Tea mugs are really nice when you want a quick cuppa and do not have time for the full works. They are tall and deep enough for the teabag to steep comfortably in the hot water. They are especially practical when you are alone and want to settle in with a good book. It is much easier to transport a tea mug to your cozy corner as there is no need for a saucer.
These mugs from Roy Kirkham are dainty and just the perfect size. They are 2½ inches in diameter and 3½ inches tall. The tea stays warm longer because of the smaller diameter.
