HOK MIR NICHT KEIN CHINIK
Clanging and banging a tea kettle is very noisy.
“Don’t rattle my tea kettle” is the meaning of the Yiddish phrase:
Hok mir nicht kein chinik.
It is used when someone is rattled. He tells the other person to stop bothering him.
Hak mir nisht keyn tsaynik!
(Alternate spelling of the Yiddish phrase). Many people order Chai which means tea and is borrowed from the Mandarin word for tea cha. A British cup of tea is also cha.
