  • Description


    My name is Yaşar, I run a tea farm and a tea house in Çifteköprü village, Trabzon region. It's a very rural area and we try to live as naturally as possible, in a non consumerist way. I live with my father Cemal, he's 80. I've been a host in Couchsurfing for several years. The tea house serves traditional Black Sea tea.
