Historical Background

"Chai" is the word for tea in several countries across Europe and Asia. The icon in FFXI most closely resembles a distinctive Turkish tea service, with a tall narrow glass of strong, almost inky black tea. This fits with the Turkish origins of several other food names in ToAU. The word "chai" has been popularized recently in the United States as a term for fancy imported teas, but it is a general word for any tea in many non-English languages.
