Not my cup of tea=it's not my preference (ie: something I don't like even if you do).

Getting a cup of coffee= getting your feet wet in a new job/experience where the expectations are that you may not quite ready to keep the job permanntly, but are getting the experience that will help if/when you are ready for the job full time.

Both players have looked good so far--and have done exactly what they were re-called for, to provide speed and energy--but it's only two games and Mitchell especially is probably not here for the long haul. Hagelin, on the other hand, has done well with every challenge (improved every year in college, came in and played well last spring for Hartford, had a good camp/pre-season) since he was drafted. If he can continue at this pace, he should and probably will remain in the lineup.
