I bought this cup several months back while in Puerto Vallarta and have been saving it as a gift for my Mom in Law. BUT since she has declined the last few invitations to visit, I have grown a bit fond of it. I enjoyed a nice cup of coffee in it this morning. My friend Patty Gironda of (HomeAtLast .com) makes her own coffee and I had it this morning- very good too I must say. Anyway back to the cup. I thought it would be a nice tea cup, but I think it is too bulky for tea and it just feels more like a coffee cup, so sorry Mom- but I think I'm going to keep it!
