The Vietnamese love drinking tea with their meals. That’s one of the many things I noticed while on this food trip. Water was almost never served to us, but tea was always on our table. My friends say that this is because tea aids in digestion better than water, which is a pretty valid reason. Among all the types of tea we had with our meals, though, my favorite is trà chanh or lime tea. A cooling and thirst-quenching drink that’s especially popular with the younger crowd, it’s made with the simplest ingredients (tea, water, lime, and honey or sugar) and is enjoyed with street side snacks.
