Named after the Japanese word for “tea house,” Cha’ya recently opened its second branch in Moda after the success of its original location in Galata. The shop offers nearly 60 teas as well as authentic teapots, mugs and teacups – we particularly recommend it to those who are in the market for a cast-iron teapot. At Cha’ya, you’ll find a wide variety, from traditional Turkish tea (5 TL) made with a blend of leaves from Arhavi and Tirebolu to an aromatic and fruity Lychee Black from China (Teapot for one 18 TL, for two 25 TL). Let’s also note that the Cha’ya breakfast spread (35 TL per person) comes with unlimited bazlama (flatbread) and katmer (crispy baked pastry served with sugar, clotted cream and pistachios).
