Bayani Brew: the all-nutritious, all-delicious and all-Filipino iced tea

"We can do no great things, only small things with great love." I came across this quote from Mother Theresa recently. What a blessing it is to be living in a time where our seemingly little, everyday decisions can easily be of great help, if we consciously choose what is good. The products we consume, the services we avail of - do these help in nation building and empowering people? This is one of our main advocacies at Manos - to give you as many opportunities to spread love through your everyday choices.

Buying quality goods that are developed and produced locally is a perfect example. It helps strengthen our local industries and economies and directly impacts communities on the ground. It also lessens our carbon footprint: indigenous ingredients and markedly reduced transportation means less strain on our environment. We're proud to offer one such a product from a social enterprise: Bayani Brew.

A great way to beat the heat this summer!

Bayani Brew is a nutritious, delicious and locally produced iced tea. The refreshing recipe was developed by nanays in the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm in Bulacan, using all natural and healthy veggies and fruits like lemongrass, pandan and calamansi. They do not use articial flavors or coloring. As a social enterprise, it supports Filipino farming communities and advocates countryside development.

The next time you visit Manos for your favorite service, I encourage you to try Bayani Brew. You'll not only be sipping a refreshing beverage, but also taking part in building this country. Here's to choosing and doing many small things with great love! Ü
