Aloe Vera King ‘Natural’

Aloe Vera King 'Natural'Made by: OKF Corp

Origin: Korea

Imported into the UK by: 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.

Aloe Vera King is a slightly cloudy, non-carbonated drink containing small flakes of Aloe Vera plant in suspension. On the nose there is a pronounced aroma of Concord grape juice, fresh grape skins (reminding me of Muscat), honeysuckle and a cucumber note (possibly the Aloe).

The aromas soon settle down and the palate is light and well-diluted with flavours of clear honey, marshmallows, icing sugar, followed by cucumber, with finally those Concord grapes emerging on the short finish. The balance falls just on the sweeter side, emphasised by the combination of honey and grape flavours. The small, soft flakes of Aloe Vera add interest and a light texture.
