Tea cozy

Over at the Teashop we are thoroughly enjoying this early spring!  With one of our Teashop girls graduating high school being able to start spring cleaning out in the yard is going to be a great help. But as a born and raised Missourian we know that Missouri likes to maintain the element of surprise. Yesterday, I was cleaning up my yard.  Today, I am tucked inside bundled back up reaching for my hot cup of green tea.
Chilly days remind us how much more enjoyable hot tea is when it stays hot. For life-long tea drinkers there are two reasons a good tea cozy is super important.

First, most of us like our tea either hot or iced – lukewarm is not so good.  And microwaving a cold mug of tea does change the flavor and alter the brew.  Since the late 19th century era keeping your tea hot with a tea cozy was simple and it still is today.  Green Tea is by far the growing trend in the tea world and green tea is much more challenging to keep hot.  Green tea leaves unfurl and brew at a much lower temperature then black tea so the brew tea starts off much cooler to begin with.  Covering your teapot with a cozy allows you to enjoy all that good green tea at the nice hot temperature.

British Tea CozyThe other good reason to choose a tea cozy is our custom designer fabrics and trims.  We have our tea cozies hand made by local artisans.  Brenda chooses designer fabrics and trims – which become quite a centerpiece for your kitchen and dining area.  Yet several are kitchen-whimsical or unusual like the camouflage.

Starting this week we are celebrating with a March Madness sale!  20% Off of all cozies and snuggles.  Follow us on FB as we post our tea cozies.  If you see one that fits your kitchen, office, or personality – send us a message and we can save it or ship it to you!  Remember most are one of a kind !
