Dude. I definitely feel like kombucha is an acquired taste.
Personally, I don’t lie straight kombucha. This is my sister’s favourite one from GT, but I prefer my kombucha with chia seed since I feel like it takes a bit of the vinegar-y/acidic taste.
This is good! I like guava so much more than the gingery Trilogy.
I’ve decided to just add chia seed to the bottles of kombucha in the fridge. Makes it much tastier :)

Ahh yes. First cup of tea for the day because today was so freakin busy okay.
I didn’t get to my morning matcha so I was like falling asleep in class dang :/

But yeah. This is… okay. It’s very ginger-y and weird and ahh just drinking it to get rid of it


In other news, I think I pulled a muscle and I’m like limping all over the house right now.
I’ve got a midterm tomorrow and I barely studied.
I have lunch reservations for RKR, the student-run restaurant on campus (I’ll be taking that class next year!), and I’ve had those reservations for MONTHS now, and like half my party bailed on me today even when I asked them last week they said they’d be there.
I seem to be the only one who understands how to map for our anthro project and everyone’s emailing me and I’m like I HAVE OTHER THINGS TO TEND TO. GOODBYE.
I’m not even going to study for one of my midterms cuz I’ll need a 65% to pass that class with an A.
I have a nasty attitude when I get stressed out and I feel like everyone hates me because I don’t want to help them. Am v sorry. Going to tend to my needs first. kthxbai.

DISNEY IN LESS THAN TEN. ANOTHER THING TO STRESS OVER WOW.

You know, I keep forgetting that Kombucha is tea!
I personally prefer the ones with chia in it cuz I sorta love the texture.
This is the first time I’ve had regular non-chia Synergy.

I saw wee specks of silver stuff at the bottom of this and shook the bottle, not expecting it to explode on me! My sister told me that the ones with chia are the ones that are slightly carbonated, but I didn’t expect the regular ones with be carbonated as well haha. But still, I managed to shake it up a bit and pour it over ice as I watch Iron Man :)

Umm.. yeah this isn’t the greatest kombucha I’ve tasted. It tastes like… GINGER. YES. PINK CARBONATED GINGER. Sister loves it though and she just left, dang. Ahh well, I’ll just finish up this glass and I’ll just drink it little by little over the week :)

Do you know if adding chia to other teas will have the mild carbonating effect?

jump62359

Naww. My sister told me that it has the carbonation because the kombucha is fermented tea. Adding chia seeds only adds a bit of a texture, no carbonation.
If you want to add chia seeds, I suggest overleafing a bit because it like sucks some of the flavour for the chia to expand and all :)

carol who

Oh well, good thought! Thanks!

Kombucha is tea!

So I got a bottle of the Original. And poured about 1/4 of it into a cup to try. (New things every 2-4 weeks, don’t ya know.)

It tastes like super mild apple cider! The really yeasty stuff my mom gets!

SOLD.

Used the rest of the bottle, tea (Assam Mangalam from Zen Tea and Nepal Black from DavidsTea), and sugar, to start my own culture!

Apparently you can use flavoured teas? Ooo… the possibilities are endless.

I will definitely be making an apple kombucha. And serving it to my mom. Just to see what she thinks.

:D

Update on this weird little concoction: It’s making me verrrrry sleepy and drowsy, and I only drank maybe a fifth of the bottle. The label says that it contains a “trace amount of alcohol,” so just be careful if you are planning to try kombucha anytime soon, and definitely don’t drink it and then drive, or use it to try to wake up in the morning! Thank God I waited until I got home to open it and don’t have anywhere else to be today.

My first real Kombucha!

This is a very unique tea product. It’s like having a soda. It’s bubbly. There are also little bits of the SCOBY at the bottom.

I mostly taste the ginger. This doesn’t really feel like drinking tea at all. It’s a very earthy, very raw, very strange experience.

Probably won’t buy another one of these. It’s a little too out there for me. Even though I know it’s super good for you.

Oh well.

drank Gingerade by G.T. Kombucha

Upon arriving in FL I was immediately slammed with allergies, almost instant overall irritation & swelling, along with sinus & bronchial crap. This happens every time I come to visit my folks. My healing plan has been rest, stay in air conditioning, Nettles & Elderberry teas, & a daily pint of Kombucha, sipped throughout the day, because my guts hurt too. I’m finally getting my appetite back, & starting to feel better.

