Burma Superstar's Fermented Tea Leaves @ Rainbow Grocery!!!! [San Francisco]

Just found them in the refrigerated section by the prepared foods. They also sell the garlic/peanut/sesame topper that goes on their salad.

I just made some delicious Burmese Spring rolls :smiley:

Another source for fermented tea leaves is Berkeley Bowl. They were selling prepared salads by Cafe Karla, but the last time I went they were selling 9 oz jars of “Burmese tea leaf salad dressing” or a version with ginger. Ingredients are fermented green tea leaf, peanut oil, lemon juice, salt, chili, garlic, canola oil, potassium sorbate, and malic acid.
I haven’t tried it yet, as I keep claiming I’m going to have a taste-off with the two imported from Burma brands in my cabinet, but not following through.

They also sell these online on Good Eggs.

Monterey Market also sells the Cafe Karla tea leaf salad and dressing. I saw it there this morning.
