In Which a Local Tea Brewer Offers an Alternative to Overly Sweet Bottled Drinks…

Skinny tea to help you squeeze into skinny jeans?!

I’ve been a fan of the Schlurp Tea Artistry team ever since they first came out with the Schlurp Your Tea series of bottled milk teas a couple of years ago.  These were the first bottled milk teas in the Philippine market that actually tasted like tea as opposed to just sweetened milk with about a bare smidgen of poor quality black tea.  Their tea jellies at the bottom of every bottle were none too shabby, either: not too sweet and just astringent enough to add contrast.

These days, the folks at Schlurp now offer a series of bottled iced teas that are a wholesome and delicious alternative to the sugary faux iced teas being flogged by many softdrink companies.  The new line features Assam, Darjeeling, and Ceylon black teas brewed and flavoured with a touch of fruit juice: golden lime, guava, and lychee, as a matter of fact.  These err more on the puckeringly tart side, but I find this more delicious and certainly more refreshing than commercial tea drinks since they are more natural and don’t give you a bad case of oversugared throat afterwards.

Of course, I take their claims that their tea will help me squeeze better into my skinny jeans with a grain of salt, but the tea is certainly top-notch and worth the extra penny.
