I had a spicy tea.
I had spicy tea.
Which one is correct in terms of articles and why?
Do we use indefinite article before mass noun such as "tea"? This is made up sentence and I don't want to express the idea of a cup of tea.
I am confused about indefinite articles:either it says one of many of the noun or one kind or type of the noun in question

Drug metabolism is the chemical alteration of a drug by the body.
Drug Metabolism - Drugs - MSD Manual Consumer Version
Please explain the use of "the" in "chemical alteration".
Does it refer to "alteration" which I think must be countable?
Why "a" doesn't fit here?

Is "up" an adverb and "from" a preposition? Thank you in advance.

Old Ma wobbled up from her bed and went to the window and threw bean out.
I read the above in my son's reading book "Molly and the Beanstalk".
What is the grammatical form and function of "up" in "wobbled up".
How do know that if "wobbled up" is a phrasal verb or not?
I couldn't decide if "up" belongs to the verb "wobble" as in a phrasal verb?

Thanks. Are there any rules or tips to know which word combinations are allowed and natural?
