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).
