From RISE Kombucha

Like the best sommelier, our team pairs ingredients to bring out the magic and subtlety of each, creating rich, complex flavours that are all natural and full of wonder. Finding the perfect balance of these flavours, however, is key to creating the perfect RISE brew.

The bright citrus from the fresh Valencia oranges mixed perfectly with turmeric’s spicy undertones, but it was the addition of the floral, herbal oolong tea – a first for our brews – and fresh pressed carrot juice that really brought the flavour together. The carrots also give the brew its vibrant, super-charge colour which our team loves. A few final touches of ginger and lavender and our Orange & Turmeric was transformed into a powerhouse of perfection.

unbelievably natural and organic

Went out for ice cream yesterday afterwork to Kem Coba (a fancy ice cream place here in MTL I guess?) with a coworker – which was actually an amazing experience and delicious. I got a scoop of Pandan icecream and a scoop of Salted Butter, both were amazing but there was actually something surprisingly magical about the salted butter!?

On the way home I stopped at a Depanneur for something iced/cold to drink on the way home and I noticed a bright orange kombucha in the line up of flavours of RISE Kombucha. Now, I thought that I’d tried all of the flavours RISE carries (minus the ginger, ’cause no…) so seeing something BRIGHT ORANGE threw me off. Well, I guess they put out new flavours! So, I grabbed a bottle to introduce myself – orange and turmeric, sounds lovely right!? So I had kombucha for the metro ride home.

I’m a bit thrown by this one – I think I’d need to drink it again to make my mind up. It’s got a weird ingredient list; the orange/vanilla/oolong with a hint of spice from the turmeric and ginger!? Quite a lovely mix, one that I’m really into. However, there might be just a bit too much turmeric because I was getting that bitterness that’s hard to avoid from lots of turmeric. There’s also lots of carrot in this; I’d wager that’s intended to both add orange colour visually but also for sweetness, since carrot is naturally sweet and often used in tea blends for subtle sweetness. However, when you use a lot of carrot it can taste earthy – so that and the turmeric might have been a bit much. Also there’s a floral undertone, clearly coming from the inclusion of chamomile and lavender – it’s weird and I don’t think it goes with that sweet orange/warming spice vibe. I didn’t enjoy that element.

So overall… Lots of nice qualities, really cool concept but a few interesting ingredient choices that I’m not into. Will try this again, though!
