R’member C’HI ? “His master’s voice…”
No, that’s not it… “The drink that knows it’s own name”?
Well @chidrinks has been hard at work creating this new shit called CH’I Sparkling Ginger Spiced.
I remember Ch’i being a refreshing lightly flavoured and carbonated herbal drink. Apparently derived from an ancient Chinese potion with medicinal properties, Ch’i has steered clear of actually claiming any solid health benefits, but it does contain ginger and aloe and some shit called Goku Cola, though. Kamehameha!
Oh wait, no, it actually says: Gotu Kola – which is an eastern pennywort. Damn, I wish there was such a thing as Goku Cola. I would totally drink that shit.
After opening the bottle and dusting away the broken glass from a nearby window that had shattered due to the resounding declaration of its own name, I put the elixir to my lips and drank deeply as car and house alarms blared in the distance and a single drop of blood rolled from my ear and slid down my neck. Nice to hear that after all these years, and even in this new incarnation, CH’I was confident in affirming itself when the cap is twisted off the bottle.
They have actually done something quite remarkable with this drink. They have captured the bite of a sharp ginger beer and somehow smoothed it down with the mild, tasty but inoffensive flavour of Ch’i. Also extra points for not going the way of being too sweet with this stuff either. Sweet but not cloying sweet. Refreshing and works well in summer. What did you folk think of this shit?
Say Ch’i’s – 7.5/10
