If you’re craving green space then Tearanium isn’t the answer, but it still serves as a pleasant indoor garden in which you can enjoy a nice cuppa iced tea.
A small post for a small place, there isn’t an enormous amount to say about this tiny tearoom. Up on an elevated floor that looks over one of Hanoi’s silliest intersections, Tearanium is filled with pot plants of which no two are alike. There’s a playful black cat with striking yellow eyes straight out of a horror flick, the iced teas are tasty and refreshing, and much of the plant life around you is purchasable. If you think that the playlist of ‘classic’ pop borders on unbearable then feel free to tell them to turn it down. Or turn it off.
On a hot and sunny day Tearanium becomes a steamy greenhouse, which may or may not be intentional given the emphasis on plant cultivation. Better to save this one for a rainy day or a cool evening. Bizarrely, you enter through the gate of Nghia Dung Temple to reach Tearanium and it’s worth having a poke around this well looked after place of worship when you visit. Keep and eye out for the creepy elephant statues.
