My tea cosy has arrived from Canada — and it’s sooo beautiful! (See ebay picture above.) And it fits my tea pot!!! Wheee! At first I put it on the pot the wrong way around and wondered at the overall bad fit. Then I found a sample of the material used in the inside of the cosy with a note explaining that it “reflects the heat back into the teapot and acts as a built-in hot pad which protects your table.” Ahhh! Light-bulb moment! 🙂
In case you’re wondering: I got the tea cosy from Come4t.
