Perhaps I am a little over-the-top about tea. I’ll accept that potential personality challenge; because life just isn’t that exciting unless you are over-the-top about something. Right?
I have come to the conclusion that there is enough information about tea for me to research for two lifetimes. Tea types, tea health benefits, tea accessories. Tea accessories…the very thought tickles me. Especially when I came across tea pot and tea cup cosies for sale. Yes, the original beer cosy has been upgraded to Bourgeoisie status. From cute little old ladies to chic business women are now purchasing and using the newest trend in home decor…tea cosies.
Here are a few that you may want to add to your wish list of tea accessory “must haves”.
Hand Knit Mug Cozy
Stylish, trendy and practical! This hand knit cabled wrap by Julee-Que is made from a cotton blend yarn that hugs the generously sized 10 ounce mug. The wrap fastens with a rectangular etched silver button made in Italy and slips on/off the mug for ease of washing. Believe it or not, the mug is included which makes this a great buy!
Julee-Que offers this mug cosy in a variety of colors, each displaying a distinctly different button for closure. This item guarantees no more burned hands from hot tea!
Hand Knit Tea Pot Cosy
Until a few days ago, I had never heard of a tea pot cosy. Apparently, I am the only remaining person in the Western Hemisphere who has not. Needless to say, I was excited to discover this hand knitted and felted Tea Cosy and Hotpad by Delightful Knits. This 16 inch, two cup teapot fits snugly inside the Tea Pot Cosy made with 100% wool Lambs Pride yarn. Additionally, the flowers, Acorns, and Maple leaves were all hand crocheted.
This set is completed with an adorable hotpad measuring 7 1/2 inches point to point. The hotpad is great for keeping fine surfaces from being marred. Not to mention it helps insulate the entire pot – keeping your warm brew warm.
This is a perfect bridal shower or wedding gift for tea lovers. Visit Delightful Knits – there are several tea cosy sets to choose from.
Embroidered Tea Pot Cosy
My last find of the week is from Hughes and Nordberg. This beautiful tea cosy was handcrafted using vintage hand embroidery material. Measuring 22cm high by 32.5 cm wide, this cosy will fit most standard sized tea pots making any tea time extra special.
The cosy is loose lined with a made to measure insulating layer that can be washed separately. The embroidered cosy cover should be cleaned by hand with care.
Visit Hughes and Nordberg to discover the other treasures found in their shop. I guarantee you will love this little shop.
I hope you visit each of these shops. Maybe even purchase a cosy or two. Just make sure you return and comment about how much you love your new cosies as you lead the pack of hip and trendy tea drinkers.
