Super simple tea cozy

One of my simple pleasures is a pot of tea each morning.  I drink loose leaf earl grey brewed in a cast iron pot. I like it hot clear to the last cup, so had been leaving the pot on the stove on warm setting.  But I felt bad about the electricity. I was resigned to making a tea cozy for my pot. Then it hit me that an old ski hat would fit perfectly. I'd already cut the stitches on this one for a Halloween costume,  meaning I could put the spout through and didn't have to worry about condensation inside. It works well and keeps the tea nearly as hot as the stove.

I also drink loose leaf earl grey in the morning.  Do you measure your tea and water? I just eye ball the tea and add 16 ounces of water.

I warm the pot with a splash of boiling water,  put 3 heaping teaspoons of tea in the pot, and fill it to the top with hot water (just shy of a liter). Small pleasures.
 
I'm sure glad that he's gone. Now I can read this tiny ad in peace!
