Solixir Sparkling Botanical Beverage

0

Couple of days ago, I received a package from Solixir for sampling their all natural functional beverages. Solixir was started under “Being a health-conscience person, it always bothered me that it was hard to find an all-natural, functional drink that matched my lifestyle. Most options had too many artificial ingredients or too much sugar. I knew there could be a better choice, so I decided to turn my vision into reality with solixir.” The function for the beverages was implemented by using different botanical supplements. Currently, they have three different functional beverages: Awaken, Restore and Relax.

Solixir Sparkling Botanical Beverage

Solixir Botanical Supplement Beverage –Awaken Orange Mate

The aroma coming out from the can smelled quite different than what I had expected. It was a combination of orange with herbs and ginger. If you sniff it long enough, then you will notice that the orange and ginger scents were the dominate ones in the aroma. Also, it reminded me of an orange ginger chicken dish that I had in the past and it wasn’t that bad either. As for the color, I was expecting it to be orange according to its main flavor, but it came out yellow. The texture was similar to a regular sparkling drink with the exception of slightly more carbonation in it. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted bland and I thought I was drinking sparkling water. After couple more sips, it’s still difficult to detect the flavors, but there’s a very subtle ginger spicy aftertaste. As you drink more, you will notice the sweetness of this drink was never that strong and it’s the same for the orange flavor as well. When your mouth processes the sip, you greeted with the smooth subtle orange flavor first and then ended the spicy taste after you swallow down the sip.

Solixir Botanical Supplement Beverage –Relax Blackberry Chamomile

The aroma for this sparkling botanical supplement was mostly blackberry scent with subtle botanical scents. The color for this drink was close to blackberry and the texture was the same as the above orange mate flavor. As for the taste, again the first sip was bland and difficult to detect the main flavors. The blackberry flavor was light just like the previous orange flavor. After couple more sips, the only botanical flavors that you could sense was the hibiscus flavor some how. The drink it self was very smooth, clean and very pleasant to drink. After chugging down half of the drink, you will notice there’s a subtle tart taste at the end after your swallow down the sip.

Solixir Botanical Supplement Beverage –Restore Pomegranate Ginger

This aroma for this flavor was a bit different than the previous two because the aroma was difficult to detect and after sniff it around the can opening for couple seconds it was more of ginger scent than the pomegranate scent. The color of this beverage was toward light red-esh brown and the texture was the same as the previous flavors. The taste was light as expected since after trying two flavors. The pomegranate and ginger taste was half and half. One thing about the ginger flavor was that it wasn’t spicy like the ginger in the orange mate flavor. The herbal flavors were well balanced with the pomegranate and ginger flavors because they were very subtle. There’s dryness feeling on your tongue for the aftertaste. Also, just like the previous flavors, this one was smooth and pleasant to drink as well.

Solixir Sparkling Botanical Beverage

Overall, these Solixir botanical supplement sparkling beverages tasted good and if you like light flavor drinks, then Solixir might be the right choice for you. All three flavors got the light fruity taste. Personally, I like the Solixir Botanical Supplement Beverage –Relax Blackberry Chamomile over other two flavors. As for function wise, it wasn’t that bad compare to other functional drinks. Thanks for sending the samples Solixir!
