As much as tea is popular across both Europe and Asia, the practice of making fermented tea leaf salads has largely remained within Burma. As such, The Lost Tea Company is aiming to introduce Burmese tea salads to the UK.
The Lost Tea Company's Fermented Tea Salad Kit is made up of tea leaves, rapeseed oil, salt and lime powder, plus a variety of nuts, peas and crunchy beans. To these kits, the start-up suggests including a few ingredients like tofu, ginger, fish sauce and a variety of vegetables.
With the help of this kit, tea lovers will be able to discover a new way to enjoy tea leaves other than using them for the purposes of steeping and drinking.
