Monday Morning Mugs: Death by Tea

Oh good grief, it's Monday again. Someone get me some biscuits, stat. And a cup of tea the size of my face.

Failing that, get me a cuppa in a mug that makes me smile all morning, until suddenly I don't mind it's Monday any more.

The Monday Morning Mugs series aims to do just that - not just for me, but for all your fellow Monday haters. This week, I'm sharing Death by Tea, a gorgeous little design shop run by Holly Betton, who describes herself as a 'professional colour-in-er'. I like her already.

As you can see from the Dinosaurs Are Cool mug above, she has a knack for pretty mugs that do something quite miraculous: make you glad you've finished your brew. I mean, what self-respecting human person could get to the end of a cup of tea drunk from a mug with a cute dinosaur on it, see that it says 'RAWWR!' in the bottom, and not smile?

And then there's the My Thinking Cup mug. I love the idea of - mid-stress - sitting down, having a cup of tea, and finding a lightbulb moment at the end of it.

Ah, a bear hugs mug. Everyone loves bear hugs. Except for bears. Don't try to hug bears.

There's others in her range, but these are my favourites. They're all £13.50 each from Not On the High Street, with a very reasonable postage charge.

Which would you choose?

  1. Matcha Sensation tea seems to have been given new life and fame as the rest of the world have become borderline obsessed with the healthy green powder. Matcha green tea sales figure have skyrocket in the United States in the past twenty five years as matcha has become one of the biggest food trends around.
