Re: computer wont turn on
How long ago did this happen? Remove the power adapter and the battery. Remove any removable covers from the bottom of the laptop and look for any signs of liquid. Leave the covers off for a couple of days to allow any liquid or moisture to dry up.
Press and hold in the power button for up to 60 seconds to discharge the laptop.
When you are sure there is no more moisture present try starting the laptop.
If it still won't turn on something may have shorted out during the spill and you will probably have to take it to a repair shop.

Take the battery off. Leave the cover off. Put the phone in a bag of rice. Make sure it's completely surrounded by rice. Leave for at least a day. Two would be better. Clean the phone off, reinsert the battery, plug it in to power, and try it. If it still won't power on, getting it wet with the battery in has shorted out components and blown them. If it does work, all's well.
I'm sorry, but there are no alternatives, and you may have bigger issues than just the keyboard. If the tea seeped past the keyboard, and onto the motherboard, which is directly bellow the keyboard, then by trying to start it you may have fried the motherboard. You would be surprised how long it takes for a laptop to dry out, 6 hours is not near long enough. You will also want to clean it, the sugar in the tea can cause corrosion of the circuitry on the motherboard. I'm going to recommend that you take it in for a professional diagnostic and cleaning. This way you will know the exact extent of the damage.
You should get some silica gel packets (the small packets that say "do not eat" and come in boxes of new shoes, or purses) - take the phone apart as much as you can without damaging it and put the phone and the silica packets in a sealed plastic bag and let it sit as long as you can. The silica will pull the moisture out of the phone. I've heard rice works for this as well.
