Pearl Soda Company Soda Syrup Dancing Dragon (Sarsaparilla Puerh)

If you’re looking for a natural tasting beverage this is certainly for you. I don’t know what this has to do with a dragon, dancing or not, but what I do know is that it tastes like someone made a soda out of throat coat tea and it’s a little much. I like sips of this drink. I’ve been nursing the glass I made for the past 45 minutes. If I take tiny sips it’s enjoyable, but if I drink too much at once it becomes a bit too overpowering and medicinal. If you’re not familiar with throat coat (which is absolutely wonderful hot) imagine chewing on a licorice stick (the plant not the candy) while drinking some black tea. It’s pleasant and helps your throat. It’s not quite the same in soda form but it is a re-imagining of a classic soda.
In here the tea is a mixture of pu-erh (fermented tea)and yerba mate. The rest of the flavor comes from a combination of sarsaparilla root and honeybush. It kind of tastes the way a natural market smells. Take that as you will. To me it’s not bad thing, but it certainly is unique. Out of all of these tea sodas, this is the one that is certainly not for everyone.
