A spin-off from the term, "to drink the Kool-Aide," which means to have bought an ideology unquestionably. "drinking the tea" refers to those kool aide drinkers partaking in the protests against deficit spending, known as the "tea party" protests. The tea party reference itself born of a mistaken understanding of the Boston Tea Party, when a number of people who could of been hung for their views protested against being denied Democracy.

Modern day Teabaggers are the type who after 8 years of being blissfully unaware of irresponsible spending, dump Earl Gray tea into bodies of water without fear of repercussions.
So, did you hear John has become a teabagger?

Oh yeah, he's really drank the tea.
