Afternoon tea parties are a class apart; it’s all about elegance and etiquettes. Now if you’re up for hosting it; besides planning up the event and decorating the table accordingly you also need to brush up your table manners for a perfect English tea. Remember being the host or not you need to offer pouring the tea or serve the scones to others first. Keep a second tea pot full of hot water to facilitate a strong or mild tea as per one’s fascination; and always fill the cup to three fourth to avoid spillage over the brim. Do not make a burger out of scone and make sure you leave the table after the guest of honour if any. Lastly never forget to dab your napkin on your lips when you’re done and say a generous thank you.
