Alright then, off to a great start.
I twisted off the cap and heard the distinct sound of carbonation - did I just purchase a soda by accident?? I took a sniff of the murky juice - it smelt like vinegar.
So it was bubbly vinegar. Not exactly what I was hoping for. I decided to just go for it (hey-I did a juice cleanse, I can do anything!!)
I took a sip. Initial reaction? This stuff is weiiiirdddd. Not bad. Not super delicious. Just...weird.
I continued sipping because I'm a trooper! And by the end of the bottle - I was enjoying the stuff! It's got a bit of sweetness to it, and a nice effervescence I enjoyed. Sort of like a champagne.
By the end of the bottle I was taking large gulps. It tasted healthy and I was enjoying it. Not to mention all the health benefits the bottle boasts...
On the bottle itself it informs you that the beverage aids in digestion, metabolism, immune system, appetite control, weight control, liver function, body alkalinity, anti-aging, cell integrity, and healthy skin & hair. It's also a great source of non dairy probiotics.
Kombucha comes in many flavors. I was informed by a friend of mine that I had actually chosen the worst flavor - whoops! I've got a strawberry one to try next that will hopefully make up for that.
Have you ever tried Kombucha? What are your thoughts on this strange beverage?
