Tea cozies are a useful item to have in your kitchen. A tea cozy is a protective cover for a tea pot, traditionally made of fabric. It wraps a pot, keeping the liquid warm inside. Their original use precedes the creation of vacuum flutes as a way of keeping cold liquids warm. The earliest versions were padded inserts which could be taken out and washed easily. For tea drinking, these simple devices were essential.
In today's world cozies for tea are designed to be stylish accessories. Many are brightly colored and comfortable to wear. A tea cozy can be worn during any season and as often as you like. Some even have an attached towel holder and zipper pocket to keep your tea safe from flying spits. Other tea cozies are made with a mix of materials, such as leather, cotton, and other textiles, which may be more comfortable to wear, but also keep the beverage warmer.
A tea cozy is made from many different materials, depending on how much care you want to put into caring for it. If you prefer to be able to keep your tea warm without having to re-heat it yourself, you may want one made with fabric. These can either be slip on covers that can easily be removed or blankets which can be folded up and put under the cozies for storage. If you prefer the convenience, there are disposable tea cozies which you simply heat up and use when you are ready to drink your tea.
There are many reasons to use tea cozies. During the cold winter months, having a portable cup of hot tea is very convenient, especially if you don't want to sit in a comfortable chair. Tea cozies are also great to use if you plan to travel. Being able to take them with you can help keep your hot beverage warm while you enjoy a comfortable seat to enjoy it. There are even travel bags made specifically for use with tea cozy bags so that your beverage will always be prepared fresh when you need it to be.
Tea cozies are made in many different styles. There are those that are made out of silk, which can create a lovely, delicate look. If you want something that resembles a shawl (it really doesn't look anything like one at all) you can get tea cozy bags that are made of silk with a closure flap at the top. These are wonderful bags to use if you are going on an outing or shopping. Having a portable cup of tea prepared on a bag helps keep your tea nice and fresh.
For something a little less formal, you can find cozies in a variety of patterns, such as polka dots. You can even get cozies that have animal designs or that represent famous places. Many people feel very strongly about their favorite sports teams, and these can easily be made into a tea cozy by using your home sewing machine. Almost anything can be used as a tea cozy for your purposes, and there are many reasons to do so.
Tea cozies have become so popular that many stores carry them. This makes it easy to find the perfect one for your taste. Tea cozies can be found for all kinds of events, from weddings to camping trips. Many people keep several cozies with them so that they can serve tea at any time.
