I am very delighted to share with you a little project which designed itself as I knitted it up just last night and this morning !!!
Using three shades of grey…
A little something for my Old Pioneer Jar Method of brewing tea…
Though I normally use the clear kind of canning jars, for these photos I used one of my collection of antique blue glass canning jars, with zinc lids. So pretty…
And so, I made a cozy little Tea Cozy for my Jar Brewing method. It’s so adorable , I’m over the moon about it ! It reminds me a little of a Nepali or Tibeten Headress.
Bird’s eye view, knotted i-cord ‘bobble’ handle…
It rather speaks of it’s delicious namesake…
I like to drink my tea in a pint glass.
…and add whole milk.
Earl Grey Tea Cozy. Whimsical. Playful. Silly !
Do you suppose a standard 6-cup English teapot version is inevitable?
Maybe, but for now, I am quite pleased to be presenting my own pioneer tea-brewing method and the cozy”Earl Grey” Tea ‘Jar’ Cozy !
Thanks Ben ! …. but not so much proportionally, this was a fairly petite little project.
So cute! And the way I love tea, I love how you drink it by the pint!
Thank you Martha. It’s very odd how I started drinking from a pint glass, it just evolved that way likely because there were no clean ceramic cups in the cupboard, but a whole bunch of pint glasses. I have come to only drink it that way now.
I drink from jelly jars. My DD drinks from pint jars 🙂
See? There’s a whole society of jar tea drinkers !
Delicious looking. Nothing to revive a day like a grand cuppa!
And I drink…. maybe 2 , sometimes 3 pints a day?
As an Earl Grey tea drinker I think this is the ultimate in class! I drink it by the bucketload – or pot load. I am more of a bone china mug person – or, if we are being really posh, a cup and saucer. No milk, very weak and I top up as I drink so that the temperature is right – not too hot and never too cold. That’s when a cosy is just the business.
Yes, the teapot is definitely the next step.
I also have one cup of really good coffee every day which I make in my little cafetiere. I like my coffee with milk added (i usually heat the milk too – but by the time the coffee has brewed (4 minutes by the timer – we all have our little quirks) it is not as hot as I would like it. So………………..Mrs Designer, I throw out the challenge………
I hope you know what I mean by a cafetiere (the little pot that you leave to brew and then plunge).
Wow Lizzi, you are the one with as much taste in variety as myself. I’m a Morning Coffee person too (I make a big pot for Jeff and myself, which actually is on a timer as we are up at 5a.m and running) then later in the morning I make tea. I am such a caffeine addict ! I think you’re talking about a French Press, or just Coffee Press, and yes, this wee little Earl Grey Cozy would fit one exceptionally well, almost as if it’s shape is really wanting to snug over a little press. What size press have you?
Cozy is very practical…can you see nearly everything around us need at least one?! LOL
