Tea Quote

From 365 Things Every Tea Lovers Should Know......... The hostess of a tea party serves the tea and makes sure that every guest has a full cup. A hostess can also ask a friend to "do the honors" of pouring tea.

Hi Bernideen...this is so true...often, a hostess doesn't seem to realize that its proper etiquette to pour for her guests. I always prefer to do so, as it also allows me to know when the teapot needs to be refilled or warmed up a little. Enjoy your blog...we "tea" lovers have so much in common, but we're also always learning from each other.

God bless,
Mary

I wonder: is it honoring the guests by pouring or is it honoring the person who pours? --Teaternity

Love all your tips. I love pouring for my guest, unless it is a large group. Then I have back up so I can enjoy ever guest.
