Last week I met a lady at our shop who wholesales tea cozies. Now I confess that since we have wonderful Wanda making our tea cozies, I was a little on guard, waiting for the sales pitch. But happily that's not what this is about!
During our conversation she reminded me of the value of making a pot of tea, keeping it warm and enjoying it over an extended period of time. Pretty simple - right?
With busy lives and a difference in tastes, our house has multiple infusers on the go at any given time, but I typically only made a pot of tea when we had guests. A random conversation about tea cozies has changed all that!
Two realities of modern life:
We need to drink more water/fluid and we need more time
My epiphany is that using a tea pot and cozy combo helps me to drink more fluid and save time.
With a ready supply of hot, healthy and delicious tea, I don't have to start the kettle, get distracted, measure the tea, wait for it to steep, get distracted again ... you get the picture! And if I want a warm up for 1/2 a cup; it's ready and waiting for me! Result? I'm drinking more tea - voila ... increasing my fluid intake :)
So simple, yet profoundly enjoyable!
