DISCOVER VASCOBELO TURKISH APPLE TEA
Turkish Apple is one of the most popular types of fruit tea. In contrast to other teas, it is an infusion drink made by steeping dried pieces of apple and other fruits into boiling water. It will transport you to the magical charm and fragrant climate of Turkey. It is anything like you have ever tasted before.
QUICK HISTORY OF TURKISH TEA
Worldwide, tea is the most consumed beverage, after water. Compared to Chinese and Indian teas, the history of Turkish tea is relatively young as tea culture only began in the late 1930s in Rize and the nearby provinces of Trabzon and Artvin.
Before WWI, coffee was an integral part of Turkish culture. Drinking coffee was an essential social custom as it gave people a reason to meet and talk. But when the Ottoman Empire fell, coffee became too expensive to consume. Hence, the nation began to embrace a new beverage initially consumed by its neighbours from the West. And tea has quickly become part of Turkey’s social practices. Nowadays, Turkish people enjoy their teas all day long, and the beverage is part of most trials and rites of life in the country. For instance, you will always find a pot of tea ready to drink or offer to guests in every home.
Moreover, the country ranks as one of the highest per capita tea consumers globally. Turkey now counts more than 230 tea factories and produces between 6 and 10% of the globe’s tea.
