Betel Leaf. Sold by the battery-weight.
There were also several men preparing betel to order: Smear a betel leaf with lime from a disgusting can, add areca nut from another disgusting can, flavorings from one or more of an array of disgusting cans, wrap, pin together, put in a tiny plastic bag. Not appetizing.
For a picture of me having some sanitary betel, see here. and the next picture.
"What betel chewers put in their mouths is primarily areca nut, sometimes wrapped in betel leaf, with mineral lime usually added as a catalyst. These three ingredients are often supplemented by additions of spices, candy, or tobacco" - from epistola.com
