I don’t make a secret out of it: I am addicted to tea and coffee. So what better way to prove my love for these delicious brews than showcasing some of the best mug designs. Some of these are clever, some funny and others just plain gorgeous. When I started researching extraordinary mugs I didn’t realise that there were so many unique designs out there. These are the ones I found and like for one of the above mentioned reasons. In case you’re wondering, I drink my tea the British way.
