Recent Tasting Notes
Just the thing after an afternoon of overindulging at a holiday party!
Sweeter, less sour, and generally more “accessible” than the other Buchi blends, I think. Strong clove scent and apple flavor upfront. Then the sour pucker of the fermentedness. Smoother on the finish, with lingering hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
I figured if beer tastes better when it’s on draft, the same has to apply to kombucha!
I figured I’d like this one better than fire, which is gingery. This is verrrrry minty. I’m not a fan of echinacea because it makes my stomach hurt, but that’s not going to really stop me. Beyond mint, it just has an herbal taste. On their website they say there’s pineapple too but I can’t taste it. Oh well.
I prefer the Water flavor but that is not available on draft at my Whole Foods :(
This isn’t bad though. I just think the pricing is weird. 16 oz is $5, but 24 oz is $6 (and that’s probably WF and not Buchi’s deal). And it is like, extra fizzy compared to those in the bottle. I couldn’t stop drinking it in the car because it was reminding me of my favorite kinds of beer, but sweeter and I can drink this and drive. Obviously.
The worst thing happened last week. The tap for this flavor was busted and then to really make it annoying, they left it like it was normal. So last Friday I think it was, I stood there waiting for this girl to stop messing with coffee beans and pour me a cup and it’s, oh it’s broken.
So I finally got some this Saturday, in a 32 oz growler!!! Just what I need. So really that’s been the only tea I’ve been drinking because I can’t be bothered right now. This paper is ruining my life and I still have 3 pages to write.
This is still the best tasting one to me. I just like that it is fruity and kind of minty, and just the right amount of tart. It kind of catches my taste buds sometimes and tastes a little too tart but that’s okay.
Sooo this is on tap at Whole Foods now, AND WF made the pricing make sense finally. $3 for 16 oz, $4.50 for 24 oz, $11 for a 64 oz growler fill. I wonder if I can take in one of my beer specific growlers for that…I have like 3 or 4 I’ve accumulated for free.
This one is just the best. I could drink it forever. I just love how sweet and slightly herby it is. And now that The price makes far more sense I am probably going to get a cup every time I come in here.
We decided we’d try a new-to-us place for lunch today, and got fajitas there. I did not realize until I was nearly done eating that some of my chicken was massively undercooked. They comped it and apologized profusely but my stomach really, really hurts. So if this doesn’t take care of it, I’m going to cry because we have my favorite “champagne” for tonight and I got the awesome avocado kale salad Whole Foods has and I WANT TO EAT IT.
Well if there was any further sign that I should try eating mostly ovo-vegetarian like I was thinking about in the new year, being served undercooked chicken did it for me. BLEH.
This one will always and forever be my favorite flavor. I considered getting the new earth one but when watermelon and blueberry are involved I really can’t change.
I wish they had this one on tap at my Whole Foods but then I’d probably drink the entire growler in a day.
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…
