It's been out every summer for a couple of years. I recall it as light 
with a hint of lemon, drinkable but really not anything special. Then 
again, as Master A. mentioned, it *is* mass-produced.

I'm mostly just peeved at my local Whole Foods for not carrying long 
pepper but not grains of paradise.

And, for the obligatory actual period food reference, I am going to be
making jalabs again for the summer, and I plan on attempting the 
pomegranate jalab again. This time I think I might try the crock pot--I've 
never heard of anyone caramelizing sugar in a crock pot. ;-)
