Filipinos love to entertain and when they do, it’s usually over lunch or dinner at a favorite restaurant. Iced tea is the popular beverage choice especially for those trying to cut down on their calorie intake. Many are unaware, however, that their favorite drink is actually made from a tea-flavored sweetened powder mix.
Lipton has just come out with 14 g pouch bags containing 100 percent tea leaves that restaurant owners and bar managers can use to make fresh brewed ice tea. Given how so many Filipinos can’t seem to get enough of milk tea, Lipton’s newest offering has come at just the right time.
Tea has had a long-standing history as a choice beverage throughout the world–entire cultural practices revolve around it, and it even holds its place in politics, economics and revolutions. In modern times, it’s a great alternative to coffee, especially because of its more tempered caffeine boost, or generally, for its refreshing taste.
Each 14-g pouch bag is specially blended to create that distinct Lipton flavor we have grown to love and expect. Unlike regular-sized teabags, the pouch bag format makes tea brewing in large-scale operations such as large food establishments more cost effective.
The basics are simple: just steep one 14 g bag in one liter of hot water (90-100 degree C) for 10 to 12 minutes. With the right amount of creativity and a few other ingredients–like fruits, herbs and spices–restaurateurs, bar owners and mixologists can come up with different tea drinks designed to entice even the most finicky tea drinker.
