Tea culture

Tea TurkeyDrinking tea is an important and ineffaceable part of the Turkish everyday life. Men often sit in tearooms for hours to drink tea, to chat or to play Nine Men's Morris. The tea belongs to people's everyday life and is enjoyed every time of the day.

For the tea's preparation, a special can is used, in which fresh tea is available in different strengths all the time. The tea is served in special tea glasses, which can conserve the tea's flavour for a long time. Drinking tea is very important especially for the public life and the hospitality. That is why tea is drunk seldom drunk alone but always in company.
