''Whose is this tea?'' doesn't seem right :/

    Can "ta" in this situation not be "that" as well as "this"?

    In this sentence you clearly point at certain tea, so 'this' is correct. With that it would be 'Czyja jest tamta herbata?'.

    A suggested answer is: "Whose is the tea?" This is wrong.

    If I put "Julesa jest ta herbata" does it become "This is jules's tea"? Or would that just be "Ta jest Julesa herbata"? How would you ask if this is Jules's tea?

    ta herbata jest Julesa (your sentence is correct but word order sounds poetic")= this tea is Jules's

    to jest herbata Julesa. (you need to in this sentence) =this is Jules's tea

    ta jest Julesa =this (one) is Jules's.

    I got "Whose is the tea?" That didn't seem so right, wouldn't it by "Czyja herbata jest ta?" That would mean "Whose tea is this?", right?

    Well, the literal translation of "Czyja jest ta herbata" is "Whose is this tea", and you can always substitute 'this' with 'the' when translating Polish "ta"...
