What is a Travel Mug

A drink to start your day depends on your personal preference. However, if you are in a hurry and have no time to enjoy your favorite beverage just as you love it, you can take it with you in a travel mug. A travel mug was designed to retain your drink temperature for several hours. How does it work? A vacuum insulation between inner and outer layers of the item keeps the beverage hot or cold. At the same time, the housing doesn't change its temperature, which means you won't burn your fingers even if tea or coffee in the mug is piping hot. On a travel, at work, in your car, a thermal coffee mug will let you enjoy your loved drink wherever you are!

If you are interested in travel and to-go drinkware with larger capacity, please look through our thermoses review to choose the one to your liking.
