In China, there is a beverage known as the biochemical weapon of the beverage industry and the "living Rip" of the biochemical weapons industry. It is the Qingdao specialty Laoshan Baihua Snake Grass Water, which is frightened by netizens all over the country.

If you want to choose the best drink, everyone will talk about it, but if you want to say the worst drink, then Laoshan white snake grass water dare to say the second, no one dares to call the first. Its unpalatable degree can be said to be effortlessly squeezed into the TOP3 list of the worst beverage in China, and it has the reputation of "soul holy water" in the beverage industry of our country.

It can be said that everyone who has drunk it is doing their best to use the most twisted adjectives they can think of. For example, one person who has drunk it describes it as: "the taste is like, the smell of people who do physical work in the sun every day without taking a bath, sleep on a mat for ten years, and then boil it in the fire."

What kind of spark would it make if this bottle of Laoshan White Snake Grass Water, known as "Soul Holy Water", was added to the coffee?

Recently, the official account of Qingdao Laoshan Mineral Water Company said that it has teamed up with TIMS Coffee to create a "healthy and refreshing" Laoshan White Snake Grass Water-cooled extract Coffee, which is limited to the Qingdao area.

In fact, as early as mid-July last year, to celebrate the arrival of Tims in Qingdao Laoshan Mineral Spring Museum, the two brands launched a "hard core special", white snake grass green orange fresh coffee. But because it was only sold in the red house of Tims trestle at that time, it didn't get much attention. The launch of Laoshan white snake grass water-cooled extract is just on the eve of Labour Day holiday, not only online takeout platform, but also play buy one get one free discount, it quickly attracted the attention of Qingdao people and non-Qingdao people on the social platform.

For this cup of Laoshan snake grass, whose name is hard enough, people in Qingdao, who enjoy local privileges, are already using their whole body to express their resistance before they drink it. "the people of Qingdao first respect yue", "this must not taste bad to death", "is this going to torture people", "drink needs first aid", "this is a new way of vomiting".

On the other hand, they know a little about the taste of Laoshan white snake grass water, but non-local netizens who are not in Qingdao think that it is right to sell it in a limited area, and that not being able to buy it outside Qingdao is its only advantage.

It is understood that Laoshan Baihua snake grass water, also known as snake grass health water. The "Hedyotis diffusa" in the water of Hedyotis diffusa in Laoshan Mountain is actually a kind of herb recorded in the Compendium of Materia Medica, called Hedyotis diffusa, and the unpleasant smell of "stale straw mat" described by people also comes from it. This grass basically grows only in the south, and it is also a kind of medicine for dehumidification, sterilization and anti-inflammation. It is also found in the herbal tea drunk by many friends in Guangdong.

So in theory, white snake grass water is actually less like a drink, more like a medicine, herbal tea, or health products. Since it is said to be "medicine", then naturally it is not for the good taste. But it is such an oddly tasty health drink that is targeted by coffee people who like to "stir up trouble" and cobble together a "dream combination".

In fact, the appearance of Laoshan white snake grass water in coffee is earlier than we thought. Some netizens have dug up the old photos collected many years ago. A cafe was launched eight years ago in the city of Vientiane in Qingdao, and was put on the menu under the name of "too noisy loneliness". Sure enough, the end of fashion is retro!
