Hand Thrown Pottery Love...
Original Bob Jensen mugs allow time to stop but for a moment as one enjoys a lovely cup of tea or coffee. A cup of tea creates a skip in time, a blissful skip in time...Loose leaf. Cotton bag. Organic or Fair trade, it doesn't matter what type or flavor or price, tea is tea, and tea is wonderful. We have countless flavors! Add a bit of earthy, sweet honey and you're as golden as the bees who made it. Hints of lemon, or little swirls of cooling mint, whichever flavor graces the cup often suits the moment best as it whirls inside hearty, one of a kind pottery. Plus, our one of a kind "tea tray" allows you to wring out your tea bag and place it in the built-in keeper, keeping the mug's base clean and dry. (We can thank Grandma Jensen for inspiring that genius idea!)
Our mugs are hearty, hand-thrown stoneware, the vessel's thick walls insulate the liquid inside, retaining heat far longer than its competitors, and its round shape sits comfortably in your hand. The slightly squiggly sides add much welcomed texture to the mug as the heat seeps through the earthen clay, sinking deep into the fingers that hold it, soothing tired hands at the end of a long day. Our mugs come in endless colors, shapes, and textures, and they are the ultimate mug to enjoy your favorite brew. We know you will love it as much as we do.
Sip. Soothe. Repeat.
