This cute Russian Doll Cozy is in the shape of the beloved matryoshka doll, and features a Gzhel style pattern against solid blue. It was hand made in Russia with high quality cloth that provides extracellent insulation. This tea cosy is Approximately 14" tall and about 11 1/2" wide. Russians have been using tea cozies for a long time now, because they work very well in keeping the hot water hot! The way to drink tea like a Russian is to make the tea in a pot, cover it with a cozy, and wait at least 15 minutes. Then, the tea is strong enough to drink! (If it is too strong, hot water is added from a samovar).
