TRAVEL DIARY OF JEAN DUMOULIN:

Traditionally, these boxes contained lime, which, when mixed with areca nut, spices of tobacco, was used to make betel chewing tobacco.

This was a common practice in many countries in southeastern Asia, and is still very present in Myanmar (Burma). It gives a feeling of slight euphoria to the consumers. From experience, after a serious discussion with a betel quid consumer, it is better to schedule a talk in the morning, rather than at the end of the day, as attention and understanding may be minimal.

In addition, this practice damages the user’s teeth and gums, giving them an inimitable red smile.


It will be packaged with care, sent with insurance and track & trace via Bpost.
