I was recently drinking a cup of tea from a modern style teacup. It struck me how uncomfortable it was and how useful the English style teacup in fact is. The wide brim makes it easy to tip the cup without hitting your nose-bridge. Besides, tea should be poured boiling hot for the tea to infuse properly. But you wouldn’t want to wait too long to be able to drink it, and the wide opening cools it down quickly for that purpose. Finally, the size of the cup is small so you have time to drink all of the tea at about the same temperature, before it gets too cold. Just a thought.
Porter: Drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things.
Macduff: What three things does drink especially provoke?
Porter: Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.
Macbeth: And it’s prose, not verse.
William Shakespeare, 1605
