GT Kombucha: Elderberry Juniper
Updated: Feb 17
Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been around for ages. It is best known for its probiotic properties and health benefits. Kombucha is made by fermenting tea. The process of fermenting tea involves tea, sugar and a culture of the bacteria used in the fermentation process. Fermenting the tea burns off most of the sugar and leaves a bubbly, probiotic rich result. Juices can be added to create a variety of flavor experiences. The kombucha flavor being reviewed today is GT Elderberry Juniper.
GT Elderberry Juniper Kombucha is a raw kombucha made with black tea, green tea, kiwi juice, elderberry jucie, juniper berry and GT’s custom kombucha culture. All of these ingredients are organically sourced and have come together to make quite the flavor. To start things off, the color is a beautiful, rich, dark purple. Upon pouring a small glass, the kombucha exhibits a nice amount of carbonation. It is less fizzy than soda but well carbonated for kombucha. The combination of flavors comes across as rich and bold. This complimented by one of the smoothest bodies I’ve encounter among kombucha. The level of smoothness is specific to this GT flavor. I have tried other GT kombuchas, which I enjoyed, that were not as smooth as this one.
Elderberry and juniper proved to be an excellent flavor combination. If you’re the type of person who can easily get a mental picture from a sip, you’ll find yourself in the edge of a forest filled with Juniper, Cedar and Elderberry trees. Otherwise, your senses will be immersed in the rich boldness of elderberry with perfectly blended notes of juniper. This combination did not exhibit a strong sour or fermented taste. The quality of this drink would easily be considered a treat despite its benefits as a probiotic filled, healthful drink.
If you’re looking for a probiotic rich food to help with your health, in search of a healthy treat or just looking to try something new, this kombucha might fit the bill. The smooth and rich flavor combination could surprise you. It could also make health and living even more fun!
Inspiring message on the bottle!
