Phosphate is PO4 (3-). It is an inorganic ion and you would come across it during alevel biology when dealing with ATP ADP and AMP. Sugars are hydrocarbons which are usually used in respiration to provide energy for cells. In biology alevels the common ones are glucose, galactose and fructose. Glucose is the on used in respiration

Phosphate is a small ion. It consists of phosphorus with 4 oxygen atoms and has a negative 3 charge: PO4 (3-)

Sugars are a group of molecules. Mostly ring shaped with lots of -OH groups stick out of them. Eg glucose, galactose...

No there isn't much difference in the sugar you put in your tea and sugar used in respiration.

The sugar that you put in tea is sucrose. It is made of a molecule of glucose and a molecule of fructose joined together .The main sugar that features in respiration is glucose.
