Orientea has been opened for about a year, serving and selling traditional Eastern tea. A special thing about this shop is that it is located upstairs in an old apartment, a hip trend of Vietnamese youth's hangout spots. The store is divided into two spaces: one with a counter to make your order and payment and shelves displaying sell items like tea packages, tea sets and utilities, and another room with wooden tables and chairs to enjoy your tea.

Song Hy Tea House

Located just a few steps away from the War Remnant Museum in Ho Chi Minh, this small tea house sells dried tea leaves and intricated handcrafted teapots. Depends on the origin and materials made, the prices reflect the quality. You can stop by and have a look at the teapots and enjoy complimentary tea brewed in front of you with mung bean cake as a side condiment. The place was marked as closed on Google but we last visited this tea house in July 2018 and it was still in operation.
