BEST TIME TO SERVE

In Singpho's native language, phalap/khalap simply means tea. The leaves of Camellia sinensis, generally known as tea, were said to grow on lofty trees and were collected over elephant backs to make the local beverage for colonial guests as a gesture of warmth and welcome. The tea leaves were fried and sun – dried to extract the best flavor, then smoked in bamboo cylinders to add piquancy to the tea. This procedure contributes to the lengthy shelf life of tea, which may survive for years and only improves with age. This gives Phalap a more flavorful flavor than conventional organic tea and makes it popular among tea lovers and tea aficionados all over the world.
