A çaydanlık is a tea kettle designed specifically to make Turkish tea. The lower part is used to boil the water and the upper part, sometimes called demlik is used for the concentrated tea. The body is traditionally made of brass or copper, occasionally also silver or gold. Though, recently, çaydanlık is also made from stainless steel, aluminium, or ceramics with plastic, steel or aluminium handles.
Tea is poured first from the 'demlik' and then diluted to the desired level with plain boiling water from the lower tea kettle.
