X



I vow to become a tea drinker this fall. I never understood the need for a tea cosy until a friend of mine was using one and I noticed that the tea in the pot stayed warmer longer. Duh! I did not grow up drinking hot tea.

Hah! I did grow up with a mom who drank tea quite a bit. She always had it with sugar and milk in it (which I find disgusting). When I have hot tea, it is sugar only. But then I rarely drink hot tea either. I wonder why? I think it tastes better than coffee but the coffee has become a habit in the morning. I don't drink much of anything during the days, only when I eat. Sigh...

Way to get around the "x", Paula! LOL

Poor Paula: she grew up as an American where the niceties of tea are unknown.
Having lived 20 years in the US and always near the US we learned the difference with tea drinkers.
In southern Idaho if you want tea in the summer you better say "Hot tea" or it will come iced. I do like the unsweetened tea served in the north western US.
I remember going to a church pot luck once where there was a coffee urn of hot water and Styrofoam cups and tea bags, and the visiting choir director said happily "Oh good, nothing like a nice cup of hot tea" and I thought "It will be nothing like a good cup of hot tea."
We had friends in Naples, Idaho who used to serve tea (and make it) in one of those big old gallon white enamel pitchers and we would swear they only used one tea bag for the whole thing.
I love tea cozies and make and sell them but I often am caught just wrapping the pot in the tea towel.
