About Turkish Tea

Turkish tea, known as “çay“, pronounced Chai, is a type of tea made from loose black tea leaves, in a stacked kettle apparatus called çaydanlık“. This popular tea is brewed slowly and often diluted to taste with hot water as the long and slow brewing process makes the tea very strong. Served in small traditional glasses with matching small plates and cutlery, Turkish tea is enjoyed without milk. Turkey is the biggest consumer of tea in the world with more than 7.5kg’s of tea consumed per capita according to 2014 figures. Most popular varieties are Rize Tea, Ceylon and Bergamot/Earl Grey.

    Turkish tea is the best. You have to make sure you brew it just right, steeped well and figure out how strong you want it, then dilute with hot water. I can drink this all day, like the Turks do :))

    Buy Turkish tea all the time! Rinse the tea leaves with warm water then steep it well and dilute with 3-4 part water per 1 part tea it’s the best!
