From Yogi Tea

Our Green Tea Kombucha was inspired by a remedy that dates back to ancient Russia. Updated for today’s lifestyle, Yogi’s special formula of kombucha with organic green tea is designed to support your immune system, fight fatigue and detoxify your body. Spearmint naturally aids digestion, and plum and lemongrass combine to create a fragrant tea with a light, fruity flavor.* Once the steeping process has released the benefits of these ingredients, you are ready to enjoy a delicious, delightful and soothing cup of tea—one that is naturally rich in antioxidants and other health boosters.

Ingredients: organic green tea leaf, organic lemongrass, organic spearmint leaf, natural passion fruit flavor, natural plum flavor, organic kombucha

bring water just to boiling and steep 3 minutes

“aids immune and digestive function”
Warning: Do not use during pregnancy or while nursing.

My 1st Kombucha! I really need to start w/ unflavored versions of teas…

Prepared as suggested.

As soon as I put the bag in, it smells like lemon jello… and at the end of steeping that scent remains, only the aroma of peppermint is added. The flavors are much more mellow than I expected (mellow, not weak). The peppermint is slightly more pronounced than the lemon, but it blends well… and there’s definitely still the jello-esk component! Kombucha no longer scares me and I can’t wait to try an unflavored loose version!

How is this bagged tea? Kombucha is fermented and has mold floating in it that you drink with the tea. It’s yummier than it sounds, but this bagged version I don’t understand.

Cofftea

Based on my rating of 96, it’s pretty freakin amazing:)

AmazonV

my best bet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombucha Additionally, some tea makers offer a dried version of kombucha, mixed with the tea leaves, that dissolves in hot water.9

Peggie Bennett

I still don’t think it could be nearly the same thing as real kombucha. It’s the fungus that makes it what it is, and I don’t think the live cultures would dissolve in hot water and still be beneficial.
There are good bottled kombucha teas in the health food section of the market. Synergy is my favorite. I can’t drink a lot of it because I don’t like bubbles that much, and even that tiny half percent of ethyl alcohol from fermentation makes my allergy kick in. I’m lame like that. :-|

I…don’t understand how one puts kombucha into a tea bag. I am pretty sure that’s some kind of ploy to get you to buy this one for medicinal benefits. Like similarly I’m not trusting anyone who claims to have yogurt probiotics in a tea bag either or something.

So no, this doesn’t taste like kombucha, and I doubt whatever is in here to pretend to be kombucha has any semblance of drinking actual kombucha because the whole point of kombucha is to have the live stuff in there. I highly doubt that stuff survives being turned into a powder or whatever’s going on in teas like this.

For what it actually is, it’s not too bad, but I think it tastes terrible hot. When I let it cool off, the plum and passionfruit flavors were stronger. Before it was just the lemongrass and mint with a little fruity aftertaste.

I wouldn’t drink this again.

Even if they did dehydrate the Kombucha & bag it (which I suppose is possible), the heat of the hot water would kill any actual live cultures (if they survived being dehydrated to begin with). :)

Tamm

That’s a great point Terri! I know lots of people who make miso with boiling water and I always try to pass on it because I’ve read that temps. that high will kill the “good” stuff in it.

Terri HarpLady

Right! It’s the same with kraut. If your kraut actually has live cultures (I make my own), as soon as you heat it up, that’s gone.

went with this one instead of the echinacea, because it steeps quicker and tastes better.

What does this taste like? I’ve heard of kombucha (the fermented tea) but have never tried it. I’m curious if this bagged tea tastes like “the real thing”? How would they put that in a bag? :)

Janefan

I’ve never had “real” kombucha, so I can’t say how it compares. I imagine there is very little resemblance…

200th tasting note! Wow.

A mug of this stuff, steeped at exactly 170 degrees F for three to four minutes, and stuffing copious amounts of processed junk food into my mouth is how I’m choosing to deal with that excruciating phone interview I just had.

Being a college senior looking for a job sucks. Especially if you happen to be painfully shy and not good at interviewing. Stammered, repeated myself, and rambled.

Ughhhhhh.

Well, this blend is good, as always. Yogi herbal blends are hit or miss, but their green tea blends are always right on. Yay for minty, fruity, sweetness!

Oh gosh, I’m sorry you’re so anxious about this. Looks like pretty much my entire dash (myself included) is experiencing job-related stress. I just hate it so much. I hope things look up soon for all of us.

teaqueen

Me too… Peace, love, and tons of tea. I’ll send happy thoughts your way :)

And back at you!

I bough this tea more out of curiosity than anything else. I have tried bottled kombucha in the past with….not so great results. But as this is mixed with green tea I hoped it would go down better.

The smell is very fruity, like plums or papayas, but there flavour is more minty green tea with a hint of fruit and something tangy which I think is supposed to be the kombucha. It’s not half bad for a bagged green tea, although I was expecting a little bit more kombucha than there actually was.

Got this in a swap from KallieBoo! I mostly grabbed this because I’m coming down with a cold and the package conveniently says that it supports immune function. I figured what the heck, it can’t hurt. I didn’t expect to like it considering I didn’t even know what Kombucha meant. The smell when steeped is like lemon mixed with medicinal herbs. Suprisingly good when mixed with a little sugar. Not something that I would necessarily drink for fun, but not at all bad when a cold is brewing. I would definitely add it to my collection.

Claire gave me this tea! It has a very appetizing fruity scent and a warm, delicate, mellow flavor. It’s like a passing passionfruit farted into the cup—you don’t taste so much as smell it. Oversteeping made it a little harsh for me, but still quite drinkable.

Bonnie

Funny!

One day I might have class and culture, but today is not that day. :)

This is MUCH better than the other Yogi Green tea I had the other day. I was intrigued by the Kombucha since originally I thought you could only get it in bottled form. The package said to steep the bag for 3 minutes, but I forgot about it and steeped it for longer. Not too bad and not as bitter as I thought it would be. The green tea is a little more prominent here, as is the lemongrass and a little bit of the mint.

My original experience with Kombucha was the bottled stuff that tastes a LOT like vinegar and was pretty bad to drink. Thankfully, this is a lot better.

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!

My mycology professor gave me a bag of this. I had to get over the kombucha part before deciding to try it, but it’s actually a very pleasant tea. A bit hard to describe the taste, though. The lemongrass was tangible for the 1st infusion, but the taste diluted out for the 2nd and 3rd. It would be good for a day full of statistics programs and thesis writing.
