Recent Tasting Notes
I haven’t had kombucha in a long time, so I decided to stop after work today to grab one. I’ve had this flavor before and enjoyed it a lot. I think the sweetness of the pear works really well with the taste of fermented tea, and it smooths out the sharpness of the ginger. It’s a bottle of fizzy, fruity, happy buzz. I think oolong tea works the best with the SCOBY process, because it’s already such a complex tea type. You can mix almost anything with it once it’s fermented and it will taste good.
I haven’t been very healthy lately with my eating habits. In between hunting for a “real” job and finally spending time with my boyfriend after I graduated from my college, which was hours away from where he lives, my diet just hasn’t been a priority. As a result, my pants are a little tight these days. I want to do something about that before my eating gets too out-of-control, and I’m thinking tea is going to figure heavily into my new regimen. I started with kombucha today because I know it’s good for the digestion and full of all kinds of other goodies.
I liked this kombucha much better than the other one I tried! This one is made from green tea and has lemon in it, so it’s much lighter and sweeter. It tastes like bottled iced tea with a hint of fizz, and the vinegar-y kombucha taste only surfaces in the aftertaste.
Good for a treat, but oh man, it was bloody expensive.
Definitely good for relaxing… I feel very calm now.
Glad I didn’t give up on you, kombucha!
I received a can of Kombucha in one of my Knoshboxes and it took me a while to try it because … to be honest, I was a little afraid of Kombucha. The whole idea of Kombucha … it sounds like it’s made a lot like vinegar is made, and while I do like a splash of vinegar on my salads or on my green beans, that doesn’t mean that I’m in to drinking vinegar. Although … I have to admit that I didn’t hate the vinegar flavored tea that I tried before.
First Impression of this drink: It was weird.
Second Impression: it’s tart and lemon-y.
Third Impression: not a lot of tea flavor.
It’s not horrible, but it’s not something that I see myself wanting to drink on a regular basis either. I might pick up a bottle or can of kombucha on occasion … then again … I might not.
Ooh, I remember trying this in April! I was visiting a friend and grabbed a bottle of this to go with my deli sandwich. I really liked it. I’ve had a few bottle kombucha drinks and this one didn’t disappoint: fizzy, sweet, but with a bite to it. It feels like a “grown up” drink to me. It’s not super sweet juice or soda, or a beer (not up my alley) – just light, tasty and refreshing.
this is definitely an experience. there’s no getting around it: kombucha tastes like vinegar. period. it doesn’t “hint” at vinegar or “taste slightly” of vinegar, it’s just straight up vinegar. at first, it’s definitely a turn off, not because it tastes bad, but more because vinegar is not something we taste so concentrated. once the initial shock of vinegar is gone, it’s actually not too bad. it is very refreshing and not like anything you’ve ever tasted. the vinegar is in the aftertaste, but the first taste is very delicious. i found for me it was easier to gulp it straight down so i could still enjoy the refreshing taste while minimizing the vinegar :)
My last experience with kombucha wasn’t so hot, but I wanted to give it another chance. This one still smells like beer and tastes a bit like it too, though it’s mixed with something reminiscent of pear cider (the hard stuff). The carbonation ‘bites’ the tongue and leaves a rather sweet fruity aftertaste. I’m also not convinced that there’s no alcohol in this drink as this is a fermented tea and alcohol is a natural by-product of the fermentation process.
It’s…not bad, though I think kombucha might be an aquired taste. Still I’d drink this again.
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.
