This tea harvested from young buds of tea plants in the region of Rize in Turkey. This typical Turkish tea has a very delicate floral aroma and is low in tannins. Making it pleasant to taste with or without sweetening and not so bitter. This low tannin count makes Turkish tea perfect for extended steeping, letting the tea infuse gradually. Often prepared in the Turkish tea brewing apparatus known as “çaydanlık” or “semaver/samovar”, Turkish tea is gradually brewed under indirect heat into a strong brew which is often diluted to preferred strength with hot water and sweetened with beetroot sugar or honey.
Caykur Tea is the leading tea producer of Turkey and is state-owned. With plantations in the northeastern city of Rize by the Black Sea coast, Caykur tea produces more than half of all Turkish tea consumed in Turkey, which is the highest per capita in the world! The cultivation process is stringent and heavily controlled as Turkish law has a mandate on the production licensing and importing of tea produce. Caykur tea meets all of the criteria and has state of the art facilities with organic production certification awarded by Swiss authorities in 2013.
Tea culture in Turkey is not limited to black tea, thanks to Turkey’s ideal climate. Many more herbal and fruit-flavored teas are consumed throughout Turkey. Flavors often enjoyed include mint, linden, apple, sage, oregano, citrus fruits, wild herbs, floral brews such as chamomile and melisa and many more. You can find out more about these teas in our Turkish Herbal Teas section, including Turkish apple tea by Dogadan, Turkey’s favorite herbal and fruit tea brand.
