I bought this at our local Asian market last time I was there for boba. It was kind of a ‘Why not’ purchase at a ‘why not’ price. I actually had no idea what I was purchasing at the time as the box was entirely in Vietnamese and I had never seen a noni fruit.
Well, since then I’ve put off drinking it after reading about it’s pungent taste and smell and wondering what I had done.
Tonight I broke it open. And it didn’t smell good.
But surprisingly I didn’t hate it.
It has a kind of earthy barley flavor that isn’t all offensive. It’s not at all what I was expecting (probably a good thing in this case). I still absolutely don’t like the smell, but I could almost see myself drinking this once in a while.
