Our trip to the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) to attend the Centennial Celebrations gave a me a chance to meet two ladies who are into organic products. Melda Pantua of Herb Republic (which I wrote about in “A Herb Republic Rises”) and Adelfa M. Nuestro of Delfa’s Organic Products. Aling Delfa sells a variety of organic products including instant ginger tea (a personal favorite), peanut butter (creamy and chunky varieties), Tsokolate Alfonso (tablea de cacao), cafe barako/ coffee alamid, Luyang Dilaw Tea (turmeric), assorted pastillas, ube/ coco/ coco-pili / pineapple jams and black ground pepper.
Above: The Ginger Tea (Salabat). The small plastic bottle costs P50 and the bigger one is at P100 each.
Above: The Turmeric (Luyang Dilaw) and Ginger Tea (Salabat) are also available in foil packaging
The Turmeric Tea (Luyang Dilaw) in foil. The label lists the many benefits of the brew including various pains and intestinal disorders.
