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.
