Yes I will take this with me to work! I love the sleek and classy look this travel mug has. It's 14 ounces- so almost two regular cups of coffee would fit inside. It does seem to keep your beverage pretty warm for a decent amount of time ; I add coffee creamer to my drink and my coffee still stayed at a nice “warmer” temperature for almost my whole 8 hour workday. My only request is that the maker use dishwasher friendly materials. You have to hand wash the cup and only the lid is top rack dishwasher safe.

I was so pleased to receive this TAL 14 oz mug! I have been using it for coffee at my desk at the office. The mug is sturdy and has a slightly textured finish where it is sage. The interior of the bug and rim are a brushed stainless steel finish. The handle and lid are made of a hard black plastic. I have a habit of wasting more cups of coffee due to them getting cold. Well not anymore! This mug works very well at keeping my coffee hot with the lid on. The coffee still takes longer to cool with the lid off. The lid appears to be mostly for the purpose of keeping the liquid hot. When the mug is full and the lid is on, the liquid can drip out around the sides of the lid, so it isn't totally spill-proof. If this mug was to be used in a vehicle it should be able to keep all of the liquid in with the lid on and the slider in place. The slider on the lid is easy to move with a thumb, which allows you to drink without removing the lid. Great product!
Elite Travel Mug
Such a good looking elite travel mug. The wood grain really looks stylish. Love the look of the stainless steel inside and it is well insulated. It does keep cold drinks cold for 18 hours and hot drinks hot for 8 hours. I did try them out and it worked. It holds as much drink as the larger taller cups. Lid has slide opening, so you can close it when you are not using it. It's a great cup!
Cleans easily & Keeps Cold longer
I got the TAL Boulder Mug because I feel more comfortable using a large, wide mug design when compared to the more slender, high thermal mugs on the market. I really like the fact that it is easy to clean because the lid removes completely. I don't need a brush to get inside when washing. The fact that its stainless steel helps keep the temperatures where you want them to be. I took it with me, filled with hot coffee when I went to physical therapy and two hours later, when I returned to the car, it was just as hot and fresh tasting as when I had first poured the coffee in. The 14 oz. mug states that it keeps liquids hot for 8 hours and cold for 18 hours. I found that after 7 hours, my coffee was merely warm, although I did not fancy the idea of drinking any coffee after 2 hours. But for keeping liquids cold, it is amazing! After 10 hours, my water was still icy cold! For me, the cold keeping is very important since I can fill it with iced tea, smoothies, and iced coffee. It does not leak and the top is secure, which is important when traveling. The big bonus for me is that it fits in my car's cup holder. Not only does it look great, but the features are great.
I was delighted to receive this TAL Wood 14oz Boulder Travel Coffee Mug for free from the Walmart Spark Reviewer program for my review of the product. I certainly am impressed by this travel mug! It is extremely well put together with a very real looking wood grain printed material that seems like it's going to be very durable for a long time to come. I love that it has a nice large plastic handle that is easy for me to hold and does not look cheap. This TAL Hydration Boulder Travel Mug holds 14 fluid ounces and made of double wall vacuum insulated stainless steel. It will keep your drink hot for eight hours or cold for eighteen hours. The splash proof lid is great for taking your coffee or tea in the great outdoors and in the car. The lid has a small opening for drinking that is revealed by a sliding closure and is top rack dishwasher safe. You'll need to wash the cup by hand though, to preserve that lovely wood looking finish. I noticed that there are more color and shape options, so be sure to check out all that TAL Hydration has to offer at Walmart.
THE TAL 14oz Boulder Mug in Slate is a nice size! The mug itself holds just the right amount of beverage. I tried it with a hot beverage. After 6 minutes with the lid off, the drink was still drinkably warm. With the lid on, any drink will stay HOT for the 8 hours stated on the label. Since I will only use this mug for tea, I did not try it for Cold drinks. But, with how it held the tea hot with the lid on and drinkably warm with it off, I would think that it would be the same for a cold drink as well.
Now, the drawback. Since there is no vent hole (you know that tiny hole at the top of the cover), the drink does not come out smoothly. That is the only negative I have for this mug.
Nice Size Mug
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when i first used
the "TAL" BOULDER MUG. It's a 14oz Stainless Steel mug
It is a very nice looking mug, black with stainless trim.
It is double wall vacuum insulated with an easy to grip
handle the lid has a slide opening for easy access
And the lid sets in the mud firmly.
You can put the lid in the dish washer TOP RACK only
The mug you hand wash with nothing abrasive.
The size is a little large to fit in some cup holders
but it does fit in the holders in my truck
It keeps cold drinks cold for hours but I found the hot drinks
didn't do as well only around 4 to 5 hours still pretty good
So it does a pretty good job with (hot and cold) drinks.
TAL Wood 14oz Boulder Travel Coffee Mug - I RATE 3 STARS!
I like the look and feel of this Mug! I decided to first see ease of use while driving by taking it with cold water inside for safety reasons in my car. I am concerned somewhat because the lid only grips the opposite side of the slide opening from which you are supposed to drink can possibly turn up or turn down by a slight push or touch near or on side where you sip from. I don't want anything HOT or COLD spilling out possibly while traveling. Also, in my old car I have just the standard cup holders and this definitely doesn't fit in it. I also timed both HOT & COLD with the lid and my drinks stayed HOT or COLD for at least 2 hours. No CONDENSATION with either temperature liquid. I am very happy with that result and for me personally I will only use my MUG when I am not driving . I actually used it this morning again for a great cup of HOT coffee that I enjoyed and it was really great not having to do the usual warming up my coffee or making a whole new cup because my coffee had gotten cold. Even with a 3 Star rating that I gave, I will still recommend this TAL Wood 14oz Boulder Travel Coffee Mug!
HOT, COLD AND SIZE
Love the look, the design and comfort handle, even the color (Slate) is great, but the TAL Boulder Mug didn't quite deliver on its promise.
To keep my drink "Hot for 8 HR" - The longest it kept my coffee between 180° and 100°F was 4 hours. A safe drinking temperature is below 140°. Under 100° and it was just a warm drink. The temperature actually dropped about 20°F every hour.
"Cold for 18 HR" - This was a different story. It kept my drink icy cold at 20°F. The insulated sides slowed my ice cubes from melting, there was no condensation on the outside, and I was still enjoying a cold (+/- 30°F) sip 6 hours after it had been poured. It might have stayed colder longer, but I finished my H₂O!
Size is a definite drawback - 14 ounces for a travel mug is on the small side. If you're looking for something to take you through the day, you'll need a bigger cup.
My thoughts - It does retain the heat (cold) more than long enough for you to enjoy those 14 ounces. If you refill your mug a couple of times, temperature and size won't really be a problem!!
Not so hot mug
I don't like to give negative reviews but I can give this TAL 14OZBldr Mug only two stars, one for style and the other because my husband like the fact the one has to suck the liquid out (no air hole) so the drink does not dribble on his shirt as he drives. Of course the reason for this mug is to keep coffee hot. I preheated the mug with boiling water and overheated the coffee in the microwave before putting it in the mug. When I anticipated enjoying my hot coffee three hours later it was barely warm. I want HOT coffee. The label states that it keeps hot drinks hot for 8 hours. Not so. Too bad, for it is an attractive mug that fits the car console perfectly. My husband likes his coffee just warm, so we will keep it for him.
