Proper Tea Form

During one breakfast over the weekend, Rebecca suddenly took it upon herself to demonstrate for me the proper way to drink tea.

I guess she felt I was not aware,

or she just wanted to show off her vast knowledge of things.

Here she is with her fingers grasping the teacup's handle while her pinky is thrust out for effect.

She also toasted me with a, "pip, pip cheerio", before she raised her cup.

(something she learned from an epsiode of "Backyardigans").

Now you are informed too!

Cute!!! Does she do the accent too? They actually do learn quite a bit from Backyardigans, little Einsteins, ... rugrats, not so much!

Very nice form indeed! I have arthritis in my fingers, so I tend to pick and hold the cup by the rim... A bit safer for me... Even if not so proper!

Well of course, da-ling but how do you drink proper tea if it is in a mug and not a gorgeous tea cup? hmmm. I hope the "pip pip cheerio" still applies cause that is just FUN! Happy T on T~
