We couldn’t be more excited to post this Cooking with Tea recipe created by Olivia May at From the Kitchen of Olivia. When the Arbor Teas team recently visited San Francisco we enjoyed an amazing Burmese Tea Salad at a small family restaurant named Pagan. We shared our adventure with Olivia who, inspired by her own Burmese Tea Salad adventures, created this recipe using Arbor Teas’ Organic Makaibari Estate Darjeeling Green Tea.
This recipe for a traditional Burmese fermented tea leaf salad (Lahpet Thoke pronounced “la-pay toe”) is an eclectic mix of flavors and textures. However, finding fermented tea leaves outside Burma and northern Thailand isn’t very easy. Luckily, this recipe includes directions to ferment your own tea leaves!
