Thistledown Cozies has been in business since 1995 manufacturing tea cozies and tea accessories for the tea industry. Our customers include tea rooms, tea shops, and tea related gift shops. We are wholesalers only. Our products are sold to the public in fine tea shops around the world, and on the web by a few of our customers. See Retail Shops above.

We are a cottage industry located in southern New Hampshire, USA. As a very small company we can offer personal service, but have at our disposal local manufacturing capable of high volumes.

Our products have been featured in many tea industry publications, and favorably reviewed by numerous online tea reviewers. Our 'HOB', designed as a tea cozy for men, won a "Best New Product" award at the 2010 World Tea Expo.


Does your business need a unique solution for keeping a pot of tea hot? We can create custom tea cozies for your business. We have experience in projects as involved as needing to keep tea hot from kitchen to distant guest rooms, with a totally unique design fitted to a particular teapot, .... to as simple as making one of our stock designs in fabric coordinating with your business's decor.


Locally made.
Locally sourced materials - as close as possible. Within the USA whenever possible. We are always looking for USA made fabrics - please let us know if you hear of any!
Home based, woman owned.
Living wage. And our stitchers control their own working conditions.


Annelise Pitt, owner of Thistledown Cozies, is the moderator of a facebook group for tearoom owners. This group was started as an extension of a panel discussion at a World Tea Expo session called "Future of Victorian and Traditional Tearooms" which Annelise and friend/tearoom owner Brenda Ghorashi moderated.
The facebook group's mission is to provide a forum for tearoom owners to share with their peers. Topics addressed range from the pros and cons of dishwasher rental - to tea sandwich recipes. Contact Annelise at Thistledown Cozies to join. (you must have a personal fb account in order to join this fb group)
