About the drink
“Why are you going to Laos, there’s nothing but jungle and monks” (cit.)
No description of this pleasent country could be more accurate, and that’s exactly why we loved it from day 1: green forests, temples and monks (often times mini-monks) fill your eyes at every corner.
In Luang Prabang buddism is embedded in people’s daily lives and the saffron color of the monks’ robes fills the streets every morning during the “Sat Bai” ceremony, or morning alms. Sat Bai is a longstanding tradition in Laos buddhist culture. In this ceremony, held in complete silence before dawn, devotees offer the food they’ve prepared with great care to monks that line up in the street with their alms bowls (bat).
This long drink is inspired by the color of monks’ robes, and it’s so good will have you all line up to get more!
Ok, ok got a little cocky there, but we promise it’ll put a smile on your face.
