Mae Kampong Tea Leaf Pillow Center
Ban Mae Kampong is famous for its fermented tea leaves, or miang, the northern Thai equivalent of betal nut. Once fermented, the leaves are chewed and produce a slightly euphoric sensation. However, the waning popularity of miang means the locals have branched out into other types of agriculture, including making pillows stuffed with dried tea leaves. Such pillows are aromatic, and have relaxing and therapeutic values.
