As the Turks say, "a conversation without a cup of tea is like the night sky without the moon". This embodies the feeling, essence, and mood of the Turks when it comes to tea. 

The Turkish word for tea is çay, influenced by the Chinese word for tea, cha. Today, Türkiye is one of the world's largest markets for tea. The International Tea Committee has reported that Türkiye has the highest per capita consumption of tea in the world. Follow CGTN's reporter to explore Türkiye's tea culture!
