Welcome to YQtravelling’s FoodFriday. The day of the week when I show off some of the lovely eats I had while travelling.
Today we’re sipping some unique tea in Turkey.
When I was in Turkey, my most memorable drink was apple tea. The drink is served in a small traditional glass and is usually pale yellow in color although there are florescent green ones too.
At first I tried to guess how they make apple tea. Do they boil the apples and serve the liquid or do they first dry the apples and then boil them?
I had guessed that real apples were involved because I sometimes see bits of solid things inside.
Then one day, at one of the hostels, mom and I discovered that apple tea is made from powder. Just add hot water to taste.
At the weekly markets in Ephesus, mom bargained with a tea powder seller and bought half a kilo of apple tea solution.
However, I was more interested in the “Sex Tea”.
PS Apple tea seemed more like a tourist-thing than a local-thing. Locals drinks loads of black tea.

Turkish coffee is pretty famous. A muddy thick bitter drink needing sugar to sweeten it. I find it an acquired taste.
I’ve blocked Turkish coffee from my memories because it was too bitter. >o<
