Tea Cozy revisited




I love tea. Particularly real tea in a teapot made with tealeaves.






My friend has just discovered real fresh proper tea too.




I am making him a tea cozy. He's making tea at the moment in a cafetiere so I'll get him a cheap teapot too. I'm halfway through - will post you another picture when I'm finished. *done - see top! Apologies for the mobile phone camera snaps*

I love tea too but I drink decaf.

My hubbie will only drink real tea and it has to be made in a pot. His idea of excitement is to visit the tea shop in Chesterfield and sample several teas before making a purchase. I order a cream tea to munch with the tea so i can't really complain. Yet somehow i feel it's a little sad when I read it back....

Ak - have you tried this red leaf stuff they've been advertising. I found it ok but the caf is part of the point for me.

Queenie - I would love it too so can't possibly think it's anything but cool!

Bond - ta. What do you think now it is finished?

When I took a business trip overseas, I got hooked on tea. But when I got home and tried to continue the habit, I found that I had no idea how to make proper tea. So eventually I gave it up.

The teabags make ok tea, but there's nothing like the "real" tea I experienced overseas.

Trav - where overseas did you have real tea?
