The narrowboat tea cosy is inspired by the rising popularity of the British Inland Waterways and canal boat holidays. The tea cosy has traditionally canal boat colours, dark green and bright red and yellow. The roof has a tin chimney, brass coloured air vents and a decorated pigeon box with button porthole windows. The boat also has bow and button fenders in case of any boating accidents.The spout of the teapot becomes the tiller for the boat. The hull of the narrowboat tea cosy is turned up onto itself, giving super insulation, the difference between a lovely cup of tea and a cold cup of canal water!

Keep tea hot canal boat style, the narrowboat tea cosy allows you to get through a lock and still come back to a piping hot cup of tea for skipper and crew.
