It could be used for iced tea, coffee, milk, lemonade, etc. The pitcher has a nice fitting lid.
The four mugs, cups, tumblers, whatever you want to call them, are "pinched" style, w the sides are pinched in to form a handy place for your hand to hold them comfortably. The four mugs were made by Celia Cole and are signed by her on the bottom. One is dated 12-5-95, the other three are dated 1-29-96. Each one has the circular stamp and a saying on the bottom. The sayings include - "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", "Time out for tea", "Tea time come and get it", and "Hello World I Love You". The mugs are approx. 4.25" tall.
