One of the "best value" high-end home espresso machines is the Isomac Tea.
Some people think that "Tea" is a strange name for an Italian espresso
machine. Why? Because they think that it means (and is pronounced like)
"tea", as in the English breakfast tea drink, or Earl Grey tea.
Tea is one of the seven "common Italian female names" starting with "T":
Tea, Teodora, Teresa, Teresina, Tiziana, Tommasina, Tullia (see, for
example,http://www.eponym.org/italian.html)It is not pronounced as the "tea" you drink, but phonetically (the Italian
way) and sounds like "TAY-uh".
Perhaps that espresso machine was named Tea because she is "bringing out a
forceful, demanding quality" and was designed to "make a success of anything
she undertakes"? And, by the way, she is beautiful!
Description fromhttp://www.kabalarians.com/female/tea.htmYour name of Tea gives you a strong sense of responsibility in business and
material affairs, and the practicality and determination to make a success
of anything you undertake. You are self-sufficient and capable, and have an
interest in positions of leadership and responsibility. You are competent in
directing the efforts of others, as you have good business judgment and the
natural understanding of people. Very likely you have assumed much
responsibility early in life and are often required to make major decisions.
You appreciate settled, accumulative conditions, and a high standard of
living. You have a strong, determined nature and tend to dominate others,
and to interfere, at times, in your desire to be helpful. This name gives
you many good characteristics, but it is too strong, creating a
materialistic nature and bringing out a forceful, demanding quality. The
heavy responsibility your name creates can result in a worrying, intense
nature. It spoils the development and expression of your warmer, more
feminine attributes. It causes tension and allied problems in the female
organs.
