Tokyo Tokyo is the No. 1 Japanese fast-food restaurant chain in the Philippines. It offers a variety of Japanese dishes such as sushi, tempura, yakisoba, and tonkatsu, just to name a few. In addition, they serve delicious side dishes, desserts, and drinks. Personally, I love their bottomless red iced tea, so I tried to recreate it at home using only a few simple ingredients.

Hello Liz,

It's a local chain of a Japanese restaurant. I really like their drink because of the taste. This is the best cheat recipe I can make to recreate the drink very easy.

I have not heard of Tokyo Tokyo before. But we have bought peach or lemon iced tea before.

Hi Mary,

It's quite a lot of sugar for this version. So It's necessary to control the amount of intake for this recipe. On the other hand, a healthy version of the recipe is the best choice.
