  • Although it's sub zero outside, you're about to experience a warmth that's uniquely Turkish. You and your partner step into a small, cozy, dimly lit tea house. A friendly local takes you to your private area. Comfortable pillows and blankets await near the slow crackling of the burning ember in the fireplace.
  • Now, it's time to start the enchanting tea tasting. Your host introduces you to different types of traditional teas, from the robust black to green, each with its own distinct flavor and scent. As the hot liquid clears your throat and the warmth settles, long conversations about life, love, and the culture of Istanbul follow.
  • By the end, you'll have delighted in a new cultural experience that has bound you closer with your partner. Ready to enjoy the rest of the day full of warm and cozy feelings.

Preparation steps:

  • Contact a local tea house in advance and reserve a private area for the tea tasting session.
  • Make sure to confirm the varieties of tea that will be presented so you can prepare any health-necessitated adjustments.
  • Dress in comfortable and warm indoor clothing, as you'll most likely be sitting in an air-conditioned environment.

Some tips:

  • Some teas can have more caffeine than coffee, so be mindful of your own tolerance and avoid drinking large quantities.
  • Turkish tea is traditionally served with sugar and often can be very sweet. If you prefer your tea less sweet, make sure to ask your host.
  • To make the date even more immersive, do some research on the history and significance of Turkish tea and share your knowledge with your partner during the tasting.
