Sasquatch Tea Co.

Kuksa | Survival Mug

$27.99

Eating and drinking receptacles are an essential part of life. And we wanted something that was going represent the Sasquatch way of life. You might be sipping some hot Sasquatch Tea under the stars on the Appalachian Trail or eating Froot Loops in your camper, we don’t mind, we just wanted something that was going to get the job done and do it right! That’s where the Kuksa comes in! The Kuksa is a traditional, almost sacred, hand carved mug from a single piece of hardwood that has been used by hikers and bushcrafters all over the world for centuries.

In order to make sure we respected the tradition we partnered with Überlen, a company out of Bonners Ferry, Idaho who abides by the same American values, has the same affinity for the outdoors, and produces only the highest quality of products.

  • Includes full grain leather lanyard and metal carabiner
  • Capacity: *Can Vary. (approx. 7-8 fl. oz)

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

These guidelines are to help ensure maximum longevity. Like any natural wood product (i.e. cutting boards, knife scales, etc.), if you treat your kuksa right, it’ll serve you well on many adventures!

1. HAND WASH and DRY BEFORE INITIAL USE. Just good practice for anything that’s been handled and packaged.

2. OIL REGULARLY. Your hand’s natural oils help, too. Dry wood has a propensity to crack and split over time, so keep it conditioned. Remember, dish soaps strip these oils.

3. NO EXTREME TEMPS. Including microwaved, dishwasher, and boiling liquids. Can you use your cup for hot coffee or tea? Absolutely! Just let the boiling liquid sit a few minutes before pouring. High temperatures can potentially fatigue the wood, and eventually, over time, cause it to crack.
