Guide to Drinking Tea

Found on the wall of the delightful Rosie Lea tearooms in Hoylake on the Wirral peninsula.  (Click to enlarge).

  1. Oh yes! The US could learn a thing or too about tea drinking! They often serve hot water with a tea bag and I'm always sending back the hot water to get it hotter, but I think there some crazy regulation about how hot a drink can be served. Some crazy person sued for getting their mouth burned!!!

  3. What I find most puzzling is the exhortation to just stare down into your own cup and never meet the eyes of another guest... (Is one allowed to talk to anyone between sips??)

    1. I had to peek in closer at the photo, now I see what you're saying. That is very odd. I've never been one to keep "the rules" of everything "proper" anyway (I'm truly not very good at it). lol ;)

  5. Honestly, not a lesson I will take to heart - 1. I don't drink milk, neither in tea nor coffee. 2. Not grasping the bowl with my hand(s)? Having the chance to warm my almost always cold hands on the hot cup or mug is one big reason for me to having tea in the first place! I agree about the slurping and sipping from the spoon bits, though :-)

  6. That's that sort of thing that makes Rosie's so attractive. I certainly agree with the imprecation not to slurp. I was going to say that only in America with it's suing culture could Flamblogger's comment happen but, sadly, I'm sure that will happen here soon too. That will be the death of tea.

  7. I guess I am primitive. I love to dunk a biscuit.

    1. That's the only way to thoroughly enjoy a ginger nut!
