Etymology[edit]

From Middle Iranian *čāšak. Compare Persian چاشنی(čāšnī, taste; taste by way of a sample). The Iranian word was also borrowed into Sanskrit as चषक(caṣaka, cup), Georgian as ჭაშნიკი(č̣ašniḳi, gustation of wine) and Turkish as çeşni(flavor, taste). For the root, compare Sanskrit चष्(caṣ, to eat). Related to ճաշ(čaš).
