“Got Tea?” (tea party variant of “Got Milk?")

"Got Milk?” is a popular milk advertising campaign that began in 1993. At a TEA (Taxed Enough Already) party in Cincinnati (OH) on March 15, 2009, “Got Tea?” shirts (using a similar typeface to the “Got Milk?” ads) appeared for the first time.

“Got Tea?” T-shirts, buttons, bumper stickers and other items have been made; the designs have advanced beyond simple “Got Milk?” copycats.

Wikipedia: Got Milk?
Got Milk? is an American advertising campaign encouraging the consumption of cow’s milk, which was created by the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners for the California Milk Processor Board in 1993 and later licensed for use by milk processors and dairy farmers. It has been running since October 29, 1993. The campaign has been credited with greatly increasing milk sales in California though not nationwide.

‘Tea Party:’ Stimulus bill too steep
By Amber Ellis

DOWNTOWN - Dawna Frost had a simple message for anyone who glanced her way: “I live off what I make. Government needs to live on what they already take.”

The Mason resident was one of thousands who showed up Sunday at Fountain Square for the Cincinnati Tea Party, an effort designed to show disapproval for “wasteful government spending.” The group wants Congress to repeal the $787 billion stimulus package that President Barack Obama has championed as a way to create jobs and give the economy a boost.

“The thought of all this spending makes me angry,” Frost said. “I’m tired of being angry.”

Other protesters wore Revolutionary War-era costumes, sported “Got Tea?” shirts and raised signs with messages like, “Give us Liberty, not debt” and “No more bailouts.”

Tea Party Shirt-Got Tea?
We could have selected Samuel Adams and gone with “Got Beer?” but no one would ever throw beer into a harbour.  That’s just ridiculous.

Tea parties emerge as revenue stream
By KENNETH P. VOGEL | 11/30/09 12:12 PM EDT
Tapping into the deep reservoir of anger on the right at President Barack Obama and Congress has turned out to be a financial boon to a diverse collection of tea party-affiliated political groups and candidates soliciting donations and raising money from the sale of T-shirts, books and paraphernalia.
Tea Party Nation’s website sells ads such as the one for a book called “Tea Party Revival: The Conscience of a Conservative Reborn,” which bills itself as “an essential guide” to the movement, and also hawks Tee-shirts emblazoned with “Got Tea?”

Glenn Beck Goes After HuffPost for Mocking a T-Shirt Quoting Washington—But It’s a Fake Quote!
Beck, of course, in showing how “contemptible” HuffPost is, didn’t show the slide show photos of the people in their “Got Tea?” and other Tea Party t-shirts, or the “Give me Liber-TEA,” “I Love My Gun,” and “Obama’s Worst Nightmare” buttons.
