Turkiye sherbet isn’t tea – although Turkiye is one of the top tea consuming countries in the world – but a refreshing fruit based beverage. Also known as Ottoman sherbet, it might have become so popular in Turkiye because the consumption of alcohol was forbidden during the reign of the Ottoman Empire. The name sherbet is probably a derivation of the Arabic words shariba or sharba, which mean “to drink.”
