Turkish Tea

Turkish Tea
Turkish Çay (pronounced Chai) is a black tea that is drank without milk from a small glass. tea is produced in the Black Sea region where there is a mild climate with a high rainfall and has fertile soil. The tea is prepared using two stacked kettles called a çaydanlık which are specially made for the purpose; water is brought to a boil in the lower large kettle and dry loose tea placed in the smaller top kettle and once the water boils is poured into the top kettle and refilled with cold water and brought back to a boil. The tea is made very strong and when serving is poured into the tea glass and diluted to the taste of the consumer and can be dark “koyu” or light “açık”, and small cubes of beet sugar “kesme şeker” can be added.
Turkey produces 6.4% of the world’s total tea making it one of the largest tea markets, and 2.5kg of tea is consumed per person making it the highest capita of consumption in the world which is followed by the UK whose capita is 2.1kg per person.
