The rate of evaporation depends upon the suface area. More the area , more the evaporation. So, by putting the tea in the saucer, we r increasing the area and thereby increasing the evaporation. This makes the tea a little cold and we r able to drink it. In the cup, evaporation will take place but at a lower pace as the surface area is comparitively less.
