The beverage called tuba

Postby Alexandoy » Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:54 am

Tuba is a drink from the coconut tree that is distilled from the coconut flower. There are 2 kinds of tuba - a relaxing cool drink and an alcoholic drink. The fresh tuba is like a juice and is alcohol free. But the alcoholic tuba is more popular because it is the favorite drink of the old folks in the rural areas particularly in towns where there are coconut plantations. For the foreigners who come to visit the rural areas, don't fail to ask for tuba.

This is the first time that I've heard about the tuba drink and I've been to the Philippines a few times. I watched a few videos on YouTube about it and it sounds and looks like a good drink to try out. I will definitely ask about it the next time I'm in the Philippines.

This sounds like a great drink, and it's made from the sap of various species of plam trees, and this alcoholic beverage is very popular in Asia, Africa, The Carribbean, South America, and Micronesia as well. They do call this by many names and in different regions like palm wine, matango, tumbu liquor, and white stuff in Cameroon.
