True stories with a twist!

When we went down for breakfast we faced the following gadget wrapped around the tea pot:IMG_0687What a charming and quaint addition to every day life: the tea cozy  It struck me as unusual from the way we use or see back home. I love the warm, protective, wrapped up tea pot cover that appeared on our table every morning.

  2. I can’t believe that I haven’t been using my tea cosy ! Am off to find it now.. thank you so much for such a delicious reminder !!!

  3. Gosh, I haven’t seen a tea cosy in use for a while. My Grandma used to use one. I like ’em.

  4. Well isn’t that better than the cold, metallic thermos. Nice.

  5. That is good to see – The tea cozy brings back memories

  6. This one is charming! I have never used one…and I have no idea why. I guess it was never particularly introduced in my upbringing, but I’m thinking how much my granddaughters would love this. I’m so glad you shared. Maybe I’ll find a cute one somewhere!

      A shop specializing in tea might be a good place to look, or perhaps google “tea cozies.” I think your grandmother would be delighted with the gift.

    • Great idea; it’s probably one of the few articles you could think of that they don’t already
      A shop devoted to tea and its accessories would be a good place to start, or google “tea cozies.” Good Luck.

  7. I use a tea cozy I bought in London years ago when we lived there. Enjoy your visit. One of my favorite places.

  8. We don’t drink much hot tea on the Gulf. If we did, the cosy would be swell.

  9. Tea cozies are an essential part of properly brewed tea. Also the milk goes in the cup, then you pour the hot tea into it. Sugar is optional and is added after the tea is poured.

  10. Cozy and…it suits that pot to a tee!

  12. Ah, the tea cozy. I little bit of charm from yester-year.

  13. We do need to get back to those little things in life….a bit of whimsy for tea and smiles. 😊
