This was my first cuppa Green Kombucha by Yogi and overall, it is worth more. The first impression on taking it out of the packet was an overwhelming spearmint scent to the point that I was worried that was all I would taste as well. The box recommends using “very near” boiling water and a 3 minute steep time and I followed those steps.
The first sip gave me a happy light taste of plum, a tart lemongrass aftertaste, and mint refreshment throughout. The mint scent tamed down considerably once under water.
The second brew with one bag was very pale and much less enjoyable even though I left the tea bag in the cup while I drank it. I didn’t try a third.
It is billed as aiding in digestive and immune functions; I won’t put any money on either unless I drank it constantly and there are too many great teas out there to enjoy.
So this is a good tasting tea but not the best bang for my buck since I can’t re-brew it.

glad to hear it’s drinkable – I just rec’d a sample too. Your notes give me a great idea of what to expect!

Bio

I’m 57, used to be I/T project & program manager and live with a pug (Rhumba). I drink white- and green teas almost exclusively to cut down on caffeine.

I enjoyed black tea in college when I drank gallons all day long. Unfortunately the only tea available then was Lipton & Nestea. sigh What a difference now, in the stores and with the Internet.

I’ve been inspired by all of your taste notes to try different manufacturers, URLs, and flavors, so thank you Steepers.
