Keeps tea warm for hours. Love the handle for easy travel. I clean mine with Smart Soak from Mandala Tea and any tea stains are gone. It looks brand new! I don’t use the hidden tea pouch because moisture gets in and ruins the stored tea.” Read full tasting note
Just bought my first Carry Mugs to replace some severely used and abused timolinos.
Personally, I got the “mango” one
because orange is the best colourand the new Me to We one which supports Kenya by giving six months of clear water to a child in a developing community. Honestly, that was one of the most guilt free purchases I’ve made as of late.
So far I’ve only used the Me to We one, but I definitely think it’s an improvement upon the timolinos. For starters, a larger brew basked it ALWAYS a good thing, and the ‘handle’ on the top is really, really convenient. Plus, it seems to retain heat just as well as my timolinos do/did. And the cherry on top, the design is much cuter. I’m honestly kind of slapping myself from waiting so long…” Read full tasting note
I was looking for a new travel mug to purchase and decided to give the carry travel mug by DAVIDsTEA a try. I have yet to own one of their travel tumblers and was pretty curious to test it out.
I’ll admit the first thing that got my attention was the colour. I purchased the carry travel mug in mint, and I’m a huge fan of all things mint (as in the colour and the tea).
The second thing I also really like was that it has a handle. This is a huge plus for me, since I often commute using public transit in busy downtown traffic, and my hands are usually tied up with other bags and my purse. Having that extra handle makes life easier (as sometimes I hang onto it by my pinky if I need to).
Overall I’m fairly impressed with my carry travel mug. It has a stainless steel inner wall that keeps my tea piping hot for hours. It has a removable mesh infuser basket that is a fairly decent size that allows for good leaf expansion. However you aren’t able to control the steep times, so if you’re on the go, trying to discard the tea leaves may be a pain.
It also has a secret tea compartment to store extra tea, although I tend to find if the travel mug is not staying in a constant upright position, the leaves tend to get wet and damp. It is a neat idea though.

This is the best travel mug I have ever used. I mostly left it uncapped (mostly) but it kept my tea HOT for a long time. I underestimated it and burned the crap out of my tongue when taking a sip. Towards the end it was warm but still a good drinking temperature. That was over a period of 6-7 hours. The design includes an infuser basket that attaches to a strainer. The infuser basket is detachable. Underneath the lid is an extra compartment where you can store extra loose tea. I didn’t have any issues with the those tea leaves getting moist or anything for the time I had the cap on (close to an hour).” Read full tasting note
We don’t want to alarm anyone, but we think we’ve created the perfect travel mug. Don’t believe us? What if we told you that it’s completely leakproof and double-walled, to keep your tea piping hot for hours on end. Or that it has a removable fine mesh infuser, plus a strainer to keep tea leaves out of every sip. Did we mention the easy-carry lid, or the hidden tea compartment? How about the big 16 oz size? Yeah. We told you it was perfect. Designed in-house and made exclusively for DAVIDsTEA.
Capacity: 16 oz/473 ml
