Adina Holistics Herbal Elixir Cranberry Grapefruit with Goji


Since the Blackberry Hibiscus with Rooibos flavored Holistics tasted great, I thought I’d give another shot for Adina’s Holistics Herbal Elixir beverages and see if there are other unique tastes being created by using different flavor combinations. I grabbed a bottle of cranberry grapefruit with Goji because I’ve tried many herbal soups with Goji before and wonder how it will taste with fruits. According to the Adina Drink No Evil, Goji is for health and wellness. Unleash the Monkey!

The design of the glass bottle is quite stylish and elegant. The monkey character and stylish fonts of the words makes the label very attractive. The moment you removed the cap, you are greeted by a cranberry aroma coming out from the glass bottle, but not much of grapefruit scent. The color of this organic beverage is light red, similar to most of the berry beverages that are out there on the market. The texture of this Adina beverage is very clean, smooth and fresh. My reaction after first couple sips was “This monkey drink tastes good!” It was very refreshing and you could actually sense the existence of berry flavor right away where other beverages you had to chuck down 1/4 before you could tell if the flavors in the drink. The sweetness of the drink did not adds up and it wasn’t overly sweetened either. It has this crisp fruit flavor taste to it and the flavors were well balanced with the sweetness, but you could only taste the cranberry flavor, not much of grapefruit flavor. As for the Goji flavor, normally it tastes sour by itself if you add purely boiled water to it, but since it’s mixed with other fruits, you couldn’t really taste it. There’s no aftertaste for this monkey beverage.

The word Goji is translated from the sound of Chinese Pinyin Gou Qi and it is also known as wolfberry, medlar, mede berry, etc. Not only this Goji can be used as a medicine, but also can be used for cooking. For those who might have heard of herbal soup that Chinese people make, especially in Hong Kong, they put tree skins, Goji and other grass into the soup so that it will enhances your body health. Anyway, this Holistics Elixir Cranberry Grapefruit with Goji contains 60 calories, 15g sugar, 15g Carbs and 5mg of sodium. The organic herbal blends in this beverage includes:  Ginseng Root Xxtract, Gotu kola extract, White tea, Astragalus root extract, Eleuthero root extract and Tulsi leaf extract. Other ingredients includes: Organic Brewed Tea, Organic sugar,Natural grapefruit cranberry goji flavors, Citric acid, Ginseng, Pectin, etc. Assume that you will get the health and wellness benefits from drinking this beverage.

Overall, I love the taste and I think it’s better than the Blackberry Hibiscus with Rooibos flavor even thought blackberry was tasty. Which flavor should I try next?
