What is Turkish tea?
Tea is big in Turkey. A great deal of the population admires this drink. When asked to describe a hot summer day, a cold winter day, a visit to family or friends, a quick way to relax and especially a full breakfast, tea will be part of it. People often associate Turkish tea with apple tea, but that’s just a touristic thing. Traditional Turkish tea is black, and it’s consumed massively.
Turks do sometimes fancy herbal tea, such as rosehip (kuşburnu çayı), linden flower (ıhlamur çayı) among other flavours. But those are mostly consumed for their health characteristics and to colour up the taste buds.
