I have Become a Huge Fan of One Particular Herbal Tea Beverage


Sometimes you come across products that you drink, and they make you wonder more about the company that is behind the production of those products. The things that are made by Tan Hiep Phat Beverage Group made me want to do exactly that. I fell in love with them because they are all so very tasty to me, and that got me wondering how a company could be so spot on with the things that they make. I feel this way about other things in life at times, too.

I love herbal tea, and I bought some that I saw no the store shelf one day. I had no idea who made the tea, but I really loved the taste once I tried it out. I continued to buy it as normal, only knowing the name of the tea, but not the manufacturer. Then, later, I bought a sports drink when I stopped in at a convenience store one day on a business trip.

I was feeling so sluggish, and I thought this type of drink might help. I grabbed the first thing out of the store’s cooler that looked good, went outside to my car and sipped it slowly. By the time that I got out onto the highway and was well on the way to getting to my destination, I was stunned by how good I felt. And the drink tasted good, too. That is when I looked to see who made the thing that I had just been drinking.

When I got to my destination, I decided to look up the company that made an item that made me feel so alert and good. That’s when I learned that the same company also makes the tea that I drink. I paid attention to the other things they produce, and now I am a big fan of everything that they make. There’s nothing I don’t like from their line!


Cinnamon Atole Drink


Atole or atol is a drink of my childhood, traditionally served at breakfast or during the snack along with a rich bread of sweet or accompanied by tamales. The atole has pre-Hispanic origins and was prepared with corn masa with water and served very hot. This drink is popular in Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras. Let’s cook!

6 Ingredients

4 cups of fresh milk
2 cinnamon sticks
2 sugar cuas
4 teaspoons of cornstarch
1/2 Cup of water
Cinnamon powdered

1 Place a deep casserole on the stove and add the milk, cinnamon and sugar. Cook these ingredients over low heat.
2 In a bowl combine 1/2 cup water with the corn starch and dissolve until a white preparation is obtained.
3 When the milk reaches its first boil, add the corn starch dissolved in water and move with a spoon until a viscous consistency.
4 When the atole is thick, serve it hot in a pot or a cup and sprinkle with cinnamon powder. Accompany with a rich bread of sweet or toasted bread with butter.


Safe to use and instant energy boosting THP Tea and Bottled Drinks

I like to do everything possible to make good decisions about the things I put in my body and the things I do to stay fit in life. For example, I am picky about the bottled drinks that I get at the store, and I often gravitate toward Tan Hiep Phat drinks because I trust what they sell. I have even spent time doing my research to learn more about their products and the founders of the company. I do this with a lot of other things that I come across in life, too.

It is important to me that the things that I drink and eat are made of high quality products. Price is important as well, but it is always a good idea to pay for quality. That is why I love the THP green tea so much. I know it is a good quality and not bad for my health. These days, the focus on good health is so important, that’s why I appreciate brands that understand this, like THP tea.

I also love to work out whenever I get the chance to do so. I know it is easy to skip exercise, but I use the THP sports drinks as a motivation to work out. I know I love their sports drinks, so I tell myself to work out for 30 minutes and then I let myself go down to the store on my way out of the gym and pick one up. Since they are a national brand, they are available pretty much everywhere, which is so convenient for me. Anyway, I have one after I finish my workout and I feel so energized and refreshed. They don’t have too many added sugars, so they don’t undo all the work I just did in the gym. Plus, they taste great. I think you should use them as a motivation for your workout too.
