(sample bottle BBE May/17) Clear pale gold with a white head that quickly fades to a thin ring of foam around glass.
Aromatic and perfumed with green apple, apple blossom, lime zest and light crystallised ginger.
Fairly subtle in flavour with a soft mouthfeel and low carbonation. Refreshing green apple and zesty lime with faint crystallised ginger flavour but not spice. More subtle botanical influences include notes of ginseng and dried wormwood blossom.
Lingering lime and crisp apple skin.
As non-alcoholic carbonated drinks go, especially considering its mere 99 calories per bottle, T&E No.1 is excellent, offering temperance drinkers a refreshing alternative. Best summed up as being low in carbonation, dilute sparkling green apple juice with a hint of lime and subtle herbal complexity.
