Look it’s 1680, way past the Golden Age of Islam, but Ottoman Turkey is still going ok. A little overshadowed maybe by Europe’s renaissance (and anyway in a couple decades or so will be The Tulip Era – their temporary high before the drop) and our historical bias for very Western history. Trade is still happening, which is how Zeynel got this tea (my canon is that he got it from one of his carpet sales; an international customer!! Whoo wee!!).

  1. Oh… thank you for letting us know the historical era and context. I was just discussing the Golden Age of Islam and the Ottoman Empire the other day, maybe it’s fate that I’m finally reading your comic now instead of when I saw a retweet of it a month ago. ;;

    1. Sure!! I am happy to share anything that may help educate my readers, while they are going through the story (I’ve always loved learning about new things)! I hope you have a good experience reading this!
