Back before Christmas, I included a Harney & Sons logo mug in my tea order, but I hadn't realized what a whopper of a mug this is! I don't normally drink 11 ounces of tea at a time, but I certainly can now that I have this mug. It was just $6, which is certainly a fair price, and since Harney is one of my favorite tea vendors I wanted this mug for my small collection. It *is* a collection if you have more than two of something, right?
Here are two more tea logo mugs, from Twinings (from the shop in London) and Yorkshire Gold (purchased at a British goods shop, whose name I can't remember, in the Atlanta area). These can usually be found in my tea cabinet in the kitchen holding various spoon infusers and teaspoons.
I also have mugs from Upton Tea and American Classic Tea from the Charleston Tea Plantation owned by Bigelow. I've seen a vintage Lipton tea mug on eBay featuring the man in the white cap sipping tea, but I have a feeling I'll come across that in an antique mall someday. Do you know of any more tea logo mugs I should be looking for?
