Ben Fogle has recorded a new video filled with tips on throwing a perfect tea party to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The Castaway-contestant-turned-TV-personality has teamed up with tea folk Typhoo - who have launched the commemorative J'oo'bilee blend - to give us helpful advice and etiquette know-how.
Here are Ben's top tips on hosting a tea party fit for the Queen:
Cloth napkins should be used in preference to paper napkins, for example cotton or linen.
All tables should be covered in fresh table cloths.
Doilies can be used under hot surfaces such as teapots.
Serve a colourful assortment of cakes, sandwiches and scones - examples of these may include cucumber sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and cakes such as Victoria sponges, Bakewell tarts and a variety of different flavoured cupcakes.
A variety of teas is important. These may include herbal teas, green teas and black teas.
When making tea for guests, it is especially important to heat the teapot first with boiling water.
Leave the boiling water in the pot to heat up and then pour it out again, leaving an empty warm teapot. You then place your tea leaves in and add freshly boiled water.
After 3 to 5 minutes brewing time, the host or hostess should pour the tea through a tea strainer into china cups and individually pass it around the table for people to add their own milk and sugar as required.
'The Do's' of how to drink your tea
When stirring tea, swish the tea back and forth, making sure never to hit the sides of the cup. Never leave the spoon in the cup, but gently rest the spoon on the saucer, behind the cup on the right side under the cup handle.
Tea should be drunk by lifting the saucer and cup together, with the saucer in one hand, and cup in the other.
