drank Original Oak by Marin Kombucha

Oof, no.

Both grossly sweet and kind of flat, like it didn’t ferment well. Tastes like sweet alcohol with a floral and alkaline feel, not the vinegary-acetic acid taste of a strongly fermented kombucha. A touch of oak and a yeasty aftertaste. I wonder how their other kombucha fair, if they all have the same general quality.

Flavors: Alcohol, Floral, Oak, Sweet, Yeast

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng pu’er, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? While I may not mention those effects in tea notes, it is what I value most. Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
