No need to introduce too much because octopus tea has long been a golden name in the beverage industry. Especially in the hot summer, this drink is even more attractive than many times. The “addictive” point of kumquat tea is the mild sour taste of kumquat combined with the mild acrid taste of tea to create an extremely light and refreshing beverage.

If you are too familiar with the original tea, you can stop by the Tuan Kiet sidewalk tea cart to try the new pureed honey iced tea. Here, the tea essence will be brewed first, then poured into a blender with ice. With this feat, when drinking the ice will mix with the kumquat tea, bringing a cooler feeling. In addition, because the restaurant uses quite dense core and honey to create sweetness, when drinking, there will be a slight sting in the neck, but this feeling will immediately disappear.
