Poppies have symbolized many things throughout history, including sleep, remembrance, peace and rebirth. In Greek mythology, poppies were the sacred symbols of different goddesses and characters, such as Demeter, Hypnos, Nix and Thanatos. Their symbolism is also why Dorothy and her friends fall asleep in a field of poppies in The Wizard of Oz—because of their close ties to sleep. Poppies are used on Veteran's Day and Memorial Day as a symbol to remember soldiers who have fallen and to honor their bravery.
This mug is a beautiful way to exemplify all of these things and more. If you know someone who adores poppies, this mug and some of our delicious tea is a lovely gift for them! Included with the mug is an infuser and a topper to ensure that the tea stays toasty warm!
