drank Buchi Water by Buchi
1195 tasting notes

I went to a different Whole Foods for a blogger event (I was one of two people to come, sadly) and I noticed this one had a ton of different stuff compared to the one closer to me.

This is a kombucha from a company based in Asheville, so it’s a slight bit more expensive than the one I had before but ohhhh it’s better.

It’s VERY tart though, which I’m going to blame on not just it being kombucha, but because it also has apple and blackberry juices. And it has coconut water! Since all I drank earlier was Italian soda, which is far more sugar than I want, this tastes extra refreshing, even if it’s pinching the back of my throat with tartness.

I am amused that on their website they say it mixes well with vodka and rum. I feel like that ruins the purpose of drinking this, lol. I guess it’s better than Coke and maybe you get less of a hangover? I’m not finding out right now.

So it also has elderberry, schizandra berry, and watermelon juice. Pretty much all their kombuchas have to do with elements. It was between this one and Air, which I will try next time.

It is so good though, and I think I am already in love with this company after just browsing their website. I really need to get to Asheville sometime…

Thanks so much for the review of Buchi Water! It’s been flying off the shelves all across the South East, we can barely brew enough to keep it in stock! For anyone else looking for a local kombucha that’s better tasting, come find us! www.drinkbuchi.com

PS: We’ve been testing and mixing kombucha with alcohol doesn’t kill the probiotic culture, so all of the nutrients and living cultures are still viable. And you’re right, all the naturally occurring B vitamins prevent/cure hangovers and kombucha actively detoxifies your liver while you drink. Obviously drinking liquor isn’t the healthiest activity, BUT all things in moderation including moderation! If you’re going to drink, you’re way better off mixing with kombucha.

BTW we just posted a new crowdfunding video on Indiegogo that will give you a peak behind the scenes of our brewery. Check it out:

With Love,

Buchi :)

I may have to try it. If I drink liquor it’s typically just mixed with tonic water so probably can’t go wrong with kombucha. This one is definitely my favorite so far! Next time I get paid I am definitely helping to fund your project! I saw it on Facebook and I couldn’t believe you hand bottle everything, and at such speed!
