Burma Superstar Tea Leaf Salad


“The tea leaves are fermented, apparently hand-carried back from Burma, and have a deep vegetal flavor unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before. It is mixed at the table with romaine lettuce, peanuts, fried garlic and split yellow peas, sesame and sunflower seeds, tomato, and dried shrimp… It is crunchy and crispy and the flavor is out of this world, a musky, fragrant taste I’ve found nowhere else.”

For a video of the steps, go here:


4 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage (about 2/3 head)
2 T unsalted roasted peanuts
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
6 medium shrimp, shell on
2 garlic cloves + 2 T oil for frying
3 T sesame oil
2 T green tea leaves
1 tsp fish sauce
1 juicy lime
2 T cilantro, finely chopped
½ tomato, seeded and diced (optional)
