Herbal teas and health drinks at Sikat Pinoy National Food Fair 2014 this March 26-30 in Megatrade Hall

I learned about the art of making of salabat tea during my boy scout days, then the art of making your own mint tea, its very effective if you have those leafy greeny plants in your backyard, but what happens if you ran out of leaf ? Enter now the instant mix and tea, Last January I bought this local made lemongrass tea in Bacolod City, its a one of a kind tea for me, because I never saw that in a our grocery, I realized that we have lots of good products in our provinces, now I wonder that why do they have less presence in our grocery? is it a good time to have a supermarket that offers and sell all-pinoy products? hmmm

Let's support our national food produced and products this March 26-30, 2014 in SM Megatrade Hall 1-3 for the Sikat Pinoy National Food Fair.
