Picked this up from a Depp on my way home from work – I hadn’t seen this flavour from Y Kombucha available for sale before, and I got excited about the idea of a blueberry kombucha! This company has been so hit or miss though so I wanted to keep my expectations low…
Unfortunately, when I opened the bottle it exploded and more than half the bottle ended exploding all over myself. Thankfully I opened it after getting off the metro while I was walking home, and not on the metro because that would have been VERY messy.
I’m bummed that I lost half the bottle though because I liked this one a lot! It starts off tangy/tart and very “kombucha forward” but then gets nice and sweet and jammy, like a blueberry pie filling, almost!? It’s a really lovely blueberry flavour though and I really like that I get both the tang I want from a kombucha and a nice sweetness. I’d definitely drink this one again.
Found another flavour offering from Y Kombucha at a local convenience store today on my way to work, and since I hadn’t packed a lunch I thought it was a good opportunity to grab it to add to the rest of what I was nabbing from the convenience store…
This might be my favourite flavour yet – it’s bright and fresh, with juicy mango notes that hit kind of high and lively on the palate. However, despite the sweet and juicy mango notes it has a lightness to it that I didn’t experience with the raspberry. It reminds me a touch of the hops flavour; they have a comparable citrus note to them as well.
I liked this a lot – it was easy to drink, and I felt like the flavour was distinct and well balanced while also still having some of the vinegar-y quality that I want in a kombucha.
Saw this “out in the wild” while I was shopping and, since I liked the Hops flavour I tried at the tea festival so much, I decided to pick it up and give it a try. However, this whole bottle was filled with so much nope – definitely A LOT nastier than what I sampled at the festival. For starters, I know sediment/some “floaties” are normal in kombucha because of the scoby used to make them but this was straight up chunky. Really, really vile experience texturally as I was drinking, but then to top it up it was just so yeast-y tasting with more of a general tart taste than raspberry.
Montreal Tea Festival – Tea #20
Last kombucha left to write about from the event! This was a new to me kombucha company, and they seemed to have been sampling their whole flavour assortment but we only tried this flavour because it seemed like the most unique/interesting. It was pretty good; I’d have liked to try and whole bottle and assess my thoughts after an extended taste of it, but as it stands I only got a swallow or so. That swallow was nice though; light(ish) flavour with a surprisingly sweet and fruity note – reminded me a bit of taking a Melon Drop shot? So, melon/orange I guess!?
