Tea is just as common of a drink in Vietnam as coffee. Well, green tea that is. Vietnamese black tea is used for exports. But the green tea is a local favorite. At most restaurants, you get Vietnamese tea free with every meal. Some restaurants serve better local tea than others. Sometimes, it can be quite bland. Other times, the tea can be deliciously tasty. Subtle, but tasty. I hope that’s not too confusing. Anyway, we zigzagged our way through plenty of tea plantations on that 5-day motorcycle trip.
