Where have they gone?


Tea hats are not much more common: our coffee is increasingly hot per cup from a vending machine, and often a fresh tea bag is used for each cup of tea, sometimes with a label with a question or wisdom.

In my youth, coffee and tea were brewed in tea and coffee pots. To prevent premature cooling, such a hot pot was put in a tea cap. For some copies you could slide the pot over it, but I think the other variant is best in memory. You cut open the tea cap at the top, put the pot in question between the protective material and then cut the tea cap back.. Beautiful and energy-saving, the hot drink remained at temperature long enough. Such a thing could be a very colorful and colorful attribute. I sometimes wonder: where have the tea huts gone?
