A teacup is a small cup, with or without a handle that may be grasped with the thumb and one or two fingers. In some lands it is tradition to lift the last finger on the hand, when drinking from a tea cup. It is normally made of a ceramic material and usually part of a set, composed of a cup and a matching saucer. These in turn may be part of a tea set together with a teapot, cream jug, covered sugar bowl and slop bowl en suite. Teacups are wider and shorter than coffee cups but not all the time.
