Two words that you never want to see on your bottled beverage.
Tonight I tried a new drink with my dinner. Lychee juice. I’m not a fan of lychee’s necessarily but I find that their flavor is pretty mild so I wasn’t too concerned. And, I was sucked in by the pretty label and the pleasant pink color.
I could tell that it had little fruit chunks in it, which I have become accustomed to here, but once I got back to my classroom and read this on the label…gross.
The drink was delicious, a sweet though very mild flavor. The fruit chunks give it a nice consistency as well. But “enjoy chewing” AND a heart?!?! really?
And for those who don’t know what a lychee is (because I didn’t pre-Korea), it’s an odd little fruit. It’s a soapberry.
Lychees have the texture of peeled grapes but it’s firmer. It has a clean, fruity essence (because that makes sense in my head) but the taste is fairly non-existent. It’s not unpleasant.
