My first take of kombucha, or at least the bottled one… but I really think I haven’t got any before.
I saw the bottles, and I knew right away I need to bring some home to try it. I wasn’t paying much attention to the ingredients, just picked original flavour and raspberry one. The last one was ginger/lemon which I wasn’t looking forward as it’s quite hot today and I prefer refreshing flavours.
When I arrived home with those two bottles (0.4 L each) I put them in fridge to cool them down a bit. They weren’t in fridges in the store!
When I have opened the bottle not so long ago, a strong vinegar aroma popped out. I spilled it to my favourite glass cup and I got nice golden fizzy drink. I started to read the ingredients, where among tea stuff were bacteria listed and cane sugar. And sadly, stevia! However, I took a sip, because I never spill the tea based on the ingredients only and I have to say it is quite pleasant. Sweet? Yes, quite a lot. Floral somehow. Stevia isn’t noticeable in taste. And in the end there is some flavour which I know, but can’t put my finger on. Something that reminds me Villa drink from Norway?
