Tea, paddy, and cit­rus fruits fes­ti­val opens in Lankaran

Azer News - - Country Guide - By Aygul Sal­manova

Lankaran, one of the most pic­turesque cor­ners of Azer­bai­jan dis­tin­guished from other cities by its ex­cel­lent cli­mate and un­for­get­table del­i­ca­cies, holds an amaz­ing tea, paddy, and cit­rus fruits fes­ti­val.

At the fes­ti­val held at the Hey­dar Aliyev Me­mo­rial Park and or­ga­nized by the Lankaran City Ex­ec­u­tive Power, the del­i­ca­cies of the city are be­ing ex­hib­ited in the pavil­ions such as "Our tea has a name", "Lankarani sweets - our taste", "We gather beauty drop by drop", "Build new Lankaran", "Who wants to live in par­adise, come to Lankaran" and other.

Par­tic­i­pants of the fes­ti­val have the op­por­tu­nity to get ac­quainted with the va­ri­eties of tea in Lankaran, learn how to breed the true nat­u­ral tea, taste dishes made of more than 50 va­ri­eties of rice such as "Hashimi", "Sadri", "Campo", as well as other de­li­cious dishes of Lankaran cui­sine - poul­try and fish dishes.

Other prod­ucts pro­duced in Lankaran and folk art sam­ples are ex­hib­ited at the pavil­ions opened along the park.

A con­cert with fa­mous masters’ per­for­mance will be held at the end of the fes­ti­val.

If you ask an Azer­bai­jani about the most fruit­ful re­gion of his coun­try, he/she will prob­a­bly name Lankaran. The agri­cul­ture of the re­gion is mostly known for its cit­rus and sub­trop­i­cal fruit-grow­ing, and it is no co­in­ci­dence that Lankaran is called the land of cit­rus plants, such as or­anges, tan­ger­ines, lemons, and oth­ers.

True mir­a­cles of na­ture are wait­ing for ev­ery­one who will visit this part of Azer­bai­jan. Most peo­ple would think: what is un­usual about the bushes of tea? This is how many of the guests of the coun­try think un­til they step on the ground of Lankaran and see the end­less plan­ta­tions of tea bushes.

Tea plan­ta­tions in the val­leys of Lankaran await guests who can en­joy the mag­nif­i­cent scenery, the beauty of the moun­tains and val­leys, the cor­dial­ity and hos­pi­tal­ity of the lo­cals. And be sure to taste Azer­bai­jani tea, which will give cheer­ful­ness and health.

Lankaran is still fa­mous for its paddy pro­duc­tion. The fra­grant Lankaran rice has been the most valu­able food for lo­cals for cen­turies. Rice prod­ucts of ‘Sadri’, ‘An­barbu’, ‘Hashemi’, ‘Hasani’, ‘Akulya’ and other sorts of rice are dis­tin­guished with their aroma, taste and abun­dance.
