A little ‘sweater’ for your teapot keeps the water hotter while you brew and while you sip. The pretty ruffled version was designed for our LYS Tour several years ago while the plain fellow is a perennial favorite. Choose a traditional tweed or a modern self-striping yarn in a color that won’t show the drips. What a thoughtful gift.
Besides being darn cute, a tea cozy is a very practical item. It’ll insulate your teapot so your water stays at the optimum steeping temperature longer. Then it’ll keep your brew warm ’til you’re ready for the next cup.
Also included is the ‘How to Brew a Decent Cup of Tea’ tutorial. If you follow a few guidelines, you can easily serve up a satisfying cuppa, time after time.
