Neither did I, but I have heard the phrase "tea with the ladies" more than once in the U.S. to describe social interactions between well-heeled suburban women.

I think it's more to do with having afternoon tea, in pretty China with cakes and what not, than just drinking tea by itself.

I especially like Earl Grey. Not only is it delicious, tea doesn't give a person coffee breath. That harkens back to grade school when teachers who smoked and drank coffee would lean over your desk to say something to you. Bleh.
And for breakfast at this moment, I'm having tea with Ghiradelli chocolate, mint flavored specifically.

I'm hearing about tea. Up until I was about 9 or 10, I've often seen tea portrayed in America as either a feminine thing, especially after seeing little girls having tea parties. It also came as a result of seeing mostly women drinking tea, mainly these flavored iced teas.

Tea is definitely a feminine drink in Norway.

I drink that in the US, and was quite pleased to see it at one of the servos here!

I don't know anyone personally who dislikes Arizona Green Tea!

It's so refreshing and great on a summer's day and it's only 99 cents a can!

I actually only started drinking it like a couple of years ago or something and got hooked.

America is a backward country anything that is,???? (I don't even know how to explain it), is called gay. Like if a man dresses really well, people call it gay.
anything that a man does maybe slightly different is labeled as that.

Meanwhile women can do, look, say anything and no one blinks an eye...but if a man does anything, it is labeled

It is sickening that Americans do this.
It is the year 2012, and they still do this.
