I steep my tea in a contigo autoseal and then pour into a teacup. It's not traditional, but it works awesome if you pour small amounts into the cup at a time.
I have one of these and it's worked great for me for the past year or so. I throw it in my backpack, on the seat of my car, wherever, and it has yet to leak. It keeps your coffee warm for a solid amount of time too. My only problem with it is that you really need to clean the lid well to get that 'old coffee smell' out of it. (which I deeply loathe)
I really like this thermos. I just brew my tea in there and add to a tea cup as necessary so my tea is hot on demand.
Double-wall vacuum-insulated mugs. I barely drink tea if it's in a regular mug, since the tea is just going to get cold anyway by the time I'm halfway through. Particularly when it's during colder times of the year, which is when I'd be drinking tea anyway.
I think this Timolino mug is the winner. There are bigger ones, though I think it's better to do small amounts so you can get multiple uses out of the same leaves without having to go to the bathroom all the time.
You can use regular travel mugs too (I'll vote for the Contigo), by brewing in a teapot and just pouring everything into the mug. This also helps with the "it's too hot when it's just brewed and the vacuum insulation keeps it that way" issue by letting things cool down while in the teapot. Teabags directly in the mug work too, of course.
Teapot warmers are nice too (a candle placed under a teapot), and look pretty classy, since you get an adorable candle underneath. But vacuum insulation will do pretty much the same thing without using up candles.
I have this one as well. Very happy with it.
