喝茶 (hē chá): drink tea

New character combining “tea” (茶) with “interrogate” (查).
Euphemism for police interrogation. When invited to “tea,” one is asked about his/her political activities and warned against further involvement. One who has been compelled to attend these tea sessions is said to have been “tea-drinked.”

Read about the experiences of the tea-drinked who had things to say around the time of the 2010 World Expo, the anniversary of Tiananmen, and the Jasmine Revolution.
