Not well known fact:

Strange as it may seem, not India either. The British introduced tea to
India and it was only well into the 19th century that they actually
convinced any of the natives to drink it!

To the best of my knowledge and belief, "tea" as the name of a social 
event is long out of period. In my view, the practice of having 
"teas" at events is in the same category as announcing a Queen's Arts 
Cocktail party--one more way in which the SCA decreases historical 
knowledge instead of increasing it.
