Product Inspirations – Travel Mug (SM-YAE48)


It’s National Hot Tea Month, and we love our vacuum-insulated Travel Mug (SM-YAE48) for keeping our freshly brewed green tea hot and delicious!

The Travel Mug (SM-YAE48) is stylish, versatile and convenient. It rests securely in most car cup holders, taking up minimal space while maximizing the capacity of the mug, which can hold up to 16 ounces. The leak-proof design makes it ideal for carrying in a bag, backpack or purse. And the unique lid is designed to flip open completely using a two-step process that minimizes spatters. The drinking area is designed to comfortably fit the contours of your face and the air vent in the spout is designed to let beverages flow out smoothly.

The Travel Mug also features Zojirushi’s superior vacuum-insulation technology for outstanding heat and cold retention along with the hygienic electro-polished SlickSteel® interior, which repels odors and stains. The wide mouth opening makes it easy to fill and clean, and the entire mug can be washed in warm water and mild dish detergent.

These features make the Travel Mug perfect for taking beverages with you where you might be going. Morning coffee and tea stays hot during your commute. Cold drinks such as flavored waters retain their temperature and taste throughout the day in the Travel Mug.


Brewing sencha tea with a Zojirushi Water Boiler & Warmer

We particularly love this mug for drinking hot Japanese Sencha green tea. To make Sencha green tea, start with water heated to 175°F. Our water boilers are great for heating water to the exact temperature, but heating in a kettle on the stovetop works as well. When the water is at the right temperature, place the tea leaves in a pot or large cup. Be careful not to brew the tea with water at too high of a temperature, as the tea will become bitter. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and let them steep for one to two minutes. While the tea is brewing, swish hot water in the Travel Mug to preheat the inside. This little trick will help the mug to keep your drink hot longer. When the tea leaves have finished steeping, pour the strained tea into the Travel Mug, and you’re ready to go!

Our favorite recipe for brewing Sencha is on our website so feel free to check out.

The Travel Mug comes in four beautiful colors: Lime Green, Cherry Red, Dark Cocoa and Stainless and can be purchased on or at your favorite specialty retailer.

We hope you enjoy using it as much as we do. And don’t forget to pin a photo of your travel mug with #ZoGo!

Stainless Mug (SM-LA36/48/60)


We love our elegant new Stainless Mug (SM-LA36/48/60)!

These sleek mugs are ultra-lightweight and are perfect for carrying in a bag or purse, no matter where you’re going. They come in 12, 16 and 20 ounce capacities so you can take as little as one-and-a-half cups to as much as two-and-a-half cups of your favorite beverage with you.

We’ve designed these mugs to be sophisticated and versatile. They come in four colors—Deep Cherry, Rose Gold, Turquoise Blue and Navy—to suit any style, and can be used for both hot and cold beverages. A one-and-a-half-inch wide mouth accommodates full-sized ice cubes and ensures that the mug can be filled easily.

We’ve also designed these mugs to be durable, using high-quality 18/8 stainless steel and Zojirushi’s superior vacuum insulation technology. By removing the air between the outer and inner layers of the stainless steel, heat is blocked from transferring through it, greatly minimizing the temperature change of your beverage. Your drinks stay hot or cold for hours.

The interior features an easy-to-clean nonstick coating and all areas that come into contact with beverages are BPA-free, ensuring that these mugs are safe and hygienic.

The twist-open lid covers the sipping area to maintain cleanliness and the removable plastic mouth ring makes for a more comfortable drinking experience.


Two special gaskets secure the lid on the top and the bottom so that liquids don’t seep out. The lid only assembles when the stopper gasket has been attached correctly, which ensures no accidental leaks and helps to prevent the loss of parts. Cleaning is just as simple, as all pieces can be hand washed in mild dish detergent and warm water.

Elegant, lightweight and practical, the Zojirushi Stainless Mug is perfect for every day and every need.
