This fun tea cosy is Approximately 14" tall and about 11 1/2" wide and is in the shape of a woman, wearing a dress with a matryoshki (nesting dolls) print on it! In addition, the face of this cozy is made of wood and painted on just like a Russian nesting doll or matryoshka. Tea cozies work very well in keeping 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).
