Lost Tea - Chilli Lahpet (200g)
Traditional Burmese fermented tea leaves with added locally dried Birdseye Chilli. The tea is grown and handpicked by small holder farmers, then fermented in Pindaya, Shan State, Myanmar. Chilli is a big part of Burmese cuisine and although we have opted for the milder end of this Burmese heat spectrum, this Lahpet still packs quite the spicy kick! 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.
