Turks introduced coffee into the western world, that’s why it is called Turkish coffee. Coffee is not grown in Turkey. But tea is grown in the Black Sea region of the country.
Turks drink a lot of tea with an average of 15 glasses a day. Loose tea is used to prepare tea, and two tea pots are used. One for boiling water and another for tea. Later it is diluted while serving.
Tea glasses are traditional tiny tulip-shaped glasses.
