The Proper Way To Use A Tea Cup And Saucer Combination
If your tea cup has a matching saucer, you should always use them together when drinking tea or even coffee - your cup will look a little lost without its matching saucer! You should leave your saucer on the table and lift the cup to your lips if you are drinking while seated. The only time to hold the saucer while you drink is if you are standing or walking around while you drink.
Cups & Saucers FAQ
What is a cup and saucer?
A cup and saucer is a tea cup and a matching small plate that are traditionally used together to drink tea. They are usually made of a ceramic, such as porcelain, or glass, and can be plainly coloured or feature intricate designs and patterns.
What is the purpose of a saucer?
A saucer's primary purpose is to protect you or a surface like your dining table from the heat of your tea cup, as well as any errant splashes or drips of tea. They are especially handy if you are drinking tea while sitting in a chair without a table to rest your cup on.
Saucers can also be used to rest other parts of your tea-drinking experience on, like a used tea bag, a teaspoon or even a little treat like a biscuit or chocolate.
How to remove tea stains from a cup
After using your tea cups for a while, you may notice stains beginning to form on the inside of the cup that can't be removed with normal washing. Try filling the stained cup with an equal mixture of hot water and vinegar, leaving it for an hour and then hand wash as normal. Or try adding some baking soda to the stain or to your sponge before scrubbing away at it.
The best way to prevent stains is to immediately rinse them after use - letting old tea and coffee sit after use is a sure-fire way to stain your favourite cup!
