Cup of tea anyone?


By Gordon…

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!
