All of this really started with one cup of tea? Do you really offer this as a basic translation? This is supposed to be a question, isn't it?

It may not be the "standard" way of phrasing a question in English, but this phrasing is often used.

It should be genitive as shown -- a cup OF tea -- even though šálek is the instrumental.
