Tea Garden

The Tea Garden offers a menu of Burmese food and drinks, all made fresh in our kitchen using mainly local produce, organic if we can find it. Our most popular dishes includes Somosas, Tea Leaf Salad, Fruit Salad with our home made Yoghurt, often eaten with a Basil Lime Juice or Roselle Juice and finished with Doi Inthanon Coffee.
Our garden is also an oasis in Mae Sot where concrete is replacing green spaces at an alarming rate. Since the start we have planted trees and flowering plants and this makes our place remarkable cooler than the street in front.
In order to minimise the impact to our environment we don’t hand out straws, have biodegradable boxes for take away and encourage you to eat at the café, as to help reduce waste.

Profits from the Tea Garden are partly shared with staff of Borderline and partly used for projects Borderline likes to support.


Please understand that in keeping with our mission to support women, while providing a safe space for staff and collective members, our Tea Garden is alcohol-free.
