'Tea, please.' 'Give us some tea.'

When receiving something one might say '…o kudasai', but there is also the word 'choudai' which means the same. This is used by both males and females, in relaxed, everyday settings. 'Okure' (used by the elderly talking to young people) and 'kure' (a rough, male expression) are also used.
