Genius is rarely acknowledged in our lifetime.
For my birthday, I asked Robin for something she'd never heard of -- a tea cozy. At first she didn't know what it was so I explained: a cozy is an insulated cloth dome that covers your teapot while you're drinking and keeps the tea hot. Robin, without experience or evidence, disputed the efficacy of this ancient kitchen tool. And she mocked me for requesting one, saying the whole idea is silly.
Well... it turns out I was right: a tea cozy DOES work, fabulously in fact. How? Science. Consult an engineer if you need convincing. Plus it's a handsome addition to any kitchen, don't ya think?
Yes, providing the tea cosy is made of the right material it will insulate extremely well. Some tea cosies however are merely decorative and don't really help keep a tea pot warm at all.ReplyDelete
Of course a tea cozy works fabulously! We have several of them in use! xxxReplyDelete
I do not own a tea cozy, because I do not own a teapot. If the engineers would put their minds to creating a teapot spout that doesn't drip down the front and spill everywhere, I might be convinced to buy another!ReplyDelete
That is a lovely print on your cozy. Good pick, Robin!
They've invented teapots that don't spill. I recognize that some do but mine doesn't. Consider trying one that doesn't. It's fun to use a teapot.Delete
Gosh, we've had one of these for years. Plus we even have something like this for Robert's pousse cafe.ReplyDelete
A sign of how ahead of the rest of us you are!Delete
A tea cosy is SUPER good at keeping the tea hot!! I use one all the time for my pot.ReplyDelete
I didn't even know there was such a thing as tea cozy. What a fun idea! That blue one is adorable.ReplyDelete
That is truly one of the loveliest and most elegant tea cozies that I have ever seen.ReplyDelete
