Drink Spotlight: Paper Boat Tulsi Tea

 

 
A leaf as medicinal as it is sacred, Tulsi is mainstay in North Indian courtyards and film sets that intend to show North Indian courtyards. Hot Tulsi preparations are often had for their health many health benefits. Our Tulsi Tea is confluence of the North and the East. The glory of Darjeeling tea coupled with the subtle musings of Tulsi. They complement each other very well. Sometimes, Darjeeling Tea is all “Hey Tulsi, you are a flavour” and Tulsi’s all “Hey you are a nice tea.” All great relationships are based on compliments.

 

 

Functional Benefits of Tulsi Tea
All the benefits of tea aside, Tulsi itself is a powerhouse of immunity. Often used to quell fevers and colds, Tulsi is host to benefits that range from easing respiratory problems to kidney stones (yup). Tulsi has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is supposed to aid in capillary function and control blood pressure. And due to it’s eugenol content, is helpful in removal of free radical and prevent heart ailments. It is also an anti-inflammatory. And a relaxant. And frankly, a bit of a show off

 

.
Ingredients
Tulsi leaves, black tea leaves, water, lemon, sugar

 

 

 

 

 

About the Company
History is basically a collective memory of a people. And we realize that history is a sum of parts. And some of those parts, are delicious. It all began when fours guys who are history buffs (and beverage buffs!) sat down to have lunch on a hot Indian summer. They would always share their lunch and one of them would always bring a flask of delicious homemade aampanna with him. Among the four of these history (and beverage!) enthusiasts, one comes from a far away land – A land of bald eagles, of bowls that are super and of cars that are Nas. He is quickly taken to the idea of commercializing this raw mango ale.

“I want to commercialize this raw mango ale”, says the man from the far away, hitherto
unknown land. “Aye!” the remaining trio heartily agree. “Woof!” goes the company dog who
the narrator of this tale forgot to mention until now.

And thus began the journey of Paper Boat. A journey of going back in time and bringing to fore,
liquid traditions. Drinks, that the many civilizations of this subcontinent inspired. Drinks, that are
practical and delicious. Drinks, that are a product of generations of trial and error. Drinks, that
are sadly being lost to the excesses of urban life. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Paper Boat Ginger Lemon Tea

 

 

Darjeeling tea is not your average tea. It’s called the ‘Champagne of Teas’ for a reason. It’s fruity demeanour, light in its essence, is one of the most distinct and sought after flavours on the planet. Fancy words aside, Darjeeling Tea *is* special. Other than being the first Indian product to receive the GI (Geographical Indication) tag, meaning only it is permitted to be grown in Darjeeling. So you can bet your uh, essence that a lot of care goes into plucking and sorting it. Then packing and blending it. Then brewing and serving it. Oh, and did we mention that it’s brewed with ginger and lemon? Well it’s in the name so no surprise there. The aftertaste alone is worth a whole conversation on its own. Wait. This actually would’ve been a surprise.

 

 


Functional benefits of Ginger Lemon Tea

Darjeeling black tea (amber coloured) is a known anti-oxidant, it helps reducing inflammation and other oxidation related internal hullabaloo (OORIH). It also prevents halitosis and general bad breath problems. It is not a substitute for brushing or dentists though. Oh, and the ginger in it is a massive immunity booster. Did you know that ginger contains essential amounts of chromium, magnesium and zinc that help in regulating blood flow and combat motion sickness. Despite all this, ginger denies being in a thrash metal band.

 
Ingredients: 4% lemon juice, water, sugar, ginger, black tea leaves and some lemon grass

Drink Spotlight: Paper Boat Chilled Rasam

 

 
Rasam, a preparation as delicious as its phonetics. An essential suffix to every south Indian meal, Rasam is quite simply put, mesmerizing. That’s why we came up with Chilled Rasam. And we know, Rasam is meant to be had hot. That’s what we thought as well. Then we tried it chilled. This opened up a whole new world for us. This spicy tomato drink is a lot more than it lets on. Add the word, ‘cocktail’ to the mix and you have your very own Subcontinental-Condimental-Bloody-Mary (working title). Bottom’s up!

 

 

Functional benefits of chilled rasam
Other than being the tastiest digestive to ever exist, Rasam with it’s tomato and tamarind content is high on organic acids like citric acid and tartaric acid. Both are known for their incredible anti-oxidant properties and for having the same first name. Tomatoes are also the greatest source of lycophenes, which gives it digestive properties. Lycophenes also improve blood functions like regulate platelet activity. We think it’s because they are both red coloured and they stick up for one another.

