With the popularity of “cleanse” products, it seemed like only a matter of time until cleanse varieties of kombucha started popping up. And that’s exactly what Health-Ade’s “Cayenne Cleanse” is, blending its base kombucha with fresh pressed ginger, lime juice and cayenne pepper. The resulting product has a flavor that is unique to the brand, with a hefty note of spice that’s quickly cooled off by the added citrus and the underlying fermented flavor of the kombucha. There isn’t much in the way of sweetness to this drink (only 4g of sugar per 16 oz. bottle), but it definitely doesn’t need it as the product has plenty of flavor. Plus, the product isn’t nearly as effervescent as most kombuchas, making it something that easy to sip on. On the outside, we really like what Health-Ade has done with the 16 oz. dark amber bottle. It has a very professional and polished look, which is, sadly, something that cannot be expected from entries into the kombucha category. The brand is chic and healthy, with a slight retro feel coming from the company's choice of type treatments and label layout. Overall, this is a very enjoyable and well-executed product.
