Tea cups should be held properly
Drinking tea is “sacred” in the UK. But you have to know how to drink tea the right way. You just cannot grab the tea cup with full force and seem as if you were going to devour that little cup, or as if you were going to drink the tea in one drought. When it comes to drinking tea properly, you can’t put your finger in the grip cavity. There is a way to drink tea like the royals. There is a way to drink tea that makes you look elegant and royal. Any new person marrying into the royal family must first be trained to follow table manners, which include the best way to drink tea.

Those who could not afford these cups would therefore put the milk (liquid) first, then the tea. And do you still want to be a princess or a duchess?
