Mali.




Students and lovers of tea culture will notice that the long pour is a feature of traditional tea cultures in numerous far-flung places. Pulled tea in India, long-spout pouring in China, or this high pour in Mali — in each case the tea is aerated and vitalized by this technique, similar to how red wine is aerated to deepen flavor. This is something which didn’t make its way into British tea culture, maybe because it’s too vigorous and non-dainty for the Victorian high tea setting. For all I know Starbucks is onto this and will soon come out with some abomination like “Malinese Zen Soy Pulled Chai Mint Latte” where aeration is performed by machine.

America: Do whatever the fuck you want because America

Does anyone actually follow that ettiquette in England?
Because my understanding of tea ettiquette in England is: OFFER YOUR GUEST TEA AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE - GIVE THEM THE LARGER MUG, BECAUSE THEN THEY CAN HAVE MORE TEA IN IT, AND MORE TEA IS BETTER - OFFER THEM MORE TEA AS SOON AS THEY HAVE FINISHED THEIR MUG OF TEA, BECAUSE MORE TEA IS BETTER.
IF SOMEONE LOOKS STRESSED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UPSET, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS TIRED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST COME IN FROM THE RAIN, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST RECEIVED BAD NEWS, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TV WITH SOMEONE AND THERE IS AN ADBREAK, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF TEA, OFFER TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE TEA. IF SOMEONE IS NOT CURRENTLY HOLDING A MUG OF TEA, DOUBLE CHECK THAT THAT IS AN INTENTIONAL STATE OF AFFAIRS, AND THEY DO NOT, IN FACT, WANT A CUP OF TEA.

“IF SOMEONE IS NOT CURRENTLY HOLDING A MUG OF TEA, DOUBLE CHECK THAT THAT IS AN INTENTIONAL STATE OF AFFAIRS, AND THEY DO NOT, IN FACT, WANT A CUP OF TEA.”
^ The English etiquette around tea, summed up in a single sentence.


ACCURATE AND ALSO GOOD. 
TEA ETIQUETTE = PROVIDE TEA WHENEVER POSSIBLE
