cuppa /ˈkʌpə/  

(countable noun) (informal) Usage note: This term is used by many speakers.

Short for ‘a cup of’, usually referring to a cup of tea, which can be served in a mug or a cup and saucer. Having a cuppa with someone often implies that you will sit down for a chat (a friendly talk) too.

Example: They came up around morning tea time and we had a nice cuppa then showed the 4 kids the chickens, pigs and sheep and they helped collect the eggs - which the chooks had well hidden in the hay shed. (http://www.farmday.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=22&Itemid=11)
