Tea around the world (or at least Europe)

The word for "tea" in several European languages is pronounced the same as the letter "T" in the same language. I have verified this for English (tea), Dutch (thee), Spanish (té), and French (thé), and I am sure there are others. I wonder if this is coincidence or there is some other (historical) reason behind it?