 
Ingredients
Coriander
Cumin
Lal mirch
Asafoetida
Salt

 

and all this stuff:
25% tomato & tamarind, acidity regulator,citric acid, Natural & nature identical flavouring

About the Company
It started like a bad joke: A suburban, white guy from Philly (Dan) walks into an Indian restaurant and asks for hot sauce because his food isn’t spicy enough. The server looks puzzled and then runs next door to borrow a bottle of Tabasco for his heat-craving guest. How is this possible? Indian food is naturally very spicy – was it possible there was no such thing as Indian hot sauce?!

He goes to his smart, better-looking Indian friend (Lalit) and inquires if this scoville scandal was true. Together, they go to a local Indian grocery where Lalit points out that instead of hot sauces (as most Americans know them), most Indian use chutneys such as pickled mango and mint-coriander preserves to spice up food. Over a billion people in South Asia can’t be wrong – right? Dan found these products amazingly tasty – but completely baffling to use. These were oily, chunky, and did not look very appetizing by American standards. How do we even eat this stuff?! Wait… we have an idea. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Cocojal 100% Natural Tender Coconut Water

 

Cocojal used to pack their coconut water in sachets, but realizing this was rather awkward and led to spillage of the product, they developed a new package type – an eco-friendly plastic bottle. You get coconut water to go, while stores get an easier to stock product.

Cocojal was the first company in India to introduce coconut water to the market. Now they are revolutionizing the market again with their new bottles which make it easier for more customers to buy and use coconut water. Cocojal extracts the coconut water by squeezing the water out of fresh coconut, preserving all of the nutrients coconut water is so well known for.

These new bottles were developed in conjunction with the Defence Food Research Laboratory of the Ministry of Defence. They are designed to keep the Cocojal coconut water protected well enough that refrigeration is not required, while still being lightweight and convenient.

How convenient? You don’t have to try to tap into the coconuts yourself to get at all of that goodness inside. Just buy a bottle of Cocojal and you’re set. It’s easy to add a straw so anyone regardless of age can enjoy it.

Cocojal also comes in flavors: mango, lime, and pineapple. Nothing brings the flavors of a meal together quite like a cool beverage of fruit flavors, and nothing brings you variety at work each time you reach for a drink of water like coconut water with a variety of flavors.

So why coconut water? Coconut water has sugars and other carbohydrates, plus trace amounts of protein, up to 35 milligrams of phosphorus, and no fat. You get a natural source of minerals like sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Think of coconut water as nature’s sports drink. In fact, it was used by field medics in World War II as an intravenous fluid for soldiers on the battlefield.

Not only is it good for you, but coconut water is refreshing, thanks to the small amounts of natural sugar. This is especially true if you keep it refrigerated. It’s great if you have gotten dehydrated due to heat or exercise as it can bring back your hydration along with all of the minerals you need for cellular nutrition.

Trend Observation: Britvic ready to take the Indian kid’s soft drink market by storm

 

Britvic, one of the leading soft drinks manufacturers in the Great Britain, has decided to launch one of its product lines, Fruit Shoot in India. Kids are enthralled by the latest development of Britvic because Robinson’s Fruit Shoot is a specialized kids soft drink brand which has been introduced in four different flavors; apple and pear, apple and blueberry, mango, raspberry and strawberry.

 

Britvic introduced this product in the Indian market after conducting a thorough research. The flavors have been chosen on the basis of most-popular tastes in the Indian region amongst kids. The production of the soft drinks will be under the supreme control of the company, but the packaging/bottling along with its distribution is handed over to the local group named Narang.

 

Simon Stewart, International Managing Director of Britvic, stated in a press conference that different regions prefer different flavors. For example; orange flavor is liked a lot in the United Kingdom whilst French, and American people prefer multi-vitamin water and blueberry flavor respectively.

 

Fruit Shoot will be launched in the ten major cities of India at first but eventually Britvic will launch its kid’s soft drink brand in 36 cities all across the country. The distribution of the product by Narang Group will ensure that the product is available at all modern retail stores.

 

It seems like Britvic is all set to take over the kid’s soft drink market in India by storm after a successful reign in United Kingdom.
