Matching Tea and Coffee to Your Activity with Ecletticos

What’s on your schedule for the day? Ecletticos can go with you for almost everything. But you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the right drink to complement what you’re doing first. These coffee and tea pairings based on your activity can all be enjoyed right out of our handcrafted mugs and cups.

 

Journaling — Chamomile Tea

Writing in a journal calms the mind, so calm your body as well with a nice cup of chamomile. Not only will it help you relax into the groove of writing, it’ll also help settle your thoughts enough so you can just let everything flow out onto the page. The Nepal Coffee and Tea Mug, with its own strainer and lid, is the perfect choice for this one—you can brew, take out the loose tea, and drink without ever getting up.

 

Chilling with the Furbabies — Chai Latte

Our pets can bring joy and a little sass to our lives, so match their spirit with a bit of spice. With a chai latte, you’ll get the caffeine you need to keep up with the dog that loves to play tug, and the kick from the cinnamon, ginger, and pepper will give you enough pep to match your kitten’s attitude. Pick a mug with a lid, like the Katla Coffee Mug, to keep any stray spills from reckless pets at bay.

 

Camping — Dark Roast Coffee

Days out at the campground or in the woods can be pretty tiring, so make sure you’re ready for anything by enjoying a mug of dark roast coffee when you get up. You won’t be left dragging when it comes time to start a campfire, make s’mores, and stay up late telling ghost stories. Use the Røros Stein for a stylish option with a natural wood handle that’ll keep you feeling connected to the earth.

 

Daydreaming by the Lake — Dalgona Coffee

Match your swirling daydreams and gentle waves with a dreamy whipped dalgona coffee. The light-as-a-cloud drink will keep your imagination drifting away across the water and beyond. This pairing takes a bit of prep, though. Before you leave home, whip together equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water to stiff peaks. Then, pour a cup of hot milk into your mug and top it with a few tablespoons of your whipped dream. Use the transparent Mount Fuji Glass Cups and be inspired by milk and coffee cream tumbling together.

 

Picnicking — Sun Tea

Before heading out on a picnic to enjoy the weather, embrace the sun by making tea with it. Put a few bags of your preferred tea into a mason jar, fill the jar with water, and let it sit in the sun for a few hours. Then, just throw the entire jar into your picnic basket, and pour it into your mug when you’re ready to drink. For an extra perky drink, bring along some lemonade and make Arnold Palmers. The Topo Tea Set, with its handled carrying case, will make bringing your sun tea along and serving it a total breeze.

Sipping in Style in Small Spaces

There's a popular notion that a small space means you can't have nice things or that the options are extremely limited. This just isn't true. You don't have to forego quality and style to save space. My first rule of downsizing was that everything had to be, at the very least, dual-purpose. That meant that the mugs I decided to keep had to be used for something other than sipping coffee or tea when I wasn't sipping coffee or tea.
