One of the most common sights you see on your visit to Turkey is the tea house where you will find people, mostly men - drinking hot steaming tea from tulip shaped glasses. Turkey is the fifth largest tea-drinking nation in the world and has a distinct way of making and drinking tea that makes it unique.

With the change of times, the traditional tea houses are giving way to pubs that serve other interesting drinks like the 'Boza', but the charm of the old tea houses remain. Make sure you do not miss this unique form of hospitality when you are on a visit to Turkey.
