The elixir of life!

Has anyone ever tried Kombucha? It's becoming quite popular as I am seeing it everywhere. As mentioned in my tea dictionary, Kombucha is a fermented, effervescent, and sweetened black tea or green tea beverage with the capability to detox your body. Its touted for its health benefits, though, studies continue to verify some of its claims.  I am going to post another article about this wonder drink in the future, but for now, I am just going to share my experience with this beverage, for I have just had it for the very first time.

Since it was my first time consuming this drink, I really didn't know what to look for in terms of flavours or brands.  I happened to come across a brand called Kombucha Wonder Drink and decided to give them a shot as all the ingredients were organic.  Plus, the product I found was a Traditional Kombucha.

The wonder potion!

Upon opening the bottle, a wave of fruity aroma was released. It smelled like apple juice with hints of strawberry.  Though, from what's written on the label, there are no fruits or berries in this drink.  Even the taste was similar to apple juice, only carbonated.  It had a slight tang which I liked.  I also found it quenched my thirst, but I tend to find most carbonated drinks have this capability.  I didn't really detect any tea, but again, that could be due to the carbonated nature of the drink.

Overall, I enjoyed the drink.  I don't know if it made me any healthier as I feel the same.  This beverage was not cheap, so I likely won't have it on a regular basis.  I found most of the Kombucha drinks on the market to be rather dear.  However, it's not bad to have once in a while especially for its purported health benefits.
