Celebrate a brand new year in a clean slate with Forbes Five-star Award winner Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s ridiculously refreshing and utterly delicious offering, the signature Earl Grape Iced Tea.
Accompany new beginnings with a delightful infusion in this modern take on traditional recipe, which has been used by the British since the early 19th century to imitate the more expensive types of Chinese tea. Re-enforcing the link between East and West – like Marco Polo himself – Earl Grey tea was selected for its citrus flavour which perfectly complements the grapes.
The amount of care and detail that goes into creating each Earl Grape Iced Tea drink can only be surpassed by its taste. Cold Earl Grey tea provides the base of the beverage and is poured over seedless green grapes and elderflower-infused ice cubes. The grapes are slightly pressed so the combination of flavours can meld together, completing the thirst-quenching drink hailed by many as the perfect summer refreshment.
Every Earl Grape Iced Tea is presented with a freshly baked lokum or Turkish delight. The sugar-based confection is the perfect accompaniment to the Earl Grape Iced Tea, as it helps to accentuate the various flavours resulting from the beverage.
Guests may experience the refreshing beverage in all hotel dining experiences and through in-room dining. This drink is also available in all Marco Polo and Niccolo hotels.
