Nowadays tea is drunk even more widely than coffee. It is served plain, in small glasses, with or without sugar.

In Anatolia the “kirtlama” fashion of drinking it is common – a cube of sugar is held in the mouth to sweeten the tea as it is drunk. Kirtlama addicts can drink three or four cups of tea with only one lump of sugar lasting through it all.
