I purchased this tankard back in August of 2021, and have continued to drink my coffee from it every single morning since. It is truly the finest piece of pottery that I own, in terms of shape, color, texture, and craftsmanship.
I adore how it feels in my hands - I can hold it in both without my fingers meeting - perfect for hand-warming on cool mornings. I hand wash it, and it looks as good as it did when I first unwrapped it.
I should probably buy a spare, because I would be fairly heart-broken were I ever break this one. Perhaps it's odd to be so attached to a "cup", but this tankard is proof that a utilitarian object can also be considered a work of art.

English Tankard Wonderful Purchase

I own two of these beautifully crafted tankards. Both are my "go-to's" for tea and coffee at both work and home. They are well worth the investment!

Beautiful, great product!

I had long wanted to order the English Tankard after watching Jon drinking his tea from one during the livestreams. When I went to order one I found it was sold out but I requested a notification when they were available and, as promised, I received the notice and placed the order. It came today (one day early!), securely packaged and even nicer than I expected. the tankard is such a nice size and weight, plus I can make a decent size tea and it keeps tea warm a long time. Thanks very much for a smooth transaction and an excellent product!

Great mug and customer service!

I bought two of these for my 9th anniversary, since pottery is the traditional gift. I love the form and function of them. Unfortunately, one of them had the handle break off while my wife was carrying it. I suspect it may have been damaged or had a hairline crack in shipping. I emailed Townsends and they sent me another, no questions asked. I love it, and they won a customer for life.
