Baan Chart Bangkok Hotel, a three- and- a- half star hotel, is located on Khaosan Road which is the centre of tourists and hospitality in the heart of the central city of Bangkok. Ban Chart Hotel values our quests’ satisfaction as the first priority so we offer only excellent services including rooms and amenities as well as food provided at our restaurant. The quality of food and beverages served for is guaranteed.
From joining co- operative education project, I had a chance to work as an intern in Food and Beverage Department of Baan Chart Bangkok which is a part of Court Yard Restaurant. From the observation, it is found that beverages served for guests are usually turned out to be left- overs or somehow never been drunk. From that, I thought that It would be the new innovation for the hotel,If we use “mint leaves” that left from food production to make another beverage menu as iced mint tea. Part of it is to support sustainable concept of tourism as we were able to reduce unnecessary waste and re-cycle the un-used products to be something useful.
To be aware of the true result of re- cycling mint leaves into iced mint tea recipes, questionnaires has been conducted to determine the satisfaction level and the result suggested that the satisfaction level is positively achieved that the practice can be used in a daily basis. However, useful suggestions are given by employees working in the Court Yard that the scent and taste can be improved by putting more mint leaves to enhance the mine scent as well as reduce the sweet. As a conclusion, iced mint tea can be adapted to work well on day-to-day routine for the hotel.
