Which beverage is your favorite? If you have not tasted boza then I strongly recommend you to drink a cup of it. So, here is another reason of visiting Istanbul: Boza!
Boza, also known as bosa, is a popular drink in Istanbul. It is a type of fermented beverage also known in Kazakhstan, Albania, Montenegro and Bulgaria. There are various types of boza but originally it is a malt drink. It has low alcohol content and a thick consistency. It has been prohibited by some Ottoman Sultans as it contained a degree of alcohol, though a minimum degree.
In 1867, Haci Ibrahim and Hacı Sadık established their first boza shop in Istanbul. The shop is still in business today. Boza is also sold on the streets by street traders. Especially during long winter nights, they walk around the city and try to sell boza kept in their churns.
Boza tastes great but this is not the only reason of its popularity. It is believed by many that drinking boza enlarges women’s breasts. It is also considered as a drink that helps you to get over some illnesses such as sore throat and flue.
