Sabaiideeee ! Back on the blog, I missed it so much and I am very very happy to be back !
On this last week-end of March, L’Institut Français du Laos (French Institute) organized Les Jours des Thés, a day dedicated to the tea shops and organizations from Laos. A quick flashback to this savourous afternoon.
First stop at Kinnari and Amazingworx. Golden flame, Plateau Green and Silver Cloud how could you resist to the temptation to try them ? I had the chance to try few months ago to the Sticky rice one, and it was honestly delicious.
On the other side, everyone could enjoy a glass of Kombucha + Kefir, these probiotics beverages. Slighly sparkling – we call it in French “perlant”, I took a bottle of 3 Gingers home. The drinks are available at AmazingWorx.
Second stop at the Phayasi Tea, supported by Helvetas, where you could find Green and Red tea leaves from Phongsaly.
In the middle of the fair, a booth that was a bit particular, still related to tea, but … Used for art: from Virginie Faivre d’Acier and Eco Print Studio. Indeed, Mrs Virginie produces ink from tea, and she creates wonderful pieces.
The CCL (Comité de Coopération avec le Laos) showcased a Organic and Wild Green tea, with one of them valued at 2 million per kg !
Last stop at AgroAsie with Sangthong Valley. I was pretty curious about their Chocolate Mint Tea… So I tried, and it tastes like the famous After Eight chocolate. A gourmand beverage to enjoy with a piece of cake.
Did you attend this Tea market ?
