Holding a tea cup
A tea cup with a handle is held by placing your fingers to the front and back of the handle with the little finger held up slightly out. Gently straightening the little finger at a slightly tilted angle creates balance. Never loop your fingers through the handle.
If the cup does not have a handle place your thumb at the six o'clock position and index and middle fingers at twelve o'clock, whilst gently raising the little finger for balance. Do not cradle it in your palm.
