Çay, Turkish Tea

Turkish tea, çay (pronounced chai), is a black tea which is consumed without milk.  It is an important part of the Turkish culture, offered to household and shopping guests as part of Turkish hospitality. The tea is served piping hot in small, tulip-shaped glasses.  I thought it was essential to taste the tea with a side of baklava as you can see from the photo below.
