I have brewed our own kombucha before, but this takes it to an entirely new level of YUM! I Love the lively fizz (no carbonation added... all natural!) and the flavor profiles have been terrific.
So far we have tried: Amazing Blues, Berry Passion, Live Red and Raspberry Pomegranate. Our oldest son loves the Live Red and Amazing Blues while our daughter enjoys the Raspberry Pomegranate with a close second and tie between Amazing Blues and Berry Passion. While I prefer the sweeter nature of the Berry Passion... (while I love lemon, I'm not a fan of lime). Bob and the little boys love them all!
This week we have some new varieties to try out as they were out of my favorite, Berry Passion, I'm guessing it is the favorite of a lot of people.
I was able to attain a product list with ingredients this week. Yeah! I have detailed that below so you can see before selecting what the various flavor profiles are.
The Kombucha (Bucha) is packaged in 16.9 oz glass bottles for $4.25 each.
For next week we have these flavor profiles available:
- Green Apple Ginger
- Raspberry Pomegranate
- Sunshine (aka Tribal Sunshine)
- Smashing Berries (Yerbucha)
Collaborations (working with Vim Vigor and Tribal Juices)
Yerbucha (Yerba Mate Kombucha)

The photo above is of my kombucha brewing on my counter. I like to use Organic Green Tea (Organic Black Tea may also be used), Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice Crystals and Clean Fresh Water (can not be chlorinated or have impurities such as added fluoride). The Kombucha Culture will turn black and die if a non-organic tea or Fluoridated/Chlorinated water is used. I am not currently brewing my own Kombucha. So, I do not have a culture available.
