I’ve been pining for a good liquid holster for a while. My brother has a great one – very thermos-like, with a screw-top lid and tiny cup that screws on over it. After seeing E in Seattle, and asking her a million questions about her container, I made an over-educated decision. Here’s E’s own words about it.
The JoeMo XL holds 16 oz. and best of all – it has a tea strainer built in. Since I don’t drink a lot of coffee (not that I don’t want to – it’s just that I hallucinate), but I do drink a lot of tea, this is PERFECT. Coincidentally, my eternal-life-mate Jason is also a tea drinker, so I bought two.
We made lapsang souchong in our JoeMos last night and watched a movie. This morning we both made tea before going off to our respective jobs (Jason off to the train, me off to the desk).
So far, so good. The only downside I read about is the complicated top – but the instructions that came with the little guy said that you can pop the top apart to clean, which is true. I’ll also try not to add sugary or milky substances (like sugar or milk) so its less likely to get funky.
1. I don’t know what to call this specific object. It’s not a mug. It’s not a ThermosTM. It’s not a cup or a jug or a bullet. I don’t want to call it a JoeMoe.
2. I prefer to think of it as JoEMO, because it enables me to drink lapsang souchong and listen to Jimmy Eat World.
3. I can’t talk about the brand and not help thinking about Joe Mohan, whom I refer to as JoMo in my head (and occasionally in a blog post).
