VIETNAM, Moc Chau – With a 2,000-year history, Vietnam is considered one of the world’s oldest tea planting nations. The region’s terroir, production methods and cultivars give rise to several distinctive qualities not found in teas from other regions.
A popular style of Vietnamese tea is tea scented with flowers, such as chrysanthemum and jasmine. But for a sure hit, look for lotus tea (tra sen), a heady pairing of luscious fragrance and the refreshing sweetness of tea. Try it anywhere in Vietnam, from street-side stalls to upscale teahouses.
