Question:

Would a glass that at the bottom is a straw (therefore no real bais hakibal) need tevila?

Answer:

Interesting picture, but the glass here has a big bais kibul, as the tea collects in the glass like any other glass. Besides, a glass tray, which has no bais kibul also needs tevila with a bracha. The reason we tovel metal and glass is because of tumah of the goyim, but it has nothing to do with the regular halachos of tuma and tahara.

Best Wishes
