When inviting a guest over for “tea,” of course you want everything to be perfect. Pour carefully and try not to spill.
Always serve your guest first so that they know they are getting your full attention.
Don’t be in a hurry now–take your time. Sip slowly and savor the moment.
A little light conversation–perhaps about the weather–will put your guest at ease.
Be sure to offer seconds…or even thirds…if your guest would like a bit more.
Pour yourself another along side them so they feel more comfortable.
If you finish before they do, just be polite and patient, smile…
and go find some cake.
