    invite sb for tea

    Do the following phrases sound natural:

    Are you doing anything special tonight? Mag has invited us for tea. Will you go?

    Is the expression 'to invite sb for tea' natural?
    Can you invite sb 'to' tea?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: invite sb for tea

    'To invite somebody for/to tea' are both natural.

    Please write 'somebody' in full.

    EDIT: Great minds are thinking alike this morning.
