Some I’ve bought many are gifts from friends and family. Every one has meaning and function. Large thick mugs to hold in two hands savoring heat and flavor while looking out a window or better yet, sitting outside. A meditation in observation of all senses. The small mugs to use while focusing on something else, to refill often from a hot kettle. A more rapid infusion from both thought and tea. The favorite mug filled with a favorite blend to savor like a Sunday morning prayer.
