Tea Party Etiquette and a Downton Abbey Giveaway

Season five of the PBS hit Downton Abbey airs Sunday. In honor of the event the HIS Morning Crew held a Downtown Abbey tea party. With the help of etiquette expert Angie Mosley we learned a few rules:

1. Serve the guest of honor first. And never fill their tea cup more than 3/4 full.

2. Don’t hold your pinky up! Gently grasp the handle of your tea cup.

3. Eat your scone by tearing off one piece at a time.

For the full lesson be sure to watch this video of our interview:

According to Wired Magazine, “This fight is about more than just social media—it’s about primal biology and the way human eyes and brains have evolved to see color in a sunlit world.”

We’ve got to know– what color do you see?
