Batwan Kamote Tops Iced Tea

This refreshing drink uses kamote tops or talbos ng kamote. Apart from the fact na masarap sya, it’s easy to make. Don’t believe us? Check out the recipe.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 kg batwan (or sampaloc)
  • 100 g kamote tops
  • 1/4 cup calamansi juice
  • 1-inch knob turmeric, smashed
  • 1/4 cup honey


  1. Combine all ingredients in a pot.
  2. Boil for 15 minutes or until batwan is has disintegrated.
  3. Strain.
  4. Serve over ice.

Kamote tops are rich in vitamins A, K B-Carotene, B6 and more. Meanwhile, batwan, the sour fruit famous among Ilonggos and Negrenses (Shoutout sa mga subscribers namin!) is rich in vitamin C.
