Tea Cosies to Keep Your Cuppa Warm

In celebration of this months fantastic competition to win a Snapdragon tea cosie thanks to From The Wilde I thought it would be appropriate to do a tea cosie blog. Tea cosies were a familiar sight on kitchen tables in the past, but then seemed to disappear. However, I am delighted to say that they are making a come back, perhaps this can be linked to the increasing popularity of baking and cupcakes. After all nothing goes better together than cake and a good cuppa.

As well as the beautiful Chicken tea cosie Snapdragon make this lovely caravan tea cosie also which is also stocked by From The Wilde, alongside designs by Poppy Treffry and Kittyeden.


Poppy Treffry's handmade tea cosie designs are stocked in a number of online shops. However, my favourite design is I think the Flower Power one stocked by Nettle Green. They also stock a range of Poppy Treffry cafetiere cosies.

At Tea Pea Vintage you will find a range of items made from vintage and pre-loved fabrics created by Tanya Palmer. This lovely Bird of Hope tea cosie is just one example of Tanya's fantastic creations.

Made in the Highlands of Scotland by Jane Dunn this wonderful tea cosie is just the thing for keeping your cuppa warm and adding a touch of brightness to your kitchen. I just love the spots and the flower at the top. Jane set up Cosy Cosies when she first started selling tea cosies and has now expanded into iphone and hot water bottle cosies.

If bright spots aren't your thing then perhaps the elegant  tea cosie by Elizabeth Cook Design will be more your cup of tea - sorry couldn't resist! With a beautiful leaf pattern it will look good on any table.

Finally if you are looking for something more traditional then this knitted tea cosie from RE will be ideal. With a modern twist on an old favourite. I really like the different coloured squiggly tops.

All this talk of tea has made me very thirsty, so I am off to put the kettle on.
