***Great Taste 2021 Winner***
Traditional Burmese fermented tea leaves chopped up into an easy to use paste. The leaves are 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.
This Chopped Lahpet is a healthy and tasty addition to a range of dishes, perfect mixed with rice or added to a curry, but also can happily be eaten on it’s own as a snack on toast or a cracker biscuit.

A unique. complex and intriguing product with a myriad of uses. Tannic, vegetal, sour, and salty, this paste could be used to elevate many dishes.
Such an unusual product and at first we didn't know what to expect. The aroma is earthy and sour, we anticipated depth. This was an understatement. There is a rich length and complexity to the flavour. This product with its umami, citrus and bitter tang has the potential for a wide variety of uses. An unusual, playful and sophisticated product.
