Turkish tea -- what is it?

Can anyone explain how Turkish tea differs from other loose-leaf teas? My mom picked some up in a little Turkish market last week, and we were shocked by how cheap it was -- $3 a pound. We're used to paying $15-$20 for good English breakfast tea. Is there anything in it that isn't tea, some kind of filler? We haven't had time to open it yet or try the double-boiler teakettle system you're supposed to use it with, but I'm wondering if any Hounds have experience with it....thanks!
