Merhaba

Sen çay istiyor musun?
sen çay içmek ister misin?

 

From grammar perspective,

... çay istiyor musun?

 -yor is (present) continuous form, so the question sounds like more for "now"; "do you want tea now?"

... çay ister misin?

-r is aorist form, and also has an "offer" meaning in kind form. So it sounds more like english offer: "Would you like Tea?"

 

with the word "içmek", it is added "to drink", so;

çay içmek istiyor musun?

sounds like more "do you want to drink tea now?"

çay içmek ister misin?

is more an offer; "would you like to drink tea?"

 

After these explanations;

when I read your questions, I imagine some stories.

Çay istiyor musun?

The story is; I am going to get tea, do you want tea too? so I am asking it in Turkish; "Çay istiyor musun?"

Çay içmek ister misin?

I am host, you are welcome to my house. I have tea, but not boiled (cooked) yet. So I offer you tea and I may boil it if you want. So I ask:

"Çay içmek ister misin?"

Does this explanation make sense?
