The youthful owners--National Pingtung University of Science and Technology graduates Tsai Fu-liang and his wife Chang Yu-hsuan--have devoting their lives to researching the vinegar-drinking culture, seeking ingredients to brew vinegar, researching bacteria species, and following traditional fermenting steps to produce the best-flavored vinegars. Nine different vinegar series have been developed to promote vinegar drinking and healthy concepts. --By Uvia Chang, translated by Erica Lin
A. Vinegar flavors like Signature Hibiscus, Mango, Coffee, Japanese Green Tea, and Herbs are sold in beer-like bottles. Concentration levels can be tailored to more diluted (NT$90), medium (NT$110) and less diluted (NT$140) per 250cc cup. These sweet, refreshing beverages have different layers of flavor and a pleasant aftertaste.
