For thousands of years, Iranians have been famous for being huge tea drinkers, but there is more the country has to offer in term of beverages. Fruit juices and several other refreshing beverages are a crucial part of Iranians diet and culture. Some people believe that consuming them would bring health and happiness. Perhaps because alcohol is forbidden in Iran, juice bars are the most popular places for refreshing drinks among locals. Walking through any city in Iran, you can see a huge number of stalls selling freshly squeezed fruit juice.

Iranians love their fruit juices and due to their low cost and health benefits, most people drink them every day. The busiest time of the day for juice bars is between 17:00 and 24:00, when temperatures drop and people fill up the streets to go for their evening strolls and picnics.
