Traditional Burmese fermented tea leaves, 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.
