It's probably psychological
WHY IS IT that your favourite beverage always tastes better when drunk from your favourite mug?
I'm betting that just about all of you have a favourite cup or mug for your favourite brew; you know what I mean - that mug (or china cup if you happen to be posh!) which is always the one you reach for when having a hot drink - and woe betide anyone else who uses it!
I have one mug which I use for everything hot - tea, coffee and the odd hot chocolate. Strangely, f I want a cold drink of water or milk or a coke then I will use a glass and it doesn't matter which one. It seems that the choice of mug only matters when it's a hot drink.
This, of course, only applies when we are at home. If we eat out or visit friends then it doesn't seem to matter what the cup or mug is we enjoy it anyway. Maybe it's something to do with the comfort of the familiar.
When we are in our own familiar environment at home then we want familiar routines and things around us so we stick to the same cup or mug possibly out of a subconscious need to feel secure in our own little world.
Strange beings, people, eh?
