Lesson 6: Turkish Bath & Tea

Last Updated on January 8, 2024

In lesson 5, you have learned directions and place names in Turkish, and now you are ready to describe and ask about a place. It’s time to take you a step further.

In Turkish culture, both Turkish Baths and tea have very special places.

You can think of a hamam as an enormous shower, but what is different is that it covers the whole room! Moreover, it has some differences compared to a normal shower; you aren't alone and have other people around. Some old and luxurious Turkish houses still have a Turkish hamam.

As for tea, it is one of the things Turkey is famous for. It especially grows in the Karadeniz region. Karadeniz has a rainy and humid climate, making growing plants such as tea easier. It is one of the important economic sources of Turkey, as well. It is important to point out that tea is not only a beverage for Turkish people but also a social activity representing hospitality.
