's brew is a milky cuppa but the label has it as a strong cuppa.
Some reviewers have said about this cup cracking with hot water. This didn't happen with mine. I'd recommend pouring hot water into it in the sink the first time you use it in case you do get a bad one.
Ordered at 4pm one day and here first thing the next. Replacement for one bought 2 years ago that unfortunately got dropped from a height, and my Dad 'hadn't had a proper cup of tea' since. Tea and tranquility now restored. (Saw some negative reviews, but this one seems sturdy and handled it's contents in a proper mug like manner). Only slight criticism is it came in a HUGE box with a tree's worth of padding..
