Tea in Tashkent

Tea in Tashkent

A young boy watches an old Uzbek woman, probably his grandmother, put a steaming hot glass of tea to her lips; in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

The youngster holds a pot aloft and offers the woman, with a red woolen scarf over her head, another refill. It is a sunny April day, in Central Asia, but far from warm.

Open-air Uzbek tea houses can be found in many of Tashkent’s parks. Although it isn’t grown or produced in Uzbekistan, tea is considered the country’s national drink.
