Did you know that Turkey is the world’s fifth largest tea producer? And that Turks have the highest per capita consumption of tea?
A folk saying in Turkey goes, ‘A conversation without tea is like a night sky without a moon.’
Started in 2003 by Pelin Aylangan, a Turkish-American living in Washington DC and Istanbul, ‘Tea in Turkey’ is a multi-faceted project aimed at promoting Turkey and its tea culture.
The project has already educated many people through speaking engagements and articles and will continue to expand in other dimensions.
