“Sweet and bitter” is not a phrase I can use to describe many things, but the contradictory phrase seems apt here. Natsu mikan is a kind of bitter tangerine native to Asia. (“Natsu” also means “summer”, referring to when the fruit ripens, thus making it an appropriate summer limited edition.) The tastes clash bitterly here, and to me I feel like drinking this chuuhai is like swallowing medicine. T_T

Wow, this chuuhai really has the taste of green apples! I personally don’t associate granny smiths with the summer, but oh well. The high level of sugar gives the drink a very smooth and sweet taste, but it’s sweeter than I’d prefer.
