A small battery in the base of a glass or mug runs a slow agitator inside the cup. Like a blender but slow and safe enough to have a spoon or finger in there.

       You could use a magnet coated in plastic, as is done in chem labs. The base contains another magnet turned by a motor, or a series of magnetic coils.

       Or, with the coated magnet, simply hold the cup still and let the Earth rotate.

       I do like to keep the trub in my tea in suspension (+)

       //what drinks need continual stirring ?//   

       Malaysian jelly drinks might. See link.

       Anything made from a powder. Instant hot cider has a tendency to precipitate whilst slowly consumed, which this cup would reduce.

       Trub? "Trub is one of the largest municipalities of Switzerland .... located in the Emmental region."   

       Emmental? So is trub some kind of cheese? In your tea?   

       Back in the good old days of the three-martini lunch and highballs in the afternoon, drinks with ice in them were kept strirred up with a thing called a swizzle stick (to prevent taking a sip off the top and getting nothing but ice water (a sobering thought (hah!))). I recall seeing several gadgets for automatic swizzle sticks. Let me Google.....nope, not finding.   

       In your tea?

       trub is brewing sediment and, by implication, the fines in tea.

       // fines in tea //   

       Is that like taxes on tea? Because those don't go well, as I recall.

       Oh, I dunno. It worked, didn't it? We finally got you to accept independence.
MaxwellBuchanan, Dec 03 2010
  

       //We finally got you to accept independence.// That was part of the long-term plan to defeat the Germans in 1918, and again in 1945, and the Russians in 1991. In fact, the plan is still working: to this day, the Americans supply the British nuclear deterrent.

       Shut up, [mp]. By now, there may be Americans who can read, you know. Unlikely, but possible.

       It gets better.   

       Forseeing the rise of China, the British planted, in 1947, the seeds of an atomic arms race right on the Middle Kingdom's doorstep, to hold them back a little. And the Balfour declaration was amazingly prescient: it actually foresaw the need to thwart Iraqi & Iranian nuclear ambitions.   

       Only one thing worries me: what was the future threat which the South African nuclear capability was supposed to counter? Where's Hari Seldon when you need him?

       He's quite happy, and safe, and helping us with our enquiries.
