Have you ever tried it?
I got my first sip of the “magic elixir” about a month back, after seeing it on too many blogs to pass up a try. Though due to the expense, I can count the scant number of bottles I’ve afforded myself on my fingers, but I am definitely hooked on this drink!
Interestingly, the fizz didn’t put me off. As a kid and to this day, sparkling water is a beverage I detest. And in turn, no matter how many times I would valiantly try another soda, I could never find a liking for the stuff. The bubbles (shiver). But Kombucha seems to be alright! As my sister said, it’s like a healthy soda (and that girls loves soda).
So far I have only had the Synergy brand Kombucha, as it comes in a glass bottle (more eco-friendly) and looks to have the purest ingredients. I also like the packaging and bottle shape, and I use the bottle to drink lemon water out of after I finish the kombucha 😳
I want to start brewing myself! It would be great to have the stuff on hand– every time I have some aches or tummy pains the Kombucha seems to alleviate a lot of the discomfort. I have seen a couple of tutorials, both from Allie and Avery. I just to figure out how to get my hands on the big culture mushroom SCOBY thing. Hmmmm….
I’m not sure how interesting this post will be to Komucha drinkers and non-drinkers. But I should point out that this isn’t a fad, like acai berry juice or (ick) grapefruit juice. There’s no, “this will make you into superman and drop ten pounds!” logo. It’s a drink that has been brewed and drunk for hundreds (or more?) of years!
I believe one of the reasons I enjoy Kombucha is that the fizzy, unique taste can’t be chugged while standing at your car. It begs you to sit, sip, and relax. The zing sort of… wakes you up, and you realize what a beauty life is :).
Have you ever drunk Kombucha? It’s all thanks to Amanda that I even tried it in the first place!
Disclaimer: I was not given products samples or incentives to write a favorable or otherwise post from Synergy. I bought all this kombucha with my own money.
