Best Mugs for Avoiding Tea/Coffee Stains

Hi Everyone!

I am in the market for new mugs/tea cups. I like a porcelain set but in the past they stained very quickly from tea/coffee and were hell to clean! Any advice on a great brand or material of mugs that will be long-lasting and not stain so much?

Thanks!

How about clear thick-ish glass? I use one for tea (two cups a day) and no stains! Ikea carries them. Bodum has nice double-walled coffee mugs if you are feeling more fancy!

Hard water can be a culprit. I noticed less staining of coffee and tea implements when I switched to filtered water.

A little bit of bleach will remove the stain easily. Just wash the cup,well afterwards.

I've had good luck with pottery ones. With some looking, you can find ones that look "more delicate" rather than "more homey", if that's your style preference. Just make sure it is made with a food-safe glaze.

Of course, you could always go for black! ;-)
