How does a cup of hot tea have more thermal energy than a warm kettle?

you are asking 'hot' teacup vs 'warm' kettle. If the universe were 'warm', it would have more thermal energy than a hot' teacup, regardless of the temperature - thermal energy - of the teacup, or it would not exist from 'burning' up. the kettle and the teacup sizes must be defined before the thermal energy can be determined, as well as the specific temperatures involved. doveshawk.
