"Welcome to my Teahouse" Rangoon Local Custom Tip by Hewer
Rangoon Local Customs: 33 reviews and 44 photos
Whenever you order tea at a teahouse in Yangon, the staff will automatically bring bean curd cakes and a few cigarettes to accompany your order. Of course you don't have to smoke and eat all of this - you are charged on consumption.
The hot tea served in the teahouses is made using condensed milk. You get drink a free thermos of green tea after your cup also. It's a great atmosphere sitting there at night and enjoying a bit of chit chat.
For a cup of tea, two or three cups of green tea, a cake and (dare I say) a couple if cigarettes, expect to pay about 200 kyat (23 cents).
