Excluding water, tea is the world’s most consumed beverage. It has eastern origins, having arisen in China and has long been associated with good health and calmness. Nowadays, in very general terms there are five basic varieties of tea (black, green, white, oolong and Pu-erh), flavored teas such as earl grey, Jasmine and a wide range of herbal infusions (or tisanes).

For thousands of years, tea has played a central role in Vietnamese life. It is believed to have many benefits such as calming the mind, warding off disease and also playing an important part in religious rituals.

The beverage can be enjoyed hot or cold, and due the health influences, spas and wellness centers around the world commonly serve herbal teas or tisanes before and after treatments. They help detox and cleanse the body.
While some spas may serve standard/’off the shelf” types of infusions, at La Spa we appreciate the importance tea plays in the whole spa experience. Being knowledgeable in the relevance and benefits of the ingredients, we have created two special homemade teas based on our own recipes.
The tea is served before and after each treatment session, with a cold or warm towel (depending on the time of year) and traditional coconut cookies.

We have two signature teas – one for the warm summer months and one for winter period.

Our teas are so popular that we are never surprised when a client returns asking us to fill up a flask with tea for take away. So, don’t hesitate to bring a bottle with you if you want to enjoy some tea later on in your guestroom or at home. We love it when our clients appreciate the tea just as much as the spa treatments.
