A nice speech.

 

I just happened to read an article about çay today. What do kıtlama çay and tavşan kanı çay mean?

 

Kıtlama is a different way to drink tea. You don´t add sugar to the tea but take some piece of sugar (generally special type of sugar), then you hold the sugar in your mouth, and drink tea. Mostly from Erzurum, the city from east side of Turkey.

Tavşan kanı symbolizes the color of the tea. As its meaning: "blood of rabbit", it is generally accepted that color of tea indicates its quality. So you can understand the tea is good if you see this color on its glass (after you brew)
