I want a new mug. I like thick mugs for coffee but not tea. I want a mug to make me happy!

Denby & Emma Bridgewater (the massive cocoa ones)

I have Emma Bridgewater espresso mugs and I absolutely love them (sad innit) but I think I'd find them too thick for tea.

My current tea cups are Sainsbury mugs. They are ok but not a source of joy!

Pictures might help grin

Not Denby! Denby fall over if they are on the carpet! Le Creuset are thick and not rounded so don't topple.

Oh, I think I read your OP wrong. You DON'T want a thick mug, is that right?

LEMtheoriginal Fri 02-Feb-18 18:33:27

Yes definitely not wanting a thick mug but then I'm not sure I want thin binr china eitherhmm

I have a Jamie Oliver (don't like him, but do like his mugs) old style mug, fits the bill for me.
These ones

This is your man. Big but nice and thin. Villeroy & boch

I like the v&b but would like a pattern blush

I used to have a nice, big mug with 'Twat' on the bottom. grin

Current favourites

I have a selection of these; I'm not keen on thick mugs either but these are very pleasing.

CocoLoco87 Fri 02-Feb-18 18:43:33

That v&b mug is beautiful. I'd like some red ones just like that

Out of all of those of say the hungry caterpillar one makes the best brew as it's so thin.

Grumpy old.woman one makes a good comfort brew and holds the heat well. It's also a good size.

The Lionel Richie one is just amazing and makes a good brew to boot. I love them all.

LEMtheoriginal Fri 02-Feb-18 18:45:06

Omg the grumpy old woman could be the one!!!

I agree the Wrendale, Royal Worcester are perfect for tea! I like the pheasant and robin design. Amazon do them a bit cheaper.

I have about 20 different mugs, all handmade / pottery type things, and all a souvenir from holidays or days out. They all have names relating to where they came from eg “the St Ives mug”, “the Manchester mug” or “the Majorca mug” Everyone in the family has their own favourites and I quite like having a variety of different shapes and sizes depending whether you fancy a big comforting cup of tea or a quick coffee before you nip out the door.

I get mine from Sainsbury's - they do a big range and great designs.

My mugs (not the family mugs...they have cheapo ones from a Sainsburys) are EB but my current favourite is my new mug from Cath Kidson...I 😍 Peter Pan you can fly you can fly you can fly 😂
