While coffee may be a popular beverage in Turkey (especially prepared in a Turkish fashion), so is tea, which is also prepared in its own particular style in this part of the world.
So what makes this tea "Turkish?" Traditionally, the black tea is made from leaves grown and harvested on the Balck Sea coast. They are eventually brewed in a porcelain teapot and is sometimes dilluted with additional hot water. Cubes of sugar, which can be added to taste, often accompany the small glass cup and spoon.
