'Dancing' Stars -- Tea Bag for Two?!

9/14/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before Tony Dovolani and Maksim Chmerkovskiy inject their brute masculinity into the "Dancing with the Stars" ballroom ... the duo takes part in a very secret ritual -- a little tea party.

Sources close to the show tell TMZ, Tony and Maks turn over a new leaf before every performance -- but it ain't your average brew.

We're told Maks' favorite drink is a white tea infused with blueberries ... and Tony prefers a sweet herbal tea with notes of caramel ... both from a company called Dr. Tea's.

The two ballroom pros are known for keeping things steamy.

Love Maks and Tony! Dr. Teas tea products are great! You TMZ staffers should give it a try. I'm sure you'd be willing to put your face on a pic with a dress you'd enjoy it so much. Seriously, Maks and Tony are straight so don't need to go there. They guys posting that they're gay are only probably wishing that to be true. Sorry dude. These two don't swing that way.

Boston-gal,
How do you know for sure Maks is not gay? Do you know him personally or know somebody close to him? Because unless you do, I don't buy it.
Re Dr. Teas, I would sooner walk through fire than buy any of his products and support a porn producer!

If I said I did you wouldn't buy it anyway so what's the difference and why all the negativity? What's with the pron producer reference?

This article is scripted, I think the porn czar paid for this publicity as well. Because no one cares if Maks and Tony drink tea, most people do.

They hawk that disgusting tea on their twitter accounts all the time. Who would want to drink something werewolf Maks and slimey Tony recommend?

Maks hangs with the porn industry who is the owner of the tea company.
