Sweet Christmas Gift Idea
Oct 30, 2012

This holiday, give your loved ones a gift that will truly warm the heart. Manila Hotel is offering a traditional Tsokolatera Gift Set that will bring back memories of family gatherings and stories shared while enjoying a hot cup of chocolate. The Manila Hotel Tsokolatera Gift Set includes a tsokolatera pot, batirol or wooden whisk, and native Filipino tablea from Cebu.

Tsokolate, or Filipino hot chocolate, is a traditional and favorite drink especially during the holidays when the weather is a bit cooler. It’s made from native cacao beans and usually comes in tablet or in tablea form. Traditionally, tsokolate is made from tablea, water, and milk. The secret in creating a thick and frothy tsokolate is in the manner of whisking with the batirol. There are two traditional ways of preparing native hot chocolate: the tsokolate eh, a rich and thick chocolate drink, and the tsokolate ah, a diliuted and watery chocolate drink.

Have a taste of the holidays in a cup and get your Tsokolatera Gift Set for PhP 1912.00 NET. This special price offer is part of the Hotel’s 100th anniversary. For inquiries, please call 527 0011 local 1260 to 62.
