While in Phra Khanong market, the only Burmese market I know of in Bangkok I bought the following seemingly-to-me similar products of Brown to Black dried tea leafs (pictured below).

I dranked a small glass of a hot tea of these leafs and it had a very mild comforting taste.

What is this Burmese/Myanmmarese Brown to Black dried tea leafs?
What is the English name please?

  • Well, I think it's black tea leafs, dried; after drinking 3 cups I feel very "excited" from nothing; like other caffeine boosts I had in the past. – user79730 Feb 5 '20 at 12:02
  • Definitely - I stayed awake about 48 hours. That was terrible ! – user79730 Feb 7 '20 at 7:03

These could be leaves to make "Lahpet" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahpet), so perhaps you can drink them too?
