The eight cups are all rated out of five, but we've also picked three as the:

Travel cups: how we reviewed them
We put 300ml of boiling water in each of the eight cups and left them in an unheated car with the ambient temperature at a chilly 5C. We then measured the temperature of the water in each cup after 30 minutes, one hour and finally at two hours.
