A well-balanced, savory blend of Turkish black tea and bergamot.

Turkish bergamot tea is a traditional Turkish drink, made from black tea leaves and bergamot zest. Bergamot is a citrus fruit native to Italy, cultivated for its aromatic notes. During infusion, the citrus and floral notes of bergamot mingle with the deep flavors of black tea, to create a unique, flavorful cup. Bergamot adds a distinctive aroma to the tea, awakening the senses even before the first sip.

  • Aromatic notes: fragrant citrus flavor

  • Reputation: refreshing and stimulating
  • Packaging: 1 kg. Loose tea leaves for a richer aroma

Choosing Turkish bergamot teas with loose tea leaves means you can control the infusion process. You can adjust the quantity of leaves, the infusion time and the water temperature to adapt the intensity and flavor of the tea to your preferences. This tea can also be prepared with a samowar. Or simply use a teapot with a built-in filter.

Preparation method:

Traditionally, Turkish tea is prepared using two stacked teapots, called "çaydanlık", specially designed for the purpose. The larger teapot, at the bottom, is used to bring the water to the boil, while the smaller teapot, in which the loose tea leaves are infused in boiling water, is placed on top. This infusion process produces a traditional Turkish tea with a robust taste. At serving time, the strong tea concentrate is diluted with hot water according to personal preference: a strong infusion (in Turkish: koyu, literally "dark") or a milder infusion (in Turkish: açık, literally "light").

Turkish tea is traditionally enjoyed in small tulip-shaped glasses called "ince belli" (which can be translated as "fine-cut"). These glasses not only keep the tea hot, but also enhance its rich copper glow.

In the Turkish tea tradition, it is common practice to accompany the drink with small cubes of beet sugar.

The tea leaves used for Turkish tea are generally black tea leaves.
It is recommended to use around 2 teaspoons of tea leaves for one cup of tea.

Turkish tea is traditionally infused for 10 to 15 minutes.
