Turkish Tea (çay) on the boat from Istanbul to Yalova, Turkey

We just crossed the Sea of Marmara from Istanbul to Yalova. It was a beautiful sunny day. The only Turkish tea (çay)in the boat was served in paper cups for safety reasons. But the advertisement continues on the traditional tulip cup.

The çay costs 1.25 Turkish Lira or about 0.70 US dollar


In the morning it is traditional to have the Turkish tea with simit, a crisp twisted ring bread covered with sesame seeds. The simit can be broken in pieces and eaten with the tea.

My friend Zek and I were enjoying the Turkish tea and simit on the Turkish way


While we were drinking tea we enjoyed the view and the seagulls happily flying…

Seagulls approach the boat to enjoy small bites of simit thrown in the air
