Graduated from Putney High School in Putney, VT in 1984.
Her first name is pronounced "TAY-uh."
The name Tea means "goddess"
Auditioned for a "Charlie's Angels" (1976) remake role (as a dare) and got the part. A writer's strike in Hollywood meant the series was never made, but the pre-publicity was enough to get Tea noticed.
Tea's character in Deep Impact breaks the story on a comet going to hit the Earth and her character on "The Naked Truth" works for "The Comet."
