In 2023 the winner will receive a prize worth over $400 in specialty loose leaf tea, tea accessories, and gift items.


How to Enter the Contest

Designs do not have to be original, but the contestant must have handcrafted the knitted, crocheted, or felted tea cozy. (Only cozies created with yarn will be accepted.)

One Entry per Person.

To enter, contestants must email a color, in-focus, clear photograph to [email protected], or mail to The Larkin Tea Co., 545 Warm Springs Avenue, Martinsburg, WV 25404. Photos will not be returned and become the property of The Larkin Tea Co, LLC

*Suggestion: Take the photo with the cozy against a plain background so that the design and workmanship show up better.

All submissions must include name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and descriptive name of cozy.

Photos will be posted online at The Larkin Tea Co’s website at www.larkintea.com. Visitors to the site will vote for their favorite. The tea cozy that receives the most votes wins.


Tea cozy photos will go online approximately one week after the closing date.

Voting will finish seven days after posting of photographs.

The winner will be notified by phone or email.

A photo of the winner with the cozy will be posted on The Larkin Tea Co’s website and shared on social media.  Entrants must be willing to submit such photo.
