I'm a researcher in neurosciences, my native language is Italian, English is my second language and I am bold enough to say I speak it decently. I can also speak French. And people somehow understand me when I do!

@ZafarS: actually, Wikipedia indeed says it comes from Persian chay (چای), which in turn comes from Mandarin chá 茶. I updated the answer accordingly, thanks for pointing that out.

@ZafarS: that is why I put an Hindi, Persian, Urdu, Marathi, Gujarati and Bengali version of the word. Do you have any reference for the Persian being the original one?
