Simple Joy – Mountain Tea in the Philippines

Maybe you think the Philippines are all about beaches.

Not so.

There are lots of mountains. In the northern part of Luzon, the biggest island, we came across this mountain tree, drunk by the local people.

Couple of leaves, hot water, let it sit for a bit, and sip.

Simple joy.
