‘s trip to
Well she just came back from Istanbul (another adventure!) last week…
…with beautiful photos. Tea culture in Istanbul is inspiring. Or like D said…
“The tea culture – more like lifestyle – is nothing I have ever seen. Not even England can compete! People stop for tea anywhere, everywhere. From policemen to fishermen.”
Turkish tea (
) is a black tea from the Black Sea coast. It’s brewed in a double-stacked kettle (
) and served with plenty of sugar in a tulip-shaped glass.
In Kadakoy, D found a small park by Galata Bridge where vendors can set up tea “shops” without permits. Not legal, no matters ;)
I wish the tea culture in NYC was this vibrant. Could you imagine stopping for a glass in Washington Square Park? Now
would be amazing.
