Tea and English

Hello everyone, 

I've heard about that because the English people like drinking tea, they take pronouncing the letter "T" in consideration. 

I found this thing interesting. Can you tell me more about it? And also, is there any reliable source mentioning pronouncing "T" related to Tea in England? 

Thanks! ^^

I think it's a joke - they're 'pulling your leg' - teasing you, by suggesting that we pronounce the letter 'T' because we drink tea.  It's a good observation though.

A lot of English people like drinking tea. That is true.

I genuinely have no idea what you mean about the pronunciation though. 'Tea' is pronounced the same as the letter 't', the same as it is in every English-speaking country.

Thanks! I understand what you say, I mean, the letter 'T" is pronounced more clearly, is there any relation to the fact that English people like drinking tea?? :D

Oh really? Maybe it's a joke XD 

I have a question, is this thing is related to difference between American accent and British accent in pronouncing letter "T" (such as: water)? (I'm just curious)
