The Chinese Coca ColaPosted: December 5, 2011
A review of Chin Chin Grass Jelly drink from T&T.
It’s not green. Instead, grass jelly is dark, almost black. Grass jelly is made from leaves and stalks of a plant related to the mint family. Often times, it is served as a drink or even as a dessert in China, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
In this drink, there was grass jelly liquid and grass jelly. It was a snack and a drink at the same time (like bubble tea).
Grass Jelly Liquid – it’s kind of like a Chinese version of Coca Cola but it’s not fizzy, and it has a “grassy” taste to it (no kidding)
Grass Jelly – it’s hard to pour out of the can. The grass jelly is tasty, but you’d be enjoying it at the end of the can or cup if you don’t have a bubble tea straw handy.
Cost – $0.89 per can, so it’s cheap
Judy says, “oh la la, I like it.” Cy says, “it’s gross.”
