||My Nan still talks about the tea money - apparently it is vital to keep the bubbles central as long as possible!|
She also does the up and down pouring mentioned by B North.
||I can confirm that the association between bubbles in tea and money is also alive and well in those born and raised in York.|
NB Could it be that the bubbles/affluence issue is why cappucinos are so expensive? I realise that this is straying away from tea territory, but it might be educational to consider it.
||My gran always says you know when the tea's hot cos it do 'ave steam commin' off it it do. Genius!|

I'm from Essex and have never heard about tea money before. My Dad would sometimes pour the tea from high above the teacup, joking that it was "high tea". This made lots of bubbles, but never made me rich - maybe it doesn't work if you make the bubbles deliberately.
