What you drinking your tea out of? I got this little beauty from Asda. It can hold about .75 litres. It's got the volume of about three normal cups, which I find totally inadequate for my purposes.

My Mr Men Mug which I measured as holding at least 0.8L, next to a pint mug for comparison.

Good for you. I was at sea once, and my only mug smashed. I had to use a coffee jar for two weeks, which was shite, but then the Mate bought me a Starbucks mug in LA for me to use. I've never been so touched.

>>9770 again. My favourite day-to-day mug is one I got from poundland about 4 years ago. It reads "iF FOUND FULL DRiNK"
Aside from the lowercase "i"s, I would be heartbroken if it ever gets smashed, mainly due to the healthy brown staining I've built up inside it over the years.

That's a lovely story.

This is mine, 99p from the Co-Op. I originally bought it for someone else to use, but then decided the sizeable handle (so you don't burn your knuckles) and capacity (0.4L, not as big as yours but I have another larger mug for when I fancy more tea) was perfect for me.

I have quite a few other mugs that I hold dear, I might post pictures of them too.

Look at this fat bastard, /nom/. Next to a regular cup for scale. It holds a smidgen over a litre.

I don't actually use it that often because a litre of tea in one go is enough to send me a bit jittery. I'm a bit of a pansy when it comes to caffeine.

>>9775 Yeah after the incident at sea I take backup mugs with me now, I'd post pics but the handle broke on my main mug, which is a shame because my brother bought it. It says, "Super Bro". I'll fix it when I get home. Mugs have a peculiarly sentimental value to me. My other big mug is from Sports Direct. God knows why, but they stock specially oversize mugs and bowls. Those bowls are a Godsend; they make it so much easier to eat a packet of value noodles.

Er, okay!

The rainbow mug is the oldest of the lot, I bought it when I was 12 on a family holiday in Devon. It doesn't get used any more but for about 5-6 years it was "my" mug at home and I'd get quite shitty if anyone else used it.* I don't use it any more as it's been superseded by white-and-green mug above, but I won't throw it out. The big black mug is Jimbo (the Jumbo Mug) which holds 0.5L of hot beverage. The two white Ikea mugs are special simply because I think they're really pretty, and the colours hold a special meaning for me. I recently started hiding them in my room because my housemate was using them and not washing them up properly, and unlike the rest of you I don't regard tannin stains on mugs to be a positive thing.

* As you can see, this is a running theme with my mugs. I don't like people using any of "my" mugs unless given express permission/trust. Housemate had also started using white-and-green mug of late, which pissed me off immensely for reasons I can't quite rationalise. Threads like this occasionally make me realise how incredibly autistic I am.

Always thought it was only my couple of mates and myself that insisted of drinking at least a pint of tea. Everyone else I've ever encountered who drinks tea seems to do so out of what I can only describe as an egg-cup.

Neither of my big mugs are particularly special, one has my wrong age on from a past Birthday and the other has Arsenal on despite not having actively followed football for some time.

Where are some good places to buy more interesting but still good-sized mugs?

I'm surprised nobody has posted pic related yet though...

They're produced by a company called Windhorse which I'm fairly sure is local to the Cornwall region, and I know for a fact they distribute through other gift-y shops in Britain as they're on sale in at least one shop in my hometown (quite a way from Devon/Cornwall).

Here's a website based in Penzance selling them (and other popular pieces of this range like teapots/tall mugs/cups and saucers etc. They do a split teapot-and-cup thingummy which is rather nice too.): http://www.thepaintedbird.co.uk/hoopy-mug-2074-p.asp

And here's the first link I found on eBay selling my mug:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-KITCHENWARE-GIFT-CERAMIC-RAINBOW-COLOUR-HOOPS-MUG-TAPERED-SET-AVAILABLE-/171097578588?pt=UK_Home_HomeDecor_Accessories&hash=item27d635dc5c

Under any other circumstances I'd regard someone trying to "pinch" my mug like this as a stabbing offence, but seeing as I went off rainbow when I stopped being a 14 year old girl and you're from .gs I'm helping you. It's a good mug, the handle's not too small and the inside is green, which is good. They're dishwasher and microwave safe, naturally, and the capacity is about 300ml, standard mug's worth. They do even do a more traditional "short" mug with straight sides, if you'd prefer that shape - they should be available through either of the links I gave you.

Then how about you fuck off out of this thread? Your kind aren't welcome here.

And also stop being so restrictive, a mug is a perfectly acceptable vessel for drinking anything out of. It just feels a little strange at first, but after some huffs of amyl nitrite you can relax into it and it slips down smooth as you like.

Nothing wrong with it in my opinion, although I don't think ordinary pint glasses are heat proof. Probably be fine if you're brewing in a pot, but if you're pouring water straight into the glass from a kettle it's going to shatter sooner or later.

I can't help but feel like this hunt for the biggest mug is possibly a working-class version of buying shiny sports cars. Overcompensating, perhaps? Calm down, dears, I bet you're all pleasingly average. Besides, it's not the size of the engine, it's the skill of the driver.

To be fair, most mug-biscuit-holder designs that I've seen would suffer from serious heat transferrance issues for chocolate biscuits. Even bottom loading ones, as the proximities between hot ceramic and chocolatey topping are too close.

My parents bought me a Morrissey mug that they got at one of his gigs, it said "Share some greased tea with me" on it.

Which doesn't make sense because:

1. The "tea" in reference is the meal, tea.
2. I don't even drink tea.

Whatever, the thing washed off in the dishwasher anyway...
