Can any one tell me why not, still there is a little tea left in the cup.

Little is used for some living thing or thing but for liquid which doesn't have a particular unit of measurement then use some. Like some water.

I think 'little' or 'a little' or 'the little' are used in a sentence.

For uncountable nouns article 'the' is used. Then little tea is not a countable noun to use 'a' before little. Then how come that is the correct answer?
