High Tea Etiquette
Minding your manners with Melbourne's resident high tea expert Michelle Milton.
The host should wait for guests to begin before starting.
Making sure everyone at your table has what they need and is comfortable is just good manners. Guests won’t be shy to ask before you start, but after you’ve filled your teacup and plate, they may be reluctant.
Avoid picking items from the tower with your fingers
Use your fork if servers are not provided. Do not remove a plate from the tower – you want to be sure all the guest can reach the tiny delicacies on offer.
The napkin should be folded along the diagonal and placed on your lap
When finished, fold the napkin and place to the side of your plate to signal to the host that you are finished.
Never start eating until everyone has been served
It’s a communal experience, designed to share and enjoy together. Make sure to chew your food with your mouth closed. You’ll have plenty of time for chatting between bites.
Scones should be broken into manageable pieces with your hands
Do not cut with a knife or fork. Use serving spoons to add jam and cream to your working plate – this will help to prevent raspberry jam on your high-tea best!
For further preparation, visit the High Tea Society for history, etiquette and perfecting your cuppa.
