Delighted, kind sir, may we get cake too??

Coffee my usual choice but developed a liking for "Lady Grey" whilst in that country where a "cuppa "is produced at every possible moment. :)

And I am not a trekkie.

Turkish way...

Looks like the way that wine might be served. Very elegant.

During Ottoman Era, tea was really scarce and was brought from far east by a few traders. so, it was the drink of the palace and was really valuable. and when first tea plants established in the Turkey during republic period, people met with the tea for the first time and they kept the traditions of the palace, as it was the only "example". so, it is still served in tiny glasses, we call "ince belli" (thin waist), and often used in poetic metaphors like a lady.

This may not work anymore - tried to send pic to Arrow and ended up with gobbledy gook. Everytime I put updates in life gets more difficult!
