Making a good cup of tea is an art, as anyone with traditional English country kitchen values will attest. But it's also a science. And like all good science, the tried-and-tested theories of English tea-brewing should be challenged when new evidence comes to light as we strive onwards towards a better cup of char. According to a study by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the tradition that milk should always be added to tea rather than the other way round is scientifically unsound. Chemical engineers at Loughborough University in 2003 found that adding milk to the tea after it is poured causes the proteins in the milk to bind together in clumps. This is precisely the same effect that occurs when milk is sterilised at high temperatures. In other words, it's like adding UHT to your tea. Eurgh.

The RSC recommends that for the perfect cup of tea you should add one spoon of tea leaves per litre of water. And we recommend that you should allow it to brew underneath a scrumptious Sophie Allport tea cosy decorated with pictures of dainty, blue cream jugs and half and whole strawberries against a pale blue background with occasional white spots. And while we're at it, we'd like to steer you in the direction of the matching tea towel, china mugs, jugs, oven glovesaprons and more.

Designed and made with the user in mind!  Our cheerful design has been cleverly used on this well made tea cosy.

It provides essential retention of heat at the same time as looking delightful in any kitchen.
It has toweling on the inside for added heat retention.
Made from 100% cotton it is machine washable.
