Taste Tea HistoryEver since their legendary encounter with Alaungsithu of Bagan circa 1100 A.D., the Palaung people have carried on crafting Myanmar's treasured national food and conversational catalyst.
Taste Tea CultureFrom the Irrawaddy Valley to the high mountain slopes of Myanmar, 'laphet so' is one of the few things that unites Myanmar under the banner of taste, flavor, and the buzz it brings to any evening.
Taste Tea LeafTake the dive, and taste Myanmar's ancient delicacy in its highest form.
Taste the Terroir of Myanmar
Tea is Culture in Myanmar. Try pairing CULTURED TEA LEAF™ with any of your favorite hors d'oeuvres to add an explosion of fermented flavor and umami. Prosciutto di Parma combined with the terroir of Namhsan is one of our favorite simple recipes. As a plus, you'll find Cultured Tea Leaf brings a kick of caffeine to the party.
Adorn your food with the Queen of All Leaves
CULTURED TEA LEAF™ pairs exceptionally well with beef. We add a dollop of Myanmar's Queen of all leaves to create a new category of Myanmar-American fare, the Cultured Tea Burger.
Aged to perfection at 5,000 feet
CULTURED TEA LEAF™ 'Laphet So' is aged for 6-12 months to achieve the most unique fermented taste you'll ever experience. We adorn one of America's favorites, filet mignon, with our spicy edible tea leaf to create a masterpiece.
We always like to present high quality 'Laphet So' as the culinary main event, in its original form. The act of chewing tender tea leaf is a ritual everyone should experience just as done in Myanmar. While we love all our hip tea pairings, the most intense flavor of CULTURED TEA LEAF™ 'Laphet So' is best experienced solo on a spoon, or set atop a crunchy cracker of your choice.
Wine, Cheese & Tea Leaf
After experimenting for years, CULTURED TEA LEAF™ is complimented by the creaminess of any of your favorite aged cheeses. Your favorite glass of red pairs dramatically with our olive-oil-infused 'Laphet So' delicacy.
