Together with coffee, tea in Vietnam is appreciated and loved by local people. To enjoy tea and peaceful atmosphere, Vietnamese choose tea houses that take significant place in their culture. Vietnamese tea houses differ from each other by style, type, price, and other factors. Here we want to tell you about 3 main styles of Vietnamese tea houses so that you could choose the most suitable one to have a good time.
Traditional tea houses with enjoyable and peaceful atmosphere are for those who want to escape from the hustle and rush of everyday life. Usually, they have the architecture of an ancient house in the Vietnamese rural area. Traditional tea houses in Vietnam are decorated with pots of flowers, furniture made from wood (especially bamboo), and bamboo trees. There you can sit under the porch and observe the smoke from the teapot.
They serve a wide range of traditional Vietnamese teas from different regions of the country: green tea, scented tea with natural flowers (lotus, chamomile, jasmine, rose, and others). Some of Vietnamese tea houses serve specialty teas of ancient tea trees which are more than a hundred years old.
You can not only enjoy traditional tea there, but also listen to live music, participate in tea culture activities, seminars, and talks. You will have the opportunity to taste local desserts such as lotus heart tea paired with longan or jasmine tea used with green bean cake.
English style is loved for its formality, peace, elegance, and noble beauty.
Afternoon tea in this kind of tea houses usually include one pot of hot tea, sandwiches, sugar, pastries and cakes, scones with clotted cream and jam, an hourglass. You can taste cranberry macarons, anise-flavored chocolate tarts, ginger pomelo cream puffs, and other pastries. All the snacks are put on beautiful three-tier cake stands. The tea set is decorated in vintage style with china porcelain or a nice silver pot.
