Lephet, also known as La-phat, La-phet, or letphet, is a pickled tea salad popular in Myanmar (Burma). You can read about it here and here, though the English in both articles is a little rough. If Myanmar's too far to go and you're ever in the vicinity of Fort Wayne, Indiana, swing by Golden House Asian Cuisine and sample some.
For another spelling variation and an interesting, article on the delicacy, go to In Pursuit of Tea's Web site and read Sebastian Beckwith's short piece.
Here's an article from CuisineNet about Burmese cuisine. It offers more information about the dish, including a recipe that substitutes ginger for tea. It's probably safe to say that you could ditch the ginger and put the tea back in, though the author claims Burmese tea is a key component in the recipe.
