A piyāla (Persian: پیاله), also called piola, piyala, piyola (Uzbek: piyola, IPA: [pɨjɒlá]), piala (Russian: пиала́ [piaˈla]) or kese (Kazakh: кесе [ki̯ɘsi̯ɘ́]; Kyrgyz: кесе [kesé]) is a small bowl used throughout Central Asia for drinking tea, similar to the Japanese chawan. They may be used for other beverages too, such as kymyz, though traditionally a full-size bowl is used for cold and hot beverages.
