Myanmar produces several varieties of tea (primarily from the Shan state) and a local milk tea ‘mix’ is drunk just about everywhere.
The local brew is made from tea and sweetened milk and served in the ubiquitous tea shops.
These shops are a way of life and you will find one on just about every corner, road stop or village.
Tea shops also serve snacks.
Today I enjoyed some wood fired ‘pita’ bread with Koko – a work colleague.
Both were yummy. One bread was topped with a savory bean mix and the other was served with sugar and honey.
Cafes and restaurants also use tea as an ingredient for cold drinks.
Shame I only drink coffee!
