Adding energy ingredients to their base kombucha shot, Karvana’s Energy + Probiotic Kombucha Shot is, unfortunately, not nearly as palatable as its counterpart. Specifically, it has a very bitter finish, which is likely from the added B vitamins and vitamin C. It also has added green tea, which is presumably for caffeine (although they don’t say how much it adds). Visually, the product’s red label feels stronger and has more “pop” than the white label that is used on the flagship flavor. That said, we suspect that this variety will pull better thanks to both the more eye catching look and the more marketable energy function. Overall, we really like the concept, but the flavor needs work.
