15 Creative Coffee and Tea Mugs

Before you start scrolling down the list, imagine a simple mug filled with your favorite warm caffeinated drink. What do you feel?

I bet it feels warm and home-like inside, doesn’t it?

This is because mugs aren’t just plain ceramic objects that hold our beverages – they’ve already become something meaningful with sentimental value. We even have our own favorite cups in our homes, which we hate sharing with other family members. And our tea or coffee probably doesn’t taste as good if we drink from someone else’s mug.

In this collection not only you’ll see the most creative coffee and tea mugs, but also some which help protect your private mug from sharing, so if you are looking for a cool cup – this list is a good place to start.
