from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. One who is addicted to the immoderate use of tea; a tea-drunkard.
It is customary to speak of acute, subacute, and chronic 'theism' - a form that has no connection with theological matters. It is possible to be a ‘theic’ by profession or a ‘theic’ by passion.
This word comes from the Latin ‘the-a,’ tea.
