I don’t honestly know whether the hype about kombucha is true. I’ve heard astounding claims made about its efficacy, and claims made that it does nothing. Either way, this tea tastes pretty good. The green is mostly a backdrop, and what I taste is a mild papaya. This makes a great after dinner tea as it cleanses the palette and purportedly helps with digestion. Fruit teas are very hit or miss with me, so I wasn’t sure whether I was getting myself in trouble buying it. I definitely don’t taste the spearmint, and wouldn’t have identified lemongrass a component on my own either- it really tastes more like fruit to me.
