Welcome TEA set

For Azerbaijanis tea is associated with warmth, hospitality, tradition says that one should not allow the guest to leave the house without at least one cup of tea.

Tea in Azerbaijan is served freshly brewed, hot and strong. It typically has a bright colour and is served in crystal or any other glasses or cups. Azerbaijanis often use traditional armudu (pear-shaped) glass. Tea is served continuously when there are guests or when there is an interesting conversation. For Azerbaijanis tea with milk is uncommon. According to a common belief, drinking tea with lump sugar instead of sand sugar comes from the medieval period, when rulers who were afraid of being poisoned checked their tea by dunking a piece of sugar in a beverage – it was believed that the poison would react to the sugar). Along with aromatic tea huge variety of traditional sweets, dry fruits, nuts and jams are offered.

Armudu Glass

There is a long-standing tea drinking culture in Azerbaijan. Tea serving is an important part of Azerbaijani culture. The Armudu is a traditional drinking glass made from a variety of materials, such as porсelain, stained glass and silver.

It got its name from the pear-shape, narrower in the middle and wider at the top and bottom. The shape allows the tea at the top of the glass to cool ready for drinking, while the bottom half stays hot. If you are a connoisseur of art, you can purchase the handmade armudu with floral pattern or buta.
