English Tea Drinking Tips
larrylark

Never drink it cold or weak,
 1
too brewed, stewed steamed
 2
or in a state of fusion.
 3
Sip it with style and take this tip.
 4
Don’t grip the handle,
 5
or partake of with cake,
 6
in the middle of a coughing fit,
 7
it will only cause confusion.
 8
If you accidentally swallow a tea leaf whole,
 9
never choke over Aunt Maude’s Potpourri bowl.
 10
Always linger while sticking out your smallest finger.
 11
Do not spill it on your knee,
 12
And if you really need a pee,
 13
don’t do it in the saucer.
