Turkish Coffe & Turkish Tea Legacy
! Tasting Tour Everday in Istanbul !

Turksih coffe & Turkish Tea Legacy in Istanbul.

Turkish coffee is prepared by boiling finely powdered roast coffee beans in a pot, possibly with sugar, and serving it into a cup, where the dregs settle. It is common throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Caucasus, and the Balkans, and in their expatriate communities and restaurants in the rest of the world.

Coffeehouse culture is highly developed in the former Ottoman world, and this is the dominant style of preparation.

In Turkey, it was known simply as kahve until instant coffee was brought in during the 1980s. Today younger generations refer to it as Türk kahvesi (Turkish coffee).

Outside of Turkey, it is often called "Turkish coffee" in the local language:kafe turke (Albanian). It is also called "Armenian Coffee", "Greek coffee", and "Cypriot coffee", in Armenia, Greece, and Cyprus, respectively.

Turkish Tea The Turks evolved their own way of making and drinking the black tea which became a way of life for Turkish culture. Wherever people go in Turkey, tea or coffee will be offered as a sign of friendship and hospitality, at homes, bazaars and restaurants, before or after a meal.

Turkish tea is full-flavored and too strong to be served in large cups, thus it is always offered in small tulip-shaped glasses which are usually held by the rim, in order to save the drinker's fingertips from being burned, as the tea is served boiling hot.

Turkish tea drinkers often add sugar, but milk is not traditional. Turkish tea may be served either lighter (weaker) or darker (stronger) depending on the drinker's taste, as Turkish tea is made by pouring some very strong tea into the glass, then diluting it with hot water to the desired strength.

Serious tea-drinking people (generally Turks) usually go to a coffee and tea house where they serve it with a samovar (semaver) so they can refill their glasses themselves as much as they want.
