Seminar Series on the Building Blocks of Turkish Cuisine: “Tea”

February 10, 2015, MSA

In the seminar, despite not having a long-standing history in our country, we examined the journey of Tea, which has taken its place at the top of our hospitality list, and what makes it indispensable around the world. Our first speaker was Sam Jackson, brand manager and tea expert of Whittard of Chelsea, a tea brand that has been in existence for over a century. We listened to his insights on the history of tea, the five different tea families, and tea cultures around the world. Our second speaker, tea researcher Dr. Mustafa Duman, shed light on the characteristics, varieties, history, place in the world, and brewing methods of Turkish Tea.
