This Elephant Mug Has a Spot for Your Tea Bag After It’s Done Brewing

One of my favorite rituals is that I start every morning and end every evening with a hot mug of green tea. So, naturally, I’ve become a mug hoarder. Although I have more than I can possibly use in a week, I just might have to make some extra room for this adorable elephant mug that was designed to be used with tea.

Elephant Tea Mug

The mug comes from Urban Outfitters (unexpected, right?), but it’s available on Amazon. What makes this mug so cool is that after you let the tea bag brew in the hot water, you can take it out and put it in the compartment, separate from the liquid, which is designed to hold the tea bag. No longer will you have to rush to the garbage can so you don’t drip it on the floor.

The mug holds 10 ounces of liquid and is dishwasher and microwave safe. It intentionally looks distressed so it has a pottery relic, as noted in the description. Just when you thought you had a favorite mug already, this one might sneak in as your new go-to!
