In an interview with Team Out of Town, Claudine Roura, owner of Gastromind Inc, the company that brought Presotea in the Philippines, said Presotea uses state-of-the-art technology Teapresso to provide the freshest and healthiest tea drinks. The high-temperature and high-pressure machine extracts the essence of tea, thus making every customer enjoy the fresh tea flavors and the bittersweet aftertaste.

“Our tea is processed using the tea espresso machine. Aside from the tea extraction, we do brew to order because it comes from one tea bag per cup. We’re using the tea espresso for a bolder flavor. We are the only shop that uses tea espresso,” Roura told Team Out of Town

Unlike other tea shops, Roura said that Presotea stands out because it uses one special tea bag for each cup of tea.

“If you notice, our shop has no tea jars. Almost all tea shop has jars and they are only pouring it. That’s only batch brewing. Ito kada order mo dun pa lang i-brew. Kaya ang tawag is brew to order,” Roura said.

Far different from other bubble tea shops, Presotea prides itself in being Tea Specialists: it has developed a deep foundation in tea knowledge with years of experience in producing quality tea leaves. It has its own factories that process its various premium ingredients and toppings.

To produce the best tea, Presotea’s Headquarters in Taiwan hired innovative tea artisans and created a research and development team whose sole focus is to manufacture new and unique products that meet the needs of the customers. In fact, they have invented a new tea brewing technology that sets them apart from the present tea beverage market.
