Recent Tasting Notes
Let’s start with a digression about what I tried that after the disastrous experience of trying another of their product.
I moved earlier this week and needed a few things that are most readily available at a famous swedish furniture store. It took longer than expected (doesn’t it always especially in this shop?), I decided to have dinner there. I learnt that I was entitled to a free drink for being a loyal customer to the brand (double so as I am registered both in Europe and in Singapore as the loyalty programs are not shared across countries).
In the drink choice, this was the only non soda drink and I did not even see a water fountain.
When tasting my first sip, I was getting prepared for a bad experience and was then positively surprised, as I realized it was quite drinkable. There is still more than 10 times the amount of sugar there should be; I was wondering whether there’s not also aspartame or whatever synthetic diet sugar are used in soft drinks, as the taste was not very natural. But this artificial feeling might also come from the lemon, which did not taste as much as dishwasher liquid as I feared but nevertheless did not taste at all like a fresh or even dried real lemon, but really like a lemon synthetic flavoring.
When reading the product description,I laughed at the “real tea leaves” section as the tea flavor reminded me strongly of the basic Lipton yellow;)
I will not buy it again, except if there is nothing else, but then I know I could drink it.
Why did I order that, instead of a bottle of water with a lunch pack ? I still wonder…
When opening the can and pouring the drink in a glass, no smell can be detected. The color is rather yellowish and the drink not too clear.
Drinking it, what do I taste ? Sugar. Sugar. Sugar. Then I remember it’s supposed to contain honey, I try to check whether the sugary feeling could come from honey; not sure, so not sure and not convinced I wonder how much honey there actually is in there.
Which makes me also wonder how much tea or chamomile flowers are actually used by the way.
From my once-tasting experience not to be renewed in the future, I would assume 2g would be sufficient to prepare a few liters of this decidedly poor beverage.
