Uống nước nhớ nguồn

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.

Vietnam tea is bitter. It reflects the hardship of daily life.

And so ... to the tea

At the cafe

Tea (and coffee)

Thai Nguyen tea with long steep time (the leaves are actually left in the pot to stew) and it is always strong, the initial fresh grass bitter flavour is replaced by a long, long, sweet aftertaste, with a deep like fresh bamboo shoot. This is taken after a triple sized espresso size coffee shot known as cai phe da.
