How to Properly Drink your Tea

First and foremost never hold your cup with your pinkie finger extended. This is improper and in most social settings is considered rude. Place your index finger into the handle of the cup up to the knuckle while placing your thumb on the top of the handle to secure the cup. The bottom of the handle should then rest on your third finger. The fourth and fifth fingers should curve back towards your wrist.
I guess I'm a savage. Maybe I can mask it by never drinking tea. And with this level of complexity, you should really post it in Tips/Instruction.

When I'm serving I don't want the third ball, I'd just as soon the opponent has it in a pocket and gives it to me when needed. Now, the ones that forget it's in their pocket...that is peevish.
