Ps. Did you know Chinese teacups don’t have handles. In the early days of Europe’s tea craze, people kept burning their fingers on
the cups. The Dutch and the Brits liked their tea hot enough to dissolve sugar and big enough to splash in some milk. But up until this
time, most everyone lived on room-temperature ale, so burnt fingers wasn’t an issue.
From the get-go, tea was 'the' trendy beverage of the wealthy – but people had a hard time figuring out how to drink it hot, yet gracefully.
Along came porcelain handles to protect dainty digits from the heat.
