First Taste – Ting

This is documentation of the first taste of the Jamaican drink, Ting. Tasting a “pink” flavoured version of a drink that I cherished as child, forces a connection between childhood memories of the past and new experiences in the present. The original flavour’s taste recalls a time when I longed to be older, while the pink flavour’s taste becomes associated with a time in which I dread entering into adulthood.
