It’s National Tea Day on Saturday here in the UK (we really like tea!). What better way to celebrate than by picking up a new mug to enjoy your morning cuppa? Here’s some kawaii mugs to choose from.
These animal mugs at Firebox have cute little ears sticking up and you can choose from a panda, cat, bear or fox. They’re a little larger than a standard mug so great for those of you who drink a lot of tea (or coffee!).
If those animals are a bit too basic for you, how about a narwhal? This mug is from Paperchase‘s new Kawaii Kool collection and I love its happy face and rainbow horn. Fun fact: the narwhal’s horn is actually a tooth!
Magical girls will love this sweet Little Twin Stars mug with pastel colours and stars. There are two designs to choose from and you can buy them from Sanrio Japan (requires forwarding service)
Tea for…one? If you like to use a teapot for a proper cup of tea but only want one cup, Rilakkuma has you covered with this mini teapot and mug set at ARTBOX. The teapot stacks on top of the mug for easy storage – and there’s a matching Korilakkuma set too.
I haven’t played the hilarious game yet but Detective Pikachu is so kawaii! If you’d enjoy having him search for clues on the breakfast table, this cute mug is available from the Japanese Pokemon Center. You can also order it through Japan Stuffs.
