Dr. Chao’s Almond flavored Kombucha is a blend of raw kombucha culture, black tea, sugar, and almond extract. Like their coconut flavored offering, this product suffers from having too much flavoring (in this case almond) and not enough kombucha flavor. In addition, it tastes very sweet, despite the label again stating that the drink contains 30 calories and 2g of sugar (we were expecting something much lighter). Again, the packaging design catches the eye from afar, but, upon closer examination, has too much text and fails to develop its brand (is it Dr. Chao?). Overall, there might be something worthwhile here, but the almond flavor needs to be dialed down and the brand needs some further thought.
