***WINNER OF THE 2020 GREAT TASTE AWARD***

 

Traditional Burmese fermented tea leaves with added Chilli, grown and handpicked by small holder farmers, then locally fermented in Pindaya, Shan State, Myanmar.

 

Myanmar’s edible fermented tea, known locally as lahpet, has been enjoyed across the country for centuries. Lahpet is the essential ingredient in the iconic national dish Lahpet Thoke, a tea leaf salad. These famous tea leaves have been fermented for 3 months to produce a unique taste with a strong umami flavour, while also bursting with antioxidants.

 

Lahpet is a healthy and tasty addition to a range of dishes, perfect in a salad, or can happily be eaten on it’s own as a snack.

  • A great choice of tea leaf balanced with considered seasoning. Pleasant aftertaste. The texture is pleasing, giving just enough bite and chew in its leafy character. There is a gentle chilli warmth and slight sweet/salt balance from the kombu dashi. A thoroughly enjoyable taste surprise. Moreish!
