Carrying liquids from the source to the mouth isn't always an easy task. Kneeling down or using your hands isn't the best way to get a drink from the river. Cups have been used for thousands of years to easily carry food and drink, and are commonly used as decoration or in certain rituals. Ceramic cups are widely favored for their safe, non-toxic nature and their ability to carry hot liquids without breaking or leaching chemicals into the drink.
Can be found in cupboards in homes and offices.
