What If You Were Invited to Have Tea with the Queen SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOt0Fydz6ec&list=PLEpCgrnIa3x79OI2TUrTrRKM8991rvMxY&index=4&t=0s : So you wake up one morning, and an owl brings you … no, not an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, but an invitation to have afternoon tea with Her Majesty the Queen of England herself! Oh, my! Aren’t you a special one? Have you learned all the DOs and DON’Ts of royal tea protocol?
“Afternoon tea” is served at around 4 o’clock and isn’t just a snack but also a social affair. That means, get ready for plenty of etiquette rules! For example, just because there was no exact dress code on the invite doesn’t mean you can dress the same way you do when you go to the grocery store on Sundays!

– Anyone who’s about to meet the royal family is supposed to wear something right for the occasion: smart casual or business casual will be just fine.
– When at a Royal tea party, do as the Royals do. So start with sugar, if you need any, then fill the cup up to about three-quarters using a strainer. It’s placed over your cup for that reason.
– Now that there’s milk and sugar in your tea, you want to stir it. Don’t make a little whirlpool in the cup by stirring the tea in circular motions! You need to stir it back and forth from 12 to 6 if you imagine it like the face of a clock.
– As much as you want to warm up your hands, don’t wrap them around your tea! The proper way to do it is to hold the loop of the handle with your index finger and thumb.
– British royals don’t really stick their pinkies up to show how posh they are. I even heard extending it is a pretty rude gesture.
– This saucer looks fantastic, it’s the most exquisite pottery and everything, but please leave it on the table. It’s only okay to hold it together with the cup when there’s no table in front of you, like when you’re standing.
– When the cup is on the table, it should always point at the 3 on your imaginary clock. If you’re left-handed, you can relocate it to 9 o’clock for convenience.
– When drinking, focus on the teacup! Don’t look over it around the room.
– Don’t slurp or gulp it down! As you lift your cup, take just one sip, then carefully put it back. And stop blowing on it!
– And now comes the most exciting part – food! It’s served on a pyramid of three tiers.
– The sandwiches you’ll see at a royal tea party will be bite-sized and without crusts. Her Majesty’s personal favorites are with fillings of cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and mayonnaise, or ham and mustard.
– So, the top of the pyramid is where you’ll find the sweets. Crispy cookies, strawberry tarts, honey and cream sponge, and many other kinds of cakes all gorgeous and fancy as can be.
– It looks like the party is coming to an end. To wrap it up, take the napkin off your lap and leave it to the left of your cup and saucer.
