Happiness in three steps – how to prepare Turkish tea
Turkish çay is prepared with a samovar, a tea urn which originated in Russia. It consists of two pots which fit together perfectly.
- The lower pot is filled with water and heated.
- The upper pot is then filled with boiling water from the lower pot. The pots are then placed one on top of the other and positioned on the stove.
- The tea is left to brew until all the floating leaves have settled and the leaves at the bottom have risen.
When serving, the strength of the tea can be adjusted to suit individual taste by pouring the tea into the glass first and then filling it up with hot water.
