Hi friends,
In Turkey.. Tea is drunk from small glasses to enjoy it hot in addition to show its colour, with lumps of beetroot sugar.
Turkish tea is full-flavored and too strong to be served in large cups, thus it is always offered in small tulip-shaped glasses which are usually held by the rim, in order to save the drinker's fingertips from being burned, as the tea is served boiling hot. Turkish tea drinkers often add sugar, but milk is not traditional. Turkish tea may be served either lighter (weaker) or darker (stronger) depending on the drinker's taste, as Turkish tea is made by pouring some very strong tea into the glass, then diluting it with hot water to the desired strength. Serious tea-drinking people (generally Turks) usually go to a coffee and tea house where they serve it with a samovar (Turkish: samever) or urn, so they can refill their glasses themselves as much as they want.

Merhaba Erbil bey,
Şu sıcaklarda seri efil efil esen bir çınar ağacının
gölgesinde içilecek mis kokulu bir çay hiç bir içeceğe
değişilmez. Harika bir kompozisyon. kutlarım.

Nice use of light, a very clean and clear capture of your subject. Perhaps a slight anti-clockwise rotation to have it perpendicular?
