Tea Coseys for saleThere is a branding, marketing, styling opportunity in the tea-cosey market which is woefully or wonderfully underdeveloped depending on your perspective.   This collection didn’t prompt me to part with £5.37

My main tea-cosey was hand-made by my talented sister-in-law.    My name is sewn on the inside incase a moment of scattiness leads to my  losing  it (the tea cosey).   It fits on my head as snug as a custom-made hat.   That kind of personal tailoring does take some beating and these shop displayed tea coseys just aren’t up to par.

    I like cable knit cosies. I don’t know why. And they have to be handknitted. There is something very cosy about cosies.

    Although I’ve witnessed a tea cosy in use, in my family we were far too eager for the tea to hit the (s)pot, and the poor old cosy became totally redundant. T’eathens the lot of us.

    To my shame, I don’t have a tea cosy.

    Alan Coren once said that “there is something wrong with an Englishman who sees a tea cosy and doesn’t have the urge to put it on his head.

    Kevin, does the library have a tea cosey? If not, its possible that you may need to purchase a six-pack to cover your own personal needs and those of the deprived people in organisations around you. The giving of Tea Coseys is rather a special ceremony that is worth imposing on people. Especially if the tea cosey is particularly visually offensive. Normally this ceremony is reserved for maiden-aunts.
