    “Boss, what time does  your stall close? Well, I have no door to shut”.  It is simply a joking talk, but partly brings us a specific view on street drinking in Vietnam. Although regarded as an illegal action in many countries, for Vietnamese people, iced tea drinking on the pavement has become a cultural characteristic in fast-paced dynamic cities, particularly Hanoi, as a cultural hub in the North of Vietnam. The image of sipping iced green tea on street or in the park is far much familiar to the people here.

    You have a wide choice of tea, depending on each’s habit and hobby. If you are not a fan of green tea with a strong and bitter taste, branch out lemon iced tea (tra chanh). Its typical characteristic is being served with lemon and sugar in a bigger glass. Of course, in summer days, it is the No.1 choice to cool down the heat of the tropical country.
    For seeking a delicious glass of tea, choosing a popular destination is really necessary. Shops in Dao Duy Tu, Hang Bac and Hang Ngang in Old Quarter is preferable than ever in Hanoi. However, we have to pay about 10000VND or more in such a foreign tourist areas.
