At Last! A BPA-Free, Dishwasher-Safe Thermal Travel Cup which Accommodates a Stainless Steel Straw!

And you can quote me: "It became something of a holy grail for me: I love me my stainless steel straws (which are by definition also BPA free) and I'd been looking for ages for a thermal tumbler or thermal mug (i.e. a travel mug or travel cup) which was a) BPA-free, and b) dishwasher safe, and c) could accommodate my stainless steel straws through its sip hole (many sippy holes are too narrow to accommodate a rigid straw). If it was wide enough to also accommodate my favorite tea strainer, so that I could brew my morning cup of tea (lapsang souchong, thank you very much) all the better. Here's the thing: it's crazy hard to find thermal travel mugs that are both BPA-free and dishwasher safe. In fact, it's hard to find any travel cup or travel mug that is dishwasher safe, period. "

It became something of a holy grail for me: I love me my stainless steel straws (which are by definition also BPA free) and I’d been looking for ages for a thermal tumbler or thermal mug (i.e. a travel mug or travel cup) which was a) BPA-free, and b) dishwasher safe, and c) could accommodate my stainless steel straws through its sip hole (many sippy holes are too narrow to accommodate a rigid straw). If it was wide enough to also accommodate my favorite tea strainer, so that I could brew my morning cup of tea (lapsang souchong, thank you very much) all the better.

Here’s the thing: it’s crazy hard to find thermal travel mugs that are both BPA-free and dishwasher safe. In fact, it’s hard to find any travel cup or travel mug that is dishwasher safe, period.

So now, after months and miles of searching, I have found the perfect travel tumbler: BPA-free and dishwasher safe, and it works with both my tea strainer and my stainless steel straws.

And, even better, it’s about half the price of many of the other travel cups out there!

The Bubba ‘Envy’ tumbler promises to keep your hot drinks hot for up to 3 hours (and cold drinks cold for up to 5 hours), and retails on Amazon for about $10.00. Such a bargain!

Combine this with these stainless steel straws (a 4-pack for $10.95 – that’s just $2.25 per straw), and you have the perfect travel beverage set up. (The reason for the straws even with warm liquid like your morning coffee or tea is two-fold: first, it’s safer to drink from a straw when behind the wheel because you never have to tip your head back to get to the liquid at the bottom; second, it helps keep your teeth from getting so stained as you aren’t filtering your coffee or tea through your front teeth.)

And, if you want to be exactly like me (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) you can start your morning with some wonderful Lapsang Souchong tea. If you’ve never tried it, you owe it to yourself to try it at least once – it has a wonderful, smoky flavor!