I like this kombucha. So far this has been the only flavor I’ve liked, & I love ginger, so that should be no surprise. I also got a bottle of GT’s Third Eye Chai, which I’ll probably report on tomorrow.

jeweledthumb

Hope you’re feeling better! I know how miserable sinus issues can be. Actually, even though I wasn’t the biggest fan, I ordered the Davidstea stormy night because of just how much it helped. It tastes pretty good with some milk and sweetener and it really opened me up!

Terri HarpLady

Thanks. I finally broke down & started taking zyrtech, as much as I hate any & all meds, this is ridiculous. I asked for the strongers over the counter, the pharmacist recommended this. Hopefully I’ll notice a difference! :)

I love this stuff!
I don’t drink it all the time, but I did buy a case a few days ago.
As a person who believes that we are all walking talking SCOBYs (that means Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria & Yeast), I think it’s important to make sure the cultures you’re made of are healthy. I think Kombucha can support that health, but with my own personal history of addiction, I was a little nervous about drinking Kombucha at first. Some brands are pretty ‘hoochie’, if you know what I mean, but GTs Kombuchas have been consistently awesome. This is really the only flavor I like, being a ginger fanatic, but it is VERY good! I drink it occasionally with a meal, especially when I’ve been going out to eat too often, or when I feel that my immune system is fighting something. Both of those apply this morning. I’m also eating a bowl of my homemade Kimchi, for the same reason. It’s loaded with life, very tangy!

drank Mystic Mango by G.T. Kombucha
1196 tasting notes

I got a $50 Whole Foods gift card with credit card points, so I’m using it to buy the things I don’t buy because I’m cheap like coconut milk yogurt and my favorite frozen mac and cheese and local juice and oh yeah kombucha.

How many times have I walked past the cooler of kombucha and drinks with chia seeds floating in them and really thought about it…plenty.

…this actually isn’t bad. I figured my best bet would be something with fruit to at least try it out and yeah, I can handle this. It’s only 5% juice but it’s still pretty juicy, like a smoothie. Granted it’s puree and not juice so that helps.

It does have the slightly acidic, tangy, vinegar taste that I was fearful of but it actually isn’t that bad. Granted, when I want to get a reeeeeally nice beer I hop for something fruity and Belgian, and those tend to be pretty sour. So it’s kind of like drinking one of those that’s had the alcohol nearly removed and comes with more fruit.

And it is making me oddly feel better, because I have been sleeping nearly all day hoping not to get sick. I don’t know if preventative hibernation really does anything, but that’s why I have this, the juice, and a cold remedy tea. Just in case. Worst thing that happens they help out my allergy meds.

I think I may be willing to try a plain one sometime soon, especially if this really helps me feel better. Now if only it could ask for a test review sheet since I missed the class on Thursday due to napping too long. Wahhh.

Bonnie

How fun! I’m totally with you on this. How many times have I looked at those seeds floating and walked on by.

This is honestly my favorite commercial Kombucha. If you don’t have time to brew it at home, GTs Classic Original is as good as it gets.

The original was a bit too much for me, but I did enjoy the strawberry one much more.

Thanks to Tamm I have been craving this! I broke down and bought one today. The guava puree is delicious and is the perfect foil for the fizzy, fermented kombucha. It’s true the flavor is quite vinegary and sour, but I kinda like that! It reminds me a bit of beer.

If they weren’t so expensive, I’m sure I’d be drinking them all the time. Yay for probiotics!

Will Work For Tea

I miss the version that they made before they were recalled a couple years ago. They use to be more potent and fizzier. I liked them better that way! :)

Tamm

I know about the cost thing! These are super tasty. If the cost was less I’d probably order this one by the case. I think it’s become my favorite one! lolol Share the craving!

