This is a great coffee mug. I ordered this for a friend for two reasons. One, great teacher. Two, dislikes being being given teacher gifts. I've been using another mug by Got Me Tipsy. It's great for any hot beverage. The glass of the mug insulates the hot liquid well and it's a nice sized coffee mug for those who like a large mug of coffee or tea. Even better that it is dishwasher safe.
