Sumptuous Tea Cozy

100_0445a

I don’t even like tea, but Leah makes the most gorgeous, flower-covered teapot cozies, and I have coveted them like mad.  And actually, I have a lot of teapots, because I keep thinking one day I will learn to love tea and then I’ll be ready.  So when lovely Leah blogged about how she makes her tea cozies, with a whole excellent photo tutorial and everything, I dropped everything and made one, too, and then I bought some tea.  I am determined.  I will learn to love tea, just for this.

I mean, really.  Isn’t that the most sumptuous thing ever?  Don’t you just feel like having a wee cuppa right now?  I know I do.  And maybe a little jam bun to go with it, and it’ll be a little damp outside, probably raining, and there will be a cozy fire in the grate, and a good friend across the table, and lots of warm chitchat and knitting.  All this can be found here!  Leah, thank you for sharing your pattern.

    1. Chamomile is nice, I will admit that, especially when I have the sniffles. :)

  9. Leah's was the first tea cozy pattern I read that finally made sense to me. Yours is just super cute, love those flowers. I like a good Japanese green tea, with toasted rice, like hojicha, or gen maicha. Kind of has a nutty flavor. Or just good old English Breakfast. Anyway, go ahead and put some coffee in that pot. I won't tell :)

  10. Beautiful tea cosy! I love a cup of tea and I think it tastes even better when it's from a teapot covered by a tea cosy! It makes having a cup of tea making more of an event! Hope you get to like it so you can use and enjoy your lovely tea cosy!

  16. That really is beautiful and pretty flowers set it off a treat. However sadly I also can't stand tea....... maybe I'll have to buy a coffee pot?

  17. Of course you whipped one up just like that because that's what you do best. Creating like crazy and always something fabulous. I don't like regular tea, but love all sorts of organic, green and white teas. How can you not love a teapot that's dressed so gorgeously!???! Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  19. Now this has made my day! Your cosy is absolutely adorable!! I'm so glad you liked the pattern hon. Even if you don't like tea, it will look pretty on a shelf somewhere. If I am completely honest, even though I have more teapots and cosies than any woman needs in a lifetime, most of my cuppas are made with a teabag and a mug. I always plan to make them properly and sit and enjoy the process but normally it's a quick cuppa, standing at the bench while doing other jobs.
