Take Five: Tea Cosies

Having mentioned the range of tea cosies from Poppy Treffry the other day, I’ve decided to start a series entitled Take Five. So every now and then I’ll pick a product, have a bit of a search about, take five of them (you might have guessed that!) and blog about them. And I’m going to start off with the humble tea cosy.

According to the Tea Council only 4% of all the tea drunk each day is brewed in a pot from loose tea. That might not sound much, but us Brits drink huge quantities of tea so that still leaves (get it!) us with a lot of tea pots to keep nice and cosy. And don’t forget that coffee pots can also be kept warm with a coffee cosy too.

So, here we have the Take Five tea cosy selection:

barcode cosyThis funky and bright bar code cosy is a steal at only £5.75 (free p&p offer) at amazon.

It’s reversible too so you have the barcode print or a more calming plain blue.

Available for different size tea pots so just select either a 2,  4 or 6 cup pot size.

pantry birds cosyI’m not quite sure what pantry birds are but there are two of them on this lovely tea cosy from John Lewis.

Part of the Polly’s Pantry collection and exclusive to John Lewis, this cosy has two designs, the birds as shown and a gentle polka dot design on the reversible side.

I’m not sure what size teapot it’s for though sorry – it might be one that fits most size teapots. Made entirely from cotton and machine washable.

little teapot cosyThis I’m A Little Teapot cosy from Poppy Treffry is aptly named because it’s made for a 2 cup pot.

And for those of you who don’t know you’re handle from you’re sprout the embroidered teapot on the cosy will give you a jolly big clue.

Ideal for grandparents perhaps who could recite the well known rhyme with their darling grandchildren?

time for teaLeading department store House of Fraser have a range of kitchen linen called Time For Tea. This £7.50 cosy is part of the range and I think it looks looks very homely with the cupcakes and tea cup.

100% cotton and machine washable.

Currently on offer – buy one item from the range of kitchen linen and get another half price.

chicken run cosyAnd for the final tea cosy in this Take Five here’s one from M&S that maybe you’d think is more related to eggs than tea?

Called Chicken Run, this £7.50 cosy makes a fun impression with bright colours and funky chickens. Part of a wide range of inexpensive kitchen linen that good old Marks & Spencers now stock.
