    "He poured the tea from his cup into his saucer and drank it."

    Hello Bhai,

    What does your sentence mean?
    A saucer is a small dish used to hold a matching cup. I am not sure I get the idea your sentence conveys.

    It used to be popular to pour the tea from the cup into the saucer and then drink it from the saucer, I can remember older people in the UK doing this when I was young. I have also seen this in India in more recent years.
