More Information

Tea (Dargh) is another common Klingon beverage. There are many types of tea, some based on vegetable matter, some on animal. The word Dargh refers to the beverage only. If plants or animal parts are dried and, if necessary, chopped up before being steeped in boiling water to produce Dargh, this preparation is called Qenvob. Often, however, there is no Qenvob; the tea is made by simply picking thorns, leaves, petals, or seeds off of a plant and immediately immersing them in the water. Usually brackish water (bIQ na') is best. Tea may be made either in a teapot (runpI') or directly in the teacup (Dargh HIvje', or, if not a cup specifically designed for drinking tea, just HIvje'). (KGT p. 96):

Some drinks are served in special containers, such as the runpI' (teapot) used in the making of Dargh (tea), and are then poured into the appropriate HIvje'. (KGT p. 99)

The common word for teacup is Dargh HIvje' (literally, "tea drinking vessel"). Among the upper classes, the word tu'lum is used with some frequency, though, strictly speaking, this archaic word used to mean only a cup made of metal. (KGT p. 42)
