Here are some top etiquette tips for afternoon tea compiled by our friends at The English Cream Tea Company.\n1. When sharing afternoon tea - scones, clotted cream and jam with cups of tea - always offer tea and food to others first.\n2. Gently break your scone into halves, don't cut it with a knife.\n3. Put your jam and cream on the side of your plate and from there add to your scone with a knife.\n4. When making tea, always use fresh water.\n5. Pour tea into your cup before the milk. The English Cream Tea Company's tea is also great without milk - the team at The Hamper Lounge can vouch for that!\n6. If your cup and saucer are on a low table, pick up both holding the saucer under the cup as you drink. If sitting at a dining table, it is fine to pick up the cup on its own.\n7. Never leave the spoon in the cup or drink from the saucer!\n8. And finally the best tip - relax and enjoy the experience!
