Recent Tasting Notes

Picked this up in a Lufa box a week or so ago; it’s this company’s limited edition “Summer Kombucha” flavour and I couldn’t actually think of a time that I’ve ever had a watermelon kombucha so I was instantly sold on curiosity alone…

I drank this one at the park with a small sort of “picnic” (ie. Zeppole and pears) as a small meal before going swimming – a celebratory meal, if you will, because I was just recently cleared to go swimming again after needing to take a few weeks off from it following rupturing my eardrum! It was very exciting being able to go back, for sure!

The kombucha itself was really good; definitely a lot more distinctly watermelon tasting than rhubarb – with a lot of the sweet and refreshing qualities of biting into a slice of really juicy, ripe melon. It has a bit of the tangyness and acidity of rhubarb though, as well as just the kombucha itself. The two flavours work quite well together, actually!

I don’t know that this is my favourite flavour of kombucha that I’ve tried from this company but I think it’s nice and well done and it 100% makes sense as a summer flavour!

I’m not totally sure how I feel about “spicy” kombucha…

I’ve had a handful of kombucha with ginger or turmeric, but usually it’s not my thing at all. Something compelled me to try this one, though – not really sure why. Usually, when a company offers a ginger/turmeric/spiced kombucha I just skip over it and don’t try it. This was weird; it’s got some ginger notes that pop out and some turmeric heat/warmth. It also tastes very woody/clearly of rooibos. However, I just don’t enjoy that flavour combo with the acidity/vinegar-y taste of kombucha or the combination.

I like other fizzy drinks with “spices” (ginger ale/beer, cola, etc.) – but I guess just not these ones…

I am glad I tried it, though.

Turmeric, rooibos, and kombucha? Ick. Definitely not my cup of tea!

This kombucha company put out a really interesting exclusive summer flavour so I picked that up in my weekly Lufa box – which is like a food delivery box, with mostly produce type stuff but some other local products and stuff too. I’ll review that some other time, for sure – I haven’t tried it yet. They included this one in my weekly box for free though, which was very generous of them. I drank it today with lunch, and since I’ve tried it before I didn’t pay a TON of attention to it – just enjoyed the sort of tangy “sparkling mango” type vibe…

Got this in my Lufa Box last week (a weekly grocery delivery box) and it was actually pretty good! Definitely a mango flavour, and quite intensely fizzy with the strong vinegar/tangy kick I’ve been craving from a kombucha for a while now.
