Yep.

Correlation =/= cause. Would have to see if it is, or even possible (as many lie about consumption, has killed family and others we know), to control for alcohol consumption taking the place of "alternatives" to drinking tea in the study.

(Though as you say, regional differences in consumption and lifestyle would also have a drastic difference. If poor drink less tea, and rich drink more, giving the poor more tea instead of better healthcare, won't help em!)
