Fentiman's Dandelion & Burdock

Fentiman's has been making fermented and botanically brewed drinks since 1905; this one features dandelion and burdock roots, both good nutritionally. It also has ginger and aniseed flavour. The sweetness of the "soda" comes from cane sugar, pear juice concentrate and glucose syrup. This tasted interesting, not quite like the burdock root that I've eaten, but similar, the licorice flavour of the aniseed came out strongest. While this is a better soda, I don't think I liked it enough to drink it on a regular basis, and it is more expensive than soda.
