Muhammed Hanzala Altun, who runs a grocery store in Kayseri, stated that linden tea, known for its many benefits, is sold for 600 TL.
Linden tea, known as a remedy for flu-like infections among the public, is highly preferred by citizens. It is known to have many benefits, including treating flu-like infections as well as colds. Altun, a grocer who claims that linden tea and ginger are good for flu-like infections, also mentioned that linden tea is the most preferred herb among customers at grocery stores.
Altun mentioned that the price per kilogram of linden tea is 600 TL and said, 'Due to the weather being different than usual, there are different types of flu going around. People have constant complaints such as coughing and runny noses. It's like a pandemic. Hospitals are crowded. Currently, sales of linden tea and ginger are high. Linden tea is selling well because it is known to be beneficial for the flu, colds, and runny noses. We sell 100 grams of linden tea for 60 TL. If we look at it per kilogram, it amounts to 600 TL. Linden tea releases its color and aroma as it boils. It's not a product to be discarded after one steeping. When it cools down, it can be reheated and consumed again. The more it boils, the more aroma it releases. People don't react to the price because 100 grams of linden tea is quite a lot. 100 grams of linden tea is enough for a family of 3 for about a month.'
