Table manners extend to beverages too and today when so many meetings and social interactions take place over coffee and tea, I thought it might be good to look at specific etiquette tips associated with these yummy treats.

Four Don’ts:

1.  Your spoon should rest on the saucer or plate, do not leave it in the cup or mug

2.  Don’t take ice from your water to cool a hot drink

3.  Don’t dunk doughnuts, biscotti or anything else in your coffee, unless you are in a SUPER casual environment where that is the norm

4.  Don’t crook your pinkie when drinking from your teacup, this went out of fashion in the Victorian age.
