Woah – smells like beer! I’ve never had Kombucha tea before so I expected it to taste similar to an oolong. Actually it tastes more like an alcoholic cooler in my opinion – this is a fermented tea, but it was being sold with all the normal, non-alcoholic drinks so I didn’t think there would be any significant alcohol involved. Huh.

It has a fruity flavour that makes me think of plums combined with something a bit yeasty. It’s an odd mix of sweet and sour and it leaves a strange taste on my tongue.

I’m not sure what I think of this drink except maybe ‘weird’. Really weird.

Wow, that definitely doesn’t sound like something I would like. Beer smell… shudder

Yeah I wasn’t too thrilled. I’ve just realized what the aftertaste reminded me of – apple cider vinegar. Bleh!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
