1. What is Vietnamese sweet tea?

In the past, Vietnamese sweet tea was a simple drink made from green tea and sugar, so it is less bitter than other teas. Over time, Vietnamese people found different herbs, plants, or fruits to mix with tea. For example, sweetgrass, artichoke, or arhat fruit, are now grown in many parts of Vietnam to make sweeteners and medicine.

Nowadays, the youth often use black tea combined with sugar, syrup, or other fresh fruits to make Vietnamese sweet tea. Vietnamese people drink iced sweet tea, however, it can be served in hot water.

According to research, sweet tea brings many health benefits, such as: stabilizing blood sugar, preventing cancer, anti-aging, etc. Thus the tea can approach many ages: from children to adults.
