Did you know this about tea?

Pickled Tea

Most people think of tea as only something that you drink, and in most parts of the world, that is the case. In Burma, however, they have long had a completely different way to enjoy tea. The Burmese have a pickled tea that they call lephet. To make Lephet, tea leaves are first softened, then allowed to cool, then rolled tightly and placed underground to age. Lephet is considered a delicacy in Burma and is mandatory for some important social occasions. The Burmese usually serve it on a tray with the pickled tea in the middle, surrounded by several other garnishes.

These can include shrimp, sesame seeds, garlic peanuts and dried peas. While the Burmese may be the only culture that places importance on eating tea as a food. They will still consume it as a drink on a regular basis.
