the tea in the radio might be. One way to eliminate the doubt would be to remove the radio and see if the issue goes away.

The tea probably created a circuit and now electricity is being drawn. I have had this problem with a few fords of mine... It is usually just a dirty connection. A multimeter will help you locate the problem. If the car has a factory amp, sometimes those drain the battery too.

So do I just take the whole radio out an then it will stop or do I need to take it to a dealership an have them fix it

If you could take the radio out yourself that would be great... There's no guarantee's that it will fix your problem (Its just a test). Don't bring it to a dealer unless you're made of money.
