You may be wondering, "Is it safe for humans to drink? But in fact, I heard that matajibi has a surprising history.
Since ancient times, matsutabi has been used as a tea and herbal medicine to treat coldness, neuralgia, and fatigue. There is a theory that the name "matatabi" comes from the fact that travelers who were tired after a long journey ate it, regained their energy, and were able to continue their "journey" again. In northern Japan, it is called "eating hot spring.
The drink is said to be the perfect energy drink for daily recovery and nourishment, so expectations for the taste are high!
What does it taste like?
Let's try it right away.
・・・・・・The carbonation is very strong on the throat!
The aroma is a little bit peculiar, but the taste is not too sweet and it is very easy to drink. To be honest, I have never eaten mata-tabi, but there is even mata-tabi sake, so I guess it can be used as an energy drink as well! On the official HICAT Hi-ENERGY website, there are some suggestions on how to drink it with alcohol, such as "Hi-Cat Ball with Whiskey". It is highly carbonated, so it certainly looks delicious with alcohol.
The drink is a handy size (95 ml), so it is a great way to consume energy drinks easily. Even though it is highly carbonated, this amount of energy drink can be consumed without difficulty.
Let's reset your depressed mood with "HICAT Hi-ENERGY"!
