TRABZON - Anadolu Agency
Turkey earned $770,000 through tea exports to Germany from January to August, according to the data compiled by Anadolu Agency.
Follow the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus ($634,000) and the U.S.
Şaban Turgut, deputy chairman of the Eastern Black Sea Exporters Association (DKIB), said the volume of tea exports grew thanks to the increase in brand recognition and promotional activities abroad.
Turgut added that tourism contributed positively to tea exports.
"We received significant demands from the Middle Eastern countries due to the higher number of tourists," Turgut said.
