I like to drink coffee in steel glass tumbler. I do not prefer mugs made out of pingan i.e.china metal. But my daughter prefers only mugs and drinks only in that. What about you? Do you drink Tea/Coffee in a mug or steel tumbler?

I drink My tea out of LARGE mugs. Ceramic ones. If I am traveling then I will use my stainless steel travel mug.

No particular reason. From childhood I loved to drink coffee. So mind starts craving for coffee now and then. If I do not drink coffee, then I will get headache.

I tend to drink tea or coffee out of a china mug.My son loves to drink out of a stainless steel large tumbler as he says it stays hotter for alot longer,do not know if that is true as i have never tried it.

True. What your son says is perfectly correct. The heat stays longer in a metal glass. Moreover I feel the edges of a steel glass is bent and thin and the flow is easier and the wall of the glass touching our lips will be thin. But the mug wall is thick and edge is straight.

It depends on your tradition and habit. Some elders in my country always, ALWAYS drink their coffee in steel glasses shaped somewhat like a cylinder. I think it is better to drink form a cup because you get the "taste".

As you told it is habit. I get satisfaction if I drink in stainless steel glass because I am used to it from childhood.

I only have mugs, and I think they're kind of comforting. What is the benefit of the steel tumbler? Better taste?

The edges are thin unlike mugs. Handling is easy, will not break. So in many houses they use steel tumblers only. In some hotels also, they use steel tumblers.

Hi Buchi, just like you, I like drinking coffee as well! I prefer to take hot coffee with milk added to it. If cold milk is added to it the coffee will become cold very fast. To me, lukewarm coffee is not tasty at all. Therefore I usually would make the milk hot before it is stirred with coffee In order to keep the coffee hot for a longer time, I like using porcelain or china cup to hold my favorite hot drink Coffee would turn cold very fast if using cup glass or other material containers. I would use a porcelain mug if I wish to drink more coffee Happy posting!

Hai this is a valid reason which I never thought of. Very true, mugs retain heat for a longer time. I like moderately hot coffee. Very hot I cannot drink and I do not have patience to keep it for long. So steel tumbler is ok for me.

I prefer to have coffee in steel tumbler at home. When i am at office i have to have to have in mugs. There are no steel tumblers at office. In micro oven steel tumlers should not be kept so we use porcelain mugs.

Of course, in office they have porcelain mugs. They had steel tumbler in our office before. They were not washing it properly. Mugs are easy to wash. So they changed it to mugs.

I drink my tea and coffee in a mug. Actually I don't have glass cups but I really would like to have a painted steel one, those were normal in past here, now nobody has them anymore, but I love they look so vintage! Also remind me of my grandmother as she used them.

Hi. Buchi_bulla. I usually will drink coffee/tea in a mug. Or I may drink it out of a plastic cup. I don't have a steel tumbler that I may use.

In South India, in many families, we use steel tumbler to drink coffee. Further, if relatives come, we have to offer coffee or tea in steel tumblers only. Hence in my house we drink coffee in steel tumblers. But my daughter prefers only mug.

I have only ever used porcelin mugs, and occasionally one that is made of strong glass, if that is what is offered. I think that a steel tumbler would get too hot with the steaming hot liquid in it, and that I would burn my lips on the side of the cup. It would keep the coffee warmer though, but at the expense of my lips, if I were to burn them, drinking it.

The edge of the steel tumbler will not be hot as the hot liquid will be a bit lower in level. However porcelain mug is always convenient for many and it is widely used too.
