Tea time in Mandalay

“A well brewed cup can make you feel wiser, braver and more optimistic” George Orwell – Tea is an essential part of the Myanmar cultural life, and Mandalay has some of the best tea shops in the country. There is a pleasant rhythm to the life of the Mandalay tea shops, and the whole day can be lost inside them. Tea is served honey-thick with condensed milk, and is washed down with Oolong tea. Each tea shop has its own specialty, and i favored having breakfast at the corner tea shop near my hotel, Minthiha, where Banana pancake and Shan noodles became my breakfast and lunch staple.
