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.
Yes that's coffee in there but I use it for tea as well.
|>>|| No. 9771
I don't drink tea very often. Though I get through a shitload of coffee.
I use this one just because it's a decent size. I've never actually been to Starbucks...

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.

This thread has made me want tea, but I am out of teabags. Time to go to the corner shop.

>>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.
Can you get me some hobnobs while you're there.
|>>|| No. 9775
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.

>>9778 handle broke on main backup mug, that is. The backup backup is a creme egg cup.
|>>|| No. 9780
I ordered something from Sports Direct and this came with it. Ended up returning the thing I ordered for a full refund, so I got a free giant mug. Shame about the logo.

Get some enamel paint and splodge it all over.
Fugly chavshop mug to some lovely art in the time it takes paint to dry.

20p job. Never even been to Wales myself. It is exactly three cups of my funky teapot.
My parents have always had a carpeted bathroom, despite it being a disgusting concept.

I'll post my tea in a bit, this thread just made me think -
The url cym.ru is available in the sense it's just being "parked" by sedo.com
Could someone put it to good use? It seems wasted there.
|>>|| No. 9786
That doesn't mean it's available, it means that someone has registered it but that they're not using it. Sedo is a domain marketplace; A Sedo parking page is the equivalent of a "for sale" sign on a house.

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.

I would like to know where you people get your extra large mugs, in particular the >>9777 'fat bastard' mug.
|>>|| No. 9791
I got one from Instore years ago but haven't seen one in a shop since. I don't really want to pay extra to get one delivered.
|>>|| No. 9795
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:
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.

To be honest, when I want a pint of tea I have it in a pint glass.
I'm sure this makes me a godless ehathen and all.

I don't own any mugs as I don't drink tea, coffee or any other hot drinks.
|>>|| No. 9802
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.
|>>|| No. 9804
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.

You sick fuck.
I like my milk fresh from the cow, so to speak.

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.
I would've appropriately accompanied this post with teacock.jpg at this stage but /nom/ is unfortunately SFW.

This one has a really nice design, but only ships from the U.S. I wonder if I could find something like this closer to home.

What's all that shit you're wearing? If the army's new tactic is to hire baby-faced cherubs to murder foreigners in the hopes that their hearts will melt and they'll be unable to defend themselves, I fear it may work.

People have taken to gifting me tea related things on gifting occasions recently, which I cannot complain about. This is one of those gifts.
it's a decent size too.

These are half the price on the website, but they're out of stock. Damn it all...
|>>|| No. 9836
Also this one but it's completely impractical for drinking (although there's a lip on the other side to accommodate tea flow).
|>>|| No. 9840
Normally I'd agree but what's it's capacity like? And you clearly couldn't put a chocolate digestive in there. It doesn't look wide enough for a Bourbon or Custard Cream either.
|>>|| No. 9841
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.
|>>|| No. 9842
This sounds like a challenge.
Expect a report in several days.
|>>|| No. 9843
Bilgewater. The convection of the hot tea upwards combined with the conductive barrier of air between the ceramic and the biscuit will result in chocomelt that's well within acceptable levels.
|>>|| No. 9844
Place a hot mug on a stone or porcelain coaster. After about 5 minutes or so take the mug off and feel how hot the coaster gets. The whole mug will easily get warm enough for meltage.
|>>|| No. 9845
Bought one as a gift. As with most SUCK UK products, it's a bit rubbish - the swatch doesn't really match up well with the purported strength of the tea.
|>>|| No. 9849
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...
(A good day to you Sir!)

If we don't cling tightly to our stereotypes, we'll just have to be miserable for no fucking reason at all, rather than from taking a bizarre sense of pride in our collective adoration of banality.

You're just jealous of our Tea. The only reason you Frenchman don't drink it is because your silly baguettes are too wide to dunk in a mug.
