Hard to find ingredient

Maybe try iherb.com Its a US company however delivery very reasonable and their products are first class. I use them for all my nuts, almond meal, cacao etc as organic and cheaper (generally) than what you buy the same product (and same brand) here for.

Cool, thanks for the ideas. Will do some investigating.

Hi, has anyone seen fermented tea leaves in any Asian shops around NZ?
It's used to make a tea leaf salad.

Perhaps look for a specialised Chinese Herb and spice Shop.

Do not know Christchurch if there are any there.
I know of one In Rosebank Road, Auckland but unsure if they have exactly what you looking for but never know unless one ask.

Editing to add that I think there is another in "K Rd" in Auckland.

Yeah cheers Valentino, it's a Burmese product so would prob be with Thai products.
I might have to ring around a few, Google hasn't come up with anything in NZ so far.

You could try contacting Teasme at Church Corner.

There is a Thai ingredients place in mt Albert, so they may have it?

Yeah cheers, I did try the tea place at church corner.
Do you know the name of the place in my Albert? I could give them a call.
