A lemon flavored kombucha drink actually sounds quite appealing, although that's not what Lemon Myrtle really is. Instead, this drink is flavored with a variety of herbal extracts, including hibiscus, hyssop, chamomile, meadow sweet flower, and lemon myrtle. The lemon myrtle, which is typically known for a "lemon" flavor that's of the same style as lemongrass, seems buried in this flavor, which has a heavy bitterness. This was our least favorite flavor of the lineup. From a branding point of view, we think this drink could use a makeover, starting with the turtle that's on the front of the label. The product simply lacks appeal, especially when considering it against other kombucha products on the market. Yes, we understand that brown glass helps block light which can kill the probiotic organisms, but they could certainly do better with the label design that they've decided to use. Overall, we're not fans of the flavor on this one -- and there isn't much on the outside that we're fans of either.