I had a bad day so I picked up one of these to go along with dinner. It tastes very similar to the guava one. Overall this is one that I would recommend due to the more harmonious mix of flavors. This is sweet with a punch! Overall I’d purchase this one again.

drank Trilogy by G.T. Kombucha

I really wanted to try another one of these last night so I picked this one up. It was the last one, so using my past method of choice being the one that has the most sold, I chose this. It really is not as pleasant as the others in this line. The vinegar smell is really overt in it and the flavors (raspberry, ginger, lemon) don’t really stand a chance. The ginger becomes the most prominent flavor in this; and to be honest, although familiarly like something my best friend’s mom used to make, is somewhat unpleasant in large doses. I really didn’t want to finish this one, but I did because I bought it at full price. This tastes more like a health tonic and less like something fun.
I wouldn’t really recommend it unless you are trying to look like a hippie who is trying to do alternative medicine…

drank Strawberry Serenity by G.T. Kombucha
537 tasting notes

Dear self:
Never, ever, look at what your drinking when you are enjoying this stuff. Scummy floaties are a real turn off for me. The vinegar smell in this is much more subdued than the guava one that I had yesterday. I started to read a bit more about this and really, these can’t be as healthy as they say they are…I tend not to trust branding which puts the “healthy” aspects of their product as the first line of defense instead of the actual quality/taste; even though this is excellent.
I’m pairing this with a particular honey greek yogurt and they match really well! This tastes much more jam-like than the guava. The fizzy aspect is much lighter as well. I think I figured out that the reason why I drink this slower is because it’s so damn fizzy! If I drink it any faster I think it would upset my tummy. I really find this to be pleasant without being too sweet or too vinegary. I think that out of the two, this one strikes the best balance; which is probably why this was the last one left!!!

I was having a bit of a bad week and decided that I deserved one of these. I really have enjoyed this one the few times I’ve had it. There was a mango one that I had not seen before, but due to the strangeness of many of these, I chose this!This is fruity and tart and probably the strangest thing I really enjoy drinking.

TeaBrat

these are yummy but I haven’t had one in ages!

Tamm

I haven’t had one for a couple months. It’s a really rare treat. :p Tasty though!

Hope your weekend makes up for your hard week! :)

Aw thank you very much! That was really sweet! :D

I feel like a total hippy for drinking this. But lo! My local store was having a sale on these and I figured it had been long enough that I may find one I like. I grabbed this one and one other to try out.
This took me awhile to actually drink. It is pretty big (16 oz). The smell right off the bat screams vinegar; which is pretty unpleasant. But the actual drink itself is pretty nice. I felt that the tangy-ness from the vinegar flavor helped out the tartness of the guava. Overall I would buy this one again. Bonus though for me is the super low sugar amount (14g) when compared to a soda. I will always turn down soda in favor of water/tea but this would be nice to have on hand to spice things up a bit.
The normal cost is pretty high ($3.75-ish) but on sale these were $2.50. Although that price isn’t really ideal either, it is nice to splurge every now and again.

TeaBrat

I like this stuff too, but it is very pricey!

Tamm

I know right? I think that may be part of why I’ve avoided buying in the past. My first bottle was so weird to me that I dumped it. I actually got smart this time and since they were on sale I just picked some from ones that were the most empty. >:) I used my deductive skills to find the popular ones!

I drink kombucha fairly regularly, but as someone who’s not into the taste of alcohol, I tend to shy away from this brand. However, my local grocery store just started carrying it, so it’s on sale, and I figured, why not? After all, I really liked their line of chia teas, so I figured I’d give them another chance. I grabbed the Trilogy flavor, which is lemon, ginger, and raspberry. I adore lemon and raspberry, but I’m generally not a fan of ginger drinks; however, this flavor rules. I think this tastes better than bucha’s rose verbena, which was my favorite kombucha brand and flavor before today. I never thought I’d find a kombucha I could enjoy and not just look at as something I had to drink, but I think this might be it. It does go flat pretty quickly, but I find that most kombuchas mellow out when they’re flat, anyway.

I prefer the multi-green over the original. It’s good.

Trilogy is my favorite. It could stand to be not so acidic and have a little more sweetener. I picked up a local brewer’s brand in Black Mountain, NC that was really good – Small company owned by 2 young mother’s called Kombucha Mamas.

I tried this tea for the first time on the second day of a 30 day juice fast. It blew me away! Now I know the fermentation causes the carbonation and that is one of the values of drinking Kombucha but I couldn’t handle all the fizz in my stomach so I put the lid on and shook it up a little. Letting the fizz out unlocks the deeper taste and doesn’t hurt the stomach.
