Never drink it cold or weak,
too brewed, stewed steamed
or in a state of fusion.
Sip it with style and take this tip.
Don’t grip the handle,
or partake of with cake,
in the middle of a coughing fit,
it will only cause confusion.
If you accidentally swallow a tea leaf whole,
never choke over Aunt Maude’s Potpourri bowl.
Always linger while sticking out your smallest finger.
Do not spill it on your knee,
And if you really need a pee,
don’t do it in the saucer.
