A nice cup of tea is surely one of life’s greatest pleasures. There’s nothing like curling up with a good book and a steaming cup of tea to help take the chill off and make you feel calm and relaxed. Whether you choose a traditional black tea, a floral green or white tea, an herbal tea or even a smoky lapsang souchong, more and more people are discovering the simple joys of a good cuppa’.

A great cup of tea calls for a great cup to hold it in. Part of what makes tea such a pleasant experience for the senses is the simple color and beauty of the drink itself. This makes a clear glass mug an ideal choice. These are especially suited to a “flower tea”, in which dried flowers of different types are arranged together in such a way that they quite literally “bloom” when the hot water is added. Watching the bloom can be as relaxing an experience as drinking the tea itself.

If you own a tea shop or if you sell a variety of teas among your other items, then custom printed clear glass mugs make an ideal item for sale in your shop. You can have the name of your business, an inspirational message or whatever words you like printed on the side an either a plain or fancy script. These make wonderful items for any tea lover.

A nice way to sell these mugs in your shop it to combine them with a tea ball or strainer, a pretty stirring spoon and some small packets of delicious teas. These make a great gift, and allow people to sample the different types of teas that you offer. Once they have tried them, they will likely enjoy them and want to purchase more. You can even create and package an “ultimate tea lovers” set which includes a special tea pot, one of your custom printed mugs, a tea ball or strainer and a nice assortment of tea samples. These are especially popular around the winter holiday season as well as valentines and mother’s day.

Even people who don’t drink tea would love to have on of these mugs. They are ideal for coffee, hot chocolate or any other hot beverage. The wide assortment of different styles makes it easy to find just what you are looking for. Just as they pair so well with tea to make a great gift item, these combine equally well with samples of coffee, hot chocolate or apple cider mulling spice to make a gift that is perfect for any occasion. You can even package them with a small bag of chicken noodle soup stock and sell them as an “emergency cold or flu relief kit”, which would make thoughtful and whimsical gift for a friend.

A nice hot cup of fragrant tea is just the thing to warm one’s body and soul, and when paired with a beautiful custom printed tea mug, you have a sensory experience that is second to none. It truly is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
