Hi,

Mostly looking for Burmese Tea Leaf Salad, which I'm 99% convinced I can't find here. But- I would be happy if anyone had a source for the tea leaves (lephet) locally.

Thank you!

    Nothing that I know of by you, but these folks (in NY) will do mail order & have a good selection, if that's any help:

      wow- thank you for this! I've been looking for a website for the tea leaves, and coming up with a lot of dead ends and bad links. Now I just have to figure out what I need.

        I got Yuzana brand, which never tested positive for Auramine O even when the other brands did, although I have heard that the other manufacturers' leaves no longer contain it. Didn't bother getting the other ingredients -- fried peas etc. -- since I can do those at home. Just wonderful. Mumshouse in the UK also carries the leaves, & if you look back & forth between the sites, you can pretty much tell what is what (labels seem to be in Burmese only).
