Teh Botol

5 Mar


‘Teh Botol’ literally means ‘botteled tea’ in Indonesian and that is exactly what it is. Tea that is botteled. Jasmine tea to be more precise. In this case, I had the Tetra Pak package version of Teh Botol which is a new addition to the original glass bottle packaging. It is a popular drink in Indonesia and is distributed by the Sosro brand. It is best served chilled!

    One of the best thing from Indonesia, originally served in glass bottle and developed into box package to make it easier to consume. Yet, glass is very expensive today.

    It cost Euro 0.60 and could be found in Indomarkt, Berlin (in case the readers are from Germany). In Indonesia, it cost IDR 2.500 ($ 1 = IDR 9.800) and the most important thing is, it is everywhere from street to supermarket.

    One did said that if you never taste Teh Botol Sosro means you aren`t fully Indonesian.

    Welcome to the paradise of Jasmine Tea from Teh Botol Sosro! I look forward to go into detail for the next post about Teh Botol Sosro, thank you for the inspiration!

      Thanks for the additional information! You really sound like a fan of Teh Botol. As far as I know your saying must be correct, since there are very few Indonesians who haven’t tasted Teh Botol (yet). I must say that drinking some Teh Botol on a hot, summery, Indonesian day is really good.

        Dude, I am Indonesian and yes, Teh Botol for every day in Indonesia. But not too much, you may catch sugar in your blood and turn you into a zombie.

        Haha I agree. I’ve also had my share of Es Teh Manis in Indonesia and I know how much sugar is put in those. The same can be said of Teh Botol. Too much isn’t good for you I agree, but it is sometimes just to good and refreshing to don’t order it.
