The Challenge

According to World Health Organization’s articles, it is underlined that daily sugar consumption should be reduced to 5% of the daily calorie needs to avoid from non-communicable diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and dental caries. In Turkey, Ministry of Health has also issued a circular about encouraging citizens to use ‘one sugar cube’ for a cup of tea in 2014.

The Solution

Tekşeker aims to help users to reduce the amount of sugar used along with the tea among Turkish tea drinkers. With its surprising and provocative form that inspired by traditional Turkish tea glass, tekşeker provides a room for just one sugar cube.
