So here's my take on kombucha. After reading about some good reviews of kombucha, I decided to try it. It's a fermented, fizzy, tea-like drink made with bacteria. The first time I tried it was several months ago. I had GT's raw kombucha drink, the multi-green variety. I tried it, and likened it to bitter tasting beer without the alcohol. Not very pleasant, but the bottle says it has many health benefits, like improving digestion or immunity.
But recently, I found an article on msnbc that explains there have been no tests to prove the benefits of drinking kombucha. Also it says it can make people sick with weak immune systems or if you drink it too often.
I decided to try it again, this time going with a different brand and a different flavor. It was High Country's organic live kombucha in goji berry flavor. Unfortunately, the taste was about the same as the first one. I strained to try to find the berry flavor, but didn't find any. And at over $3 a bottle, I don't think I'll be buying any more kombucha.
Once the painters are done painting our kitchen, I think I'll bake something!
