Steven Seagal's poop in a can...errrrr energy drink.
I have located the Ark of the Covenant my fellow caffeine addicts. Super Shihan Steven Seagal, the "best god damn immunologist/navy Seal chef/detective/journalist/EPA Agent in the country" has emerged from depths of Japan's herbal underbelly, or maybe from underneath a table at Sonny's covered in barbeque sauce, with the answer to our prayers.
Deep within his "crystal cave", while smashing his hands against a beaten up Fender Stratocaster like a monkey with touretts sitting at a computer, Mr. Seagal discovered long lost NEVER BEFORE USED energy drink ingredients...the mystical Tibetan Goji Berries and Asian Cordyceps.
Goji berries, i.e., the Wolfberry, is a fruit of Asian origin that is heaped in fantastical tails of its supposed health benefits due tio the fruit be rich in antioxidants. There have been very few clinical trials testing the Wolfberry stories and the actual health benefit of the plant is currently a matter of speculation. However, as a side note, it is commonly used as an ingredient in fungicides and pesticides in China. There are conflicting reports of whether the Tibetan berry and the Chinese berry are distinct species, but there is apparently no scientific data to confirm that they are indeed different. Thus, if you choose not to consume this wonderful drink from the "orient" you can use it to kill carpenter ants.
Cordyceps, is a species of entomopathogenic fungus, or fungus that are parasitic of insects. Here is a Wiki quickie for those interested....

The kanji on the can means "Chi", that's right, this drink is a mandatory dietary supplement and has become a staple in the Yellow Bamboo and Aikido dojo's world wide. Why the kanji for "Chi", you ask?........HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THE SEAGAL YOU INSOLENT LITTLE PRICK!!!! Well, here is your answer.....

This stuff is disgusting. I did not try the Root Beer Rush, but I was lucky enough to try the Cherry Charge and the Asian Experience.
I had really, REALLY, high hopes for the Asian Experience....lights were down low, wife was at the grocery store with the kids, my lotion and masterbachair were in perfect Feng Shui positioning. I crack the can and take a huge gulp expecting Asia Carrera and all I get is the taste of the underside of a pony's nutsack after being shut out of the barn on a dusty 100 degree day. Asian experience my ass. I couldn't even finish the can.
The Cherry Rush tasted worse than expired Robitussin that had been rolling around in the back of your car all summer long. I was able to take one more sip of this than the Asian Experience (so 2 sips) before pouring it down the drain.
Worst energy drink everrrrrrrrr........so, I leave you with this.

Best drink review ever.
I've had a can of this crap for 2 years and I've never even thought of drinking it. It's actually sitting on my desk in a little mini-hakama from an article I did years ago.
