Weakly rotating turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection was studied experimentally and numerically. With increasing rotation and large enough Rayleigh number a supercritical bifurcation from a turbulent state with nearly rotation-independent heat transport to another with enhanced heat transfer is observed at a critical inverse Rossby number 1/Roc 0.4. The strength of the large-scale convection roll is either enhanced or essentially unmodified depending on parameters for 1/Ro
