MOT Tea - a Special Drink in Tran Phu Street of Hoi An (Updated!)
Mot Hoi An is not the most beautifully decorated tea house in Hoi An. It is just a street vendor on Tran Phu street. The owner of this tea shop is a 9X man – Nguyen Huu Xuan (whose name at home is Mot), maybe this is the reason of the tea shop’s name.
Despite of its small space, you would be impressed immediately at first sight. You will be excited with a lovely round bamboo basket full of small ceramic cups with many herbs such as honeysuckle, cinnamon, Luo Han Guo, lemon, lemongrass, etc. which are so attractive that you would order one when you see them.
MOT is very special by its decoration with lotus, herbals as soon as at night.
The price in Mot tea shop is quite cheap – only 12.000 VND for a cup of tea which has little sweet taste of lemon and lemongrass or herbs. Mot is not only delicious and cheap but also charming enough to draw tourist attention. Whenever you order a cup of tea, you will receive a leaf or a lotus petal which makes the cup more artistic.
You should note that Mot does not open all day, only from mid-afternoon onwards. After visiting around the old town, let’s come to Mot and enjoy a cup of herbal tea with lotus scent to feel the peace inside your heart.
