Euronews, a European, multilingual news television channel, has broadcasted a video footage highlighting new series of Postcards from Azerbaijan, the country’s deep attachment to tea, an almost sacred ritual that goes back centuries.

The channel notes that strong black tea is served for almost every occasion, and a lot of it comes from the region of Lankaran-Astara in the south of the country.

Euronews’ Seamus Kearney reports: “It’s the first picking of the season here on the local plantations, which lie between the Caspian Sea and the mountains, and where the subtropical climate and humidity are just right for growing tea.”

Reporter stresses that the leaves grown in this region are for domestic consumption, but they are also exported.

It has been also noted in footage on traditional tea houses all over Azerbaijan.

Ilqar Hzimov from the Lankaran Tourism Information Centre told Postcards: “There are a lot of minerals and vitamins and Lankaran tea is very good for the health of everybody.”
