Aloe Vera King ‘Natural’ Grape Taste

Aloe Vera King 'Natural' Grape TasteMade by: OKF Corp

Origin: Korea

Imported into the UK: Korea Foods Co Ltd

Aloe Vera is a succulent (water storing) plant and member of the Lily family, whose origins can be traced back to its role in Ancient Egyptian medicine. It has long been known and appreciated for its role in skincare and the treatment of skin aliments like burns, infection, cuts & grazes, bites & stings. Aloe Juice is made from the nutrient rich gel found inside the hollow cavity in the leaf stems. Whole leaf Aloe Vera is also made by pulping both the inner gel & outer leaves together. Drinking Aloe Vera juice is widespread throughout Asia and South America, and is said to aid digestion and promote internal health along the digestive tract.

This version of Aloe Vera King is a pinkish red, slightly cloudy and non-carbonated drink containing small flakes of Aloe Vera plant in suspension. Nosing this, the aroma of Concord grapes make the first impression, followed by Turkish delight, cherry jam and a warm leafy note (think of rose petal).

The palate is light but satisfying, with flavours of clear honey and earthy red fruits, fresh and perfectly balanced before a finish of cherrystones ends on a herbal note (imagine warm grass).
