I bought this tin of 'tea' when I was in Cambodia last December. This is a blend of crushed Kampot pepper seeds with dried lemon grass strips. This tin held 30 grams of 'tea' and came nicely packed in a fancy looking aluminium tin. This packing is suitable for tourists and this product should do well as a Cambodian souvenir.
The instructions say to add 2g into a cup and adding hot water would get me a cup of Kampot pepper tea. Kampot pepper is a famous pepper grown in the Kampot province in Cambodia. I enjoy cooking and I found this Kampot pepper to be one of the spiciest pepper I had came across. It is hot and aromatic and would make a nice addition to your spice rack.
I brewed up a cup with 2g of this 'tea' and found the tea pleasant. The pepper pods and lemongrass float to the surface and I suggest you spoon these away before you start drinking. I added honey in my second session and my family preferred this sweetened version.
A fun drink.
