Getting into the htan ye groove

There are several different htan ye shops around the area of Bagan. Today we found one in New Bagan and ordered a round at around 12:30pm. We got served a big 1.5-liter pot with half a coconut shell in it so we could pour ourselves as much as we want in our own coconut shell. The palm wine was not as fizzy as the others I had so far and also not as fragrant. It still had a sour aroma but way milder than the other one’s I had. The body was also not as cloudy. It looked like a watered down version. The taste was sweet and slightly sour but also quite mild which made it easier to drink. I am not sure how much alcohol it contained but after half a liter I felt a nice buzz. Probably the best palm wine I had yet.
