I find it's a great 'occupier', especially if you have little to talk about with the visitor- you can just sit and enjoy your cuppa.
The worst is when they say "no, I'm right thanks", or ask for some water. With the non-anything-drinker, they sit there awkwardly while you enjoy your cuppa, with no mug to fiddle with. And with a water-drinker, there's only so much water they can sip before they either have to act dehydrated and get another glass, or just hold it and look...odd.
Even if I don't *need* a tea, I always accept one, as it's nice to have a little, and better than looking and feeling awkward. And yes, the host feels like they are hosting well. There's something a little bit insulting about someone not wanting a warm beverage you are offering. :-)

PS- I always offer tea, coffee, decaf, hot chocolate...as I find the fourth option is often a winner if the first couple aren't. :-)
