No , I'm not buying you one but I'm giving you  the Min seal of approval.
Lifeventure 300ml thermal mug 
Keeps the beverage of your choice hot for over half an hour even with the lid off in 5C ( like today ) . 



So there you are now.
All you need next is a tea recommendation so you do.....

I can second that (the cup recommendation. The tea, you're on your own with themin, so you are). 

Beverage of your choice stays even hotter with the lid on, though, although admittedly it is not so easy to drink that way. I do find the lid on mine slightly odd to thread on to the cup, but I'm a Guzzi owner so there's no danger of me cross-threading it, right?

P.S. Also keeps cold drinks cold. But if the cold drink is beer, and you're going to throw the cup in your pannier and expect it to be all glorious several bumpity-bump miles later, you may be disappointed. To be fair, I may not have done the lid up tight, but even so, beer soaked bread rolls aren't all they are cut out to be.

Highlight the text of the link. Click on the hyperlink icon which brings up the link box, then click OK.
Well that's on a PC, no doubt more difficult on other devices.

But tea bags??Shocked
Proper loose leaf for me every time.

Seems like a brilliant product, not too expensive and very efficient. I am actually tempted to buy one for the BMW and leave it in the panniers with the lid screwed in.. ;) 

And how's retirement treating you, min?

My son bought me one last Christmas, or I'd never have bothered, but filled with ice cold water from the fridge it lives in the bikes tool bag and is very welcome on a blistering afternoon.
Cold white wine works well too, though we are just coming into the hot bovril season.
"Retirement" is rather a negative description I think, inferring going back somehow, I prefer the Spanish "Jubilado" which sums up my feelings nicely.

"Jubilado"

Is that "Lovely Jubbly" in English?

Jubilee ...
3 a period of remission from the penal consequences of sin, granted by the Roman Catholic Church under certain conditions for a year, usually at intervals of twenty-five years.

Jubilado ...
A period of drinking draught Guinness in front of a roaring fire and to hell with the penal consequences.

Jubbly ...
A modern classical reference with which I'm only slightly familiar, though I believe bubbles are involved. More research needed.

There may be a connection between the fact that it is illegal to die in Lanjaron, and the huge number of jubilados. Wherever the sun finds a way through the tall old houses and spills onto the pavement, you'll find some old codger on a rickety chair nodding in the sunshine and keeping one eye on the morning.
At three score and ten I'm a mere chicken.

A Jubbly was a tetrehedrally shaped ice lolly (if I have my geometry right?). They came in various flavours, but I remember the orange flavour as being the only one worth having.

They were also lovely, in my opinion, but I don't claim this as an explanation for the phrase "luvvly jubbly".

Where else on the interweb/facetube could a recommendation for a drinks container end up discussing Jubblys

Brilliant and long may it continue, a poor day just got a whole lot better

It is, I think, in large part because our leader runs a somewhat less than tight ship when it comes to 'moderating' this forum. If prodded with a stick, I suspect that our leader might (generously) offer that the atmosphere is, in fact, down to the self-moderation of the assembled participants. Either way, I agree, that it is a nice place to visit; for banter, genuinely useful technical assistance, and for surprising information on ironing boards. And, on occasion, home-made spray-booths.

Agreed. Even if I didn't have a Guzzi I'd stay here (if allowed of course).

I find that soaking showerheads and hoses in white wine vinegar removes the limescale so it does.
