In Lao language ‘tamasat’ means nature or natural. It is used to describe items that come from mother earth and are 100% pure and organic. Monica has been living in Laos for many years. In her kitchen at the Mekong she creates heavenly products: Her passion are homemade and organic jams, marmalades and pickles.

    About the products

    • Fresh & Seasonal: All products are made during harvest season.
    • Organic: All fruits come from local villages or from organic farms.
    • Less Sugar: Monica uses a natural gelling agent, which means half as much sugar.
    • Quality & Hygiene: All of the products are produced with the utmost care.
    • Traditional Storage: Monica stores the jams for several months, so the flavor is more intense.
    • Long Expiration: As the glasses are sealed, the jams can be stored for 1 1/2 years.
