When ordering a pot of tea in Australia at a cafe is it OK to ask for two cups? A pot of tea is usually served with only one cup.
I like drinking tea but I only drink one cup and I realized that a pot of tea usually holds from 2 to 3 cups, and especially when traveling with someone, it's cheaper to order a pot of tea.
The reason I'm asking this is because I've received various reactions:
- Some waitresses frown or make a face when I ask for another cup.
- At one cafe the waitresses herself asked if I wanted another cup.
- Once a waitresses said "I can get you a cup but that tea pot is for one person only" while in fact the pot had enough tea for two cups.
- Once after asking for a cup the waitresses did not bring one or maybe forgot about it.
I usually get the first reaction.
