I love the lychee fruit and lychee-based drinks. I love not only the mellow taste but the fragrance of the white fruit. So, imagine my excitement when I saw Lychee Chuuhai. I’ve had Chinese Lychee wine – and love it to death – so this should naturally be my new favorite thing. Yet, while sipping this chuuhai it just seems wrong somehow. The initial taste is a well-blended mix of lychee flavoring with soda water which is neither too sweet nor not sweet enough. However, there is a subtle yet unpleasant aftertaste I can only describe as “chemical.” I am heart-broken and shall not be trying TaKaRa’s Limited Edition Lychee Chuuhai again.
