A couple of years ago, I said to my son that I was fed-up of never being able to drink a hot cup of tea. Why couldn’t I drink a hot cup of tea? Because my hands shake too much due to an Essential Tremor..
After spending time searching the internet we found some silicone straws which have several benefits:
- They are reusable
- Possible to use them with hot drinks! You can use them at home or take them when you go out. I usually have one in my handbag when I go out.
Through experience I have now realised that it is a good idea when going out to ask for hot drinks in a mug rather than a cup. If the cup is placed correctly on the table it is possible to put your straw into the mug and drink your tea without having to touch the mug at all. Therefore, you are less likely to spill it.
