Short for Temporarily Embarrassed Aristocrat. This can mostly be applied to lay members of the Tea Party who have had it beaten into their brains by fox news that anything even remotely 'Socialist' or 'Left Wing' is evil, anti-American and unpatriotic.

These folks also believe that taxing the 'Job Creators' will kill the economy further despite the fact that due to numerous loopholes and tax breaks, many of these 'Job Creators' bay ZERO federal or state taxes. All of this is public record. Just look at the profits and tax returns of the top 20 corporations in America for your proof.

Lastly, a T.E.A. believes that by allowing the real Aristocrats to walk all over them, that they too will become part of the elite...but, like the so-called American Dream, it is just that: A dream. Many are also doing it for the sake of playing the FYIGM card. This term originates from a quote by John Steinbeck.
person 1: "Do those T.E.A. folks realize they're being used?"

person 2: "Some of them don't care all that much. Those folks would do this just to spite anything or anyone that disagrees with them."

"Socialism never took off in America because the workers there see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." -John Steinbeck

The most amazing beautifullist person in the in tire world. She is so amazing, when you look at her your eyelids fall off. She is so amazing everybody wants to be with her all the time. But what most people don't know, she has a horrible life. And being able to get up in the morning, is a struggle. She wishes her parents were there for her, but they arn't and will never be. most people think shes perfect, but really they only see whats on the outside.
te'a is such a fun person to be with!

tea
A very common hot drink that comes from india and sorrounding areas. It is made by taking the leaves from a tea bush and boiling them. this means that such things as Peppermint "tea" or Apple "tea" are in fact not teas they just share the name ( like how the americans stole football) The reason tea is not as popular in american i mostly due to the boston tea part after which the coffee became the norm. Although people often connect england with tea it is actually ireland that drinks the most tea (as well as the most beer). alot of people can be put off by tea if when the first try it probably becaue it is made wrong. most people let it sit for too long after about 5 minutes the leaf releases tannins making a bitter taste. also far to many people have an overdose of milk and sugar and on top of that they do not properly add it. milk should always be warmed then have the tea added to it other wise the milk would be scalded. the milk tastes foul so to compensate for the poor tast more milk is added and then all flavour is lost and people are left with the wrong impression
-Tea should be served in a cup not a mug
-Iced Tea generally has nothing to do with tea and will often scew statistics
-The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints considers it taboo to drink tea god knows why.
I prefer my tea black but if you are going to put something in it, do it right.
The only Rival to a good cup of tea i a good cup of guinness, and like tea guinness can not just be poured to be good it should take 119 sec but that is a different story.
