Real Leaf now with Honey!

There are like a gazillion of brands and variants of ready to drink bottled green tea drink these days. And most are basically the same until the new Real Leaf green tea with honey caught my attention.

Finally! Someone got one of my favorite healthy ingredient in these bottles.

I actually used to mix a spoonful of raw honey into my breakfast milk as a kid. I use it as a sugar substitute; talk about being health-conscious at such a young age! My mom used to buy boxes of honey bottles from downtown Chinatown in Binondo, Manila.

Honey can basically serve as energy booster, immunity enhancer, and  is a natural remedy healer for a number of ailments.

Real Leaf Green Tea

Real Leaf Green Iced Tea

You don’t just buy these honey bottles off the streets or grocery shelves here in the Philippines. The usual ones are either old stocks or mixed with water and sugar (volume for more profits). My folks have their way of smelling and scrutinizing the authentic and pure ones.

Back to the present, Real Leaf now mixes the natural goodness of honey with the natural green tea leaves. With a dose of theanine (amino acid naturally found in tea plants), add to that the health factors from honey. That’s like double the goodness and double the benefits.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, it further levels-up with three flavors namely Honey Apple, Honey Lemon and Honey Lychee. Choose your pick.

By the way, I’d like to extend my thanks to JP Manahan for allowing me to use his Real Leaf photos of us (above) during my blogosphere thanksgiving swimming party early this year.

The Brewing Process

Being a Cola-Cola product, Real Leaf iced tea boasts of its brewing process which is said to follow world-class standards based on years of experience and expertise of The Coca-Cola System. They are proud of maintaining freshness, quality, aroma and the rewarding benefits of natural tea. The green tea leaves they used are also sourced all the way from the Zhejiang region from the world producer of more than 70% of the total green tea output – China.
