Vaso = glass Taza = non glass cups/mugs

That’s my thinking But I imagine if you use the wrong one your message would likely still come across.

I’d go with vaso for anything glass. Taza for ceramic, plastic, metal or something with a handle.

La taza, feminine noun, used for a container with a handle: Sirve mi café en la taza, por favor

El vaso, masculine noun, used for a container without a handle: Sirve mi leche en el vaso, por favor

La copa, feminine noun, used for a container with a base: Sirve mi vino en la copa, por favor

Also use taza for cooking. As in a cup of flour.
