The Best Travel Mug for Traveling Music Teachers

An entire blog post on the thermos that will protect your beverage, because you must have hot caffeine

by Lara Levitan

When work requires you to spend lots of time in a car, a few things are essential: a respectable stream of music and/or podcasts, functional heating and cooling, and perhaps most importantly, a damn good travel mug.

Piano Power teacher Andrew Doney has discovered a mug so great that his girlfriend is going to “get rid” of him if he mentions it again, a thermos so impressive we had to let you know about it.

From Andrew:

“I literally can’t talk about this thermos enough. It’s amazing.

A few months back, I emailed the number one worldwide authority on drinking tea while driving to music lessons: Abraham Levitan. My question was this: How do I drive around in the dead of winter, for eight hours, and have hot tea the whole night without going to Starbucks?

He was stumped, but I did some research and found the answer: The Thermos Stainless Steel King 40 Ounce Beverage Bottle.

The first test was a Saturday, when I filled up my 40 oz. thermos at 7:30 a.m. This thing sat in my car all day, in 20 degree weather. I poured my last cup at 5 p.m. and… steaming hot tea. STEAMING.

Buying this thermos should literally be part of the Piano Power onboarding process. I have a lot of days where I don’t have time to stop for hot caffeine, and those days used to be a bummer.”

There you have it, folks. The travel mug that puts all other travel mugs to shame.

Teachers, what other survival tips can you offer for long hours spent in cars?
