Turkish Rize Tea - what's that? So, you've probably heard of Turkish coffee right? That strong coffee served in little cups? What's this Turkish tea or Rize tea then? Well, it's black tea from the Rize region, and made in special teapots that are in some way similar to Russian samovars (except they don't look much like samovars!).
The tea is made really strong, and then water is added to dilute it according to each person's taste. It's drunk without milk but can be sweetened with sugar. And this tea is served in glasses, on saucers. Looking good!
Do you love Turkish Rize tea?
Yes, those glasses are beautiful!
I never taste it, I am Indonesian and never come to Turkey but what amazes me much is these amazing tulip-shaped glasses. I'm so longing for it :)
Turkish apple tea is certainly a favorite in Turkey.
It sounds like this is rather strong black tea, which is not surprising, given that they like their coffee strong too. I'm surprised I'd never heard about this tea. When I went to Turkey we drank Turkish apple tea.
I like those glasses.
I have never heard of it. I enjoy learning about different foods and drinks.
Yes, those pretty glasses can certainly be used for other beverages!
I've never had Turkish Rize tea but I'd like to try it as I prefer tea over coffee. The glasses are so pretty, they can be used for lots of beverages too. I'm thinking...eggnog!
