There’s nothing that beats the rejuvenating powers of a hot bath and a glass of wine.
Unless you don’t have a corkscrew on hand.
In that case, you may find yourself staring down the alcohol section of the grocery store, scratching your head as you search for something else to drink. If you were me, you would have found this.
I’m going to agree with most of what everyone has said here. There’s a distinct white grape note and it reminds me quite a bit of sparkling apple cider. The aftertaste is where the tea flavor comes in for me. Occasionally I get a hint of jasmine, but it’s pretty fleeting. It is, indeed, sweet, but I wouldn’t call it saccharine by any means.
I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, and Golden Star has definitely given theirs some careful attention. Come an event like New Years, I might consider bringing a few bottles of this out for those not inclined to drink alcohol. [This does contain traces – less than 0.5%, according to the label.] In regards to regular consumption, however, there isn’t enough of a tea flavor for me to keep this in the fridge.
It was nice to try something a little different, though! And when it came to classing up my bath, it did the trick.
