Neither do I. My old commute was about 15 miles and I had a few long lights at the start so those dark and chilly mornings were made nicer by a wonderful brew.
I lost another mug a few months ago due to a weird bump and bounce over a man hole where my mug flew out and tumbled down the road at rush hour. Since then I have stuck to the dual thermos in the pannier. It used to be thermos and mug, so the second thermos was no big deal.
Not what you requested precisely.. but close, and it's saved my butt. My commutes are 15 miles one way, I do ever so adore good coffee (read as ground from beans, not cheap, yada yada yada). Button top seal, excellent heat retention properties (I've burned myself good a few times.. 2-3 hours after pouring the cup), and here's the kicker that they don't advertise.. the ring on the handle slides snugly onto the ends of most bicycle handlebars! The limitation: 13.5 oz's.

Have to admit, there was a cold day when I had a flat where I said, 'screw it, I'm going to be lazy.' and got some hot chocolate while they replaced the tube.
Well normally I make an attempt at changing the tube myself.
But IGHs make it a pain and I was a half mile from the bike shop...
If your favorite travel mug wont fit in your water bottle carrier you can bend the forward parts of the carrier. The width of the standard water bottles is small enough to fit in standard sized automotive cup holders, there are plenty of choices out there.

For tea, I like the PG Tips with some milk in it, or the Red Rose if I can find the Canadian version, not the kind they sell in the US...(it doesn't taste right, different blend). King Cole is another good one. I like to use the stainless steel hydro flask insulated bottle, the 21 oz fits perfect in bike water bottle holder.
