"Çay şekerli mi yoksa şekersiz mi?" Is the tea with sugar or without sugar?
Lets say someone is asking you, 'tea with sugar or without?' Implying a phrase 'istiyor musun' or something. Like asking you if you want the tea with sugar or without. Would this be written as is or would there be a different way to say that in Turkish?
Çay şekerli veya şekersiz içer misin? -> Do you drink tea with or without sugar?
Çay istiyor musun? Would you like tea? Şekerli veya şekersiz? With or without sugar?
My examples don't really relate to your specified question.
Simply put, I would ask you if you would like some tea. You decide if you want it sweetened. Tea spoon & sugar on the table.
İngiliz kalvaltı çay, lütfen. English breakfast tea, please. My favourite.
Of course it makes sense, you are correct. A group of people in a restaurant can be the collective subject. Five teas arrive at your table & the waiter/waitress asks, "şekerli mi yoksa şekersiz mi?"
Pre-sugared tea is not usual. The sugar options are usually self-service by the customer after purchase. The variety of teas/coffees available is a minefield. You now have the option of non-dairy milk(s). Yuk.
