I received a sample of this from Variatea! Thanks! :)
On the first sip, my immediate thought was “pickle juice?!”. What the? Even after reading that it is supposed to be apricot and cream, I still get that. There is this tang that is mildly pickley. When I sweeten it, it just tastes like a sweet version of what I was tasting. I don’t know what I did to this sample or what I had it next to that it may have been absorbing odd flavors from, but this is not right! It is actually making me laugh a bit. My husband tried a sip and said that he tastes fruit, but also what I was talking about. I will definitely give this another go someday and see what I make of it then!
