Why is Turkish Tea Served in a Glass?
For those who have never savored traditional Turkish tea, the notion of drinking from a clear glass container might sound a little odd, but there is a reason behind it. The Turkish people take their tea drinking extremely serious and take time to steep their tea to the desired level. Turkish people want to know they are receiving their tea at the correct steeped level and a clear glass allows them to tell how well steeped their tea is. The darker the color, the stronger or heavier the tea.
