Drinks

  • How to make good Turkish tea

  • Tea must be stored in closed packages in such a way that it is not affected by humidity and external odors.

  • For best results, lime-free water, a tea-kettle and a porcelain teapot are recommended.

  • After rinsing the clean teapot with lukewarm water, put in one teaspoon of tea per person, whilst the water is boiled in the tea-kettle.

  • Boiling water from the tea-kettle is poured into the teapot.

  • The flame under the tea-kettle is turned down and the teapot is placed onto the tea-kettle so that it boils with the steam underneath.

  • The tea must brew for 10-15 minutes.

  • The tea is then ready for pouring into the small tea glasses, usually 1/3 or 1/4 full depending how dark or how light you prefer your tea. The tea glass is then topped-up with hot water from the tea-kettle. The pot of tea should then be drunk within 30 minutes.
