tea is te

te = tea (noun) (some things Google found for "te": an uncommon term; TE Connectivity Ltd. is an electronics company; TE is the NYSE stock for TECO Energy; an uncommon last name; an unusual first name; symbol for chemical element Tellurium; a pronoun meaning you (singular) in French, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish; a pronoun meaning you (plural) in Estonian and Finnish; means tea in Basque, Catalan, Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, and Welsh; means warm in Irish; means the letter T in Latin, Spanish and Turkish; means the in Maori; means to and too in Dutch; first part of the name of a number of places in New Zealand; name of places in Burma and Ivory Coast)

Word derivation for "tea" :
Basque = te, Finnish = tee
Miresua = te

This is a new word. As I made the word for coffee, I thought I'd do tea, too. But there was nothing, and I mean nothing, for me to work with to work with in building this word. The Basque and Finnish words are too similar.

The word for tea was supposed to be posted on the 6th, but that didn't happen. So the 8th it is. Poor planning on my part.

The word tea occurs a handful of times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it....
