Herbal tea is a really popular type of tea in Vietnam. Due to many different herbs growing up here, Vietnamese often use them in food and drinks. If you are eating a Vietnamese meal, there will be small herb strips elegantly lacing your dish. The main features of herbs are their health benefits and beautiful appearance.

Vietnam has the best climate for growing herbs. Peppermint, artichoke, ginger – all of them need sunshine and warmth. Vietnamese gardens always have brilliant displays: the herbs look bright and are full of contrast.

Vietnamese love experimenting with tea tastes. That’s why many varieties of herbal tea exist here, including the three most popular below:

Ginger tea

People have been using ginger in the treatment of diseases for thousands of years. Plain ginger tea is neither sweet nor savory. It's more herbal in flavor, like a somewhat grassy tea without the bitterness. Ginger teas are often mixed with citrus and other fruits, which blend well with the earthy taste.

Artichoke tea

Artichoke tea is made from the flower, leaf and stem of the artichoke. The taste is smooth, nutty, earthy and sweet. I definitely would not recommend adding milk or sugar to this brew – the flavour is full and complete enough as it is.

Lemongrass tea

This type of tea tastes so fresh and citrusy. Lemongrass tea has a light aroma and appearance. It is a perfect evening drink, creating calm and attuning to the thoughts.
