In Turkey, everyone drinks tea. In any weather, even under the blazing sun, Turks drink their traditional black chai (çay), typically along the side of the road from small local snack shops. Usually taken without milk (but often with a sugar cube) the tea is often served in tulip-shaped transparent glasses (which are also meant to represent the curves of a woman’s body) and sipped alongside Turkish street fare, like kebabs.
