TEA time

What's the difference between a group, squad, side, band, bunch, company, party, gang, selection, crew, troupe, set, line-up, body, corps, cadre, partnership, alliance, working party, posse and a team. Is it more or less than a supportive act.

'TEA time'

There is no "I" in team! but there is TEA in team so why don't you stop and make us some tea?

Theres also a "tam" which after some beers becomes a "tam-tam"

So take out your Gong and sing us a song there is no "I" in team our tea needs some cream!

(Seryianis, 2018)
