In Guangzhou, a major city in the south of China, I often see street vendor slinging freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. The last time I went there I bought bottle to try. Sugar cane is obviously used to make sugar, so I imagined this drink to be super sweet. This, however, was not the case. Sure, it was sweet, but no sweeter than any other fruit juice. It tasted a little “grassy” to me. Makes sense, I guess, as I believe sugar cane officially is a sort of grass.
