The Largest Tea-Drinking Countries Around the Globe


2. In Turkey…

The Turkish also love their tea, which is the most popular hot beverage (even compared to coffee, which is extremely pricy) in Turkey as well as its neighbouring nations. The taste of Turkish tea, which is almost always black tea or herbal in nature with no milk, is likely as exquisite as the presentation. Turkish tea is served in dainty tulip glasses, which display the brew’s unique hue.

Turkish black tea has been linked by several studies to a reduced risk of obesity and diabetes, largely thanks to the healthy dose of antioxidants in each glass. For instance, a study from Boston University’s School of Medicine monitored the tea drinking habits of 66 men for a period of 4-months during which time participants either drank 4-cups of black tea each day or a placebo. The findings proved that drinking black tea improved blood vessel functioning, and lowered stroke and heart attack risk over the long run.
