Ordering Tea? Here are a Few Etiquette Tips!!!

When ordering tea at an event or restaurant, you will be provided with  an empty cup, saucer, tea bag, and pot of hot water.  What now???

1.  Place the tea bag in your cup.
2.  Pour water over tea bag.
3.  Allow to 'steep' for 3-5 minutes.
4.  Remove from cup and place on saucer.

What if no saucer???
Place tea bag on bread plate.

What if no bread plate??  Place on rim of dessert or dinner plate.

5.  Add lemon and sugar to tea after you have removed the tea bag.

The big Tea No-No - Squeeze tea bag against cup for the 'last flavor.'
