Fermented tea leaves salad mixed with rice (lephet htamin)

Making of the fermented tea leaves (lephet)
First, the steamed leaves are heaped together in a pulp mass and put into baskets and left overnight. Then, these baskets are placed inside the pits in the ground. Use heavy weights to cover the top. Occassional inspection is carried out to see the process of fermentation as sometimes re-steaming is required.
There are two types of fermented tea leaves that can be purchased from Myanmar shops. One is ready-made packet which is already seasoned and ready to consume. For the other type, you can season it on your own according to your spice and sour levels.
Seasoning of the lephet, i will post it in my blog soon. For the time being, enjoy my lephet htamin :)

tea leaf or lephet (ready-made packet from Myanmar shop)
