- Is there a scientific reason why a cold drink in a mug is wrong?
Receptacles for cold drinks have traditionally been thinner than for hot. When raising the drink to your mouth, the rim thickness and indeed the weight of the receptacle, combined with the temperature is always something of a shock to the system.
In other words, wrong indeed.Posted 3 years agoscudMember
In theory, and i think this is right, all drinks should actually taste better being drunk out of a receptacle with a thin lip, as you take in more air with the liquid and this in turn increases your ability to obtain the full flavour of something. This is why tea is better out of a fine bone china cup and why wine or drink tasters “slurp” as they drink to take in more air with it (but i might be wrong!)Posted 3 years ago
