"On pije herbatę."

Translation:He is drinking this tea.

I put "That tea" and it was marked correct. Are "this" and "that" the same thing? Surely not......

Can someone also tell me each form for "this" and "that"?

I've been learning for a few days, so sorry if I'm wrong :P

This: Ten - masculine (nominative and accusative inanimate) Ta - feminine (nominative) To - neuter (nominative and accusative) Tego - masculine (accusative animate) Tę - feminine (accusative)

That: Tamten - masculine (nominative and accusative inanimate) Tamta - feminine (nominative) Tamto - neuter (nominative and accusative) Tamtego - masculine (accusative animate) Tamtą - feminine (accusative)

Not "tą herbatę"?

I also want to know why it's "tę" not "tą"

I don't have a better answer than "it just is". Treat it as an exception.

The sentence is in the accusative case because there is a direct object (this tea). For accusative femine objects, you use tę. Even polish native speakers get this wrong. See an excellent guide here: https://www.clozemaster.com/blog/polish-demonstrative-pronouns/

I heard 'te herbaty'. In my heart, I knew I was wrong.

Why "tę"? Why not "ta"?

if it is te herbate, why do we get it wrong when we say tamte herbate?

If you check both declension tables for ten and tamten you will notice one difference. Singular feminine accusative is , but tamtą.
