Made with a blend of 95 percent kombucha and 5 percent fruit juice, Kombucha Botanica is one of the most mellow tasting kombuchas that we’ve come across. The key reason for this is its lower lactic acid content, which is something that typically gives kombucha its sour flavor (there seem to be divided camps on whether this adds functional benefit). Either way, this product contains live probiotic content, which is why it must be kept refrigerated. The pineapple ginger variety is quite easy to drink, with a mild fermented tea flavor and a subtle splash of pineapple and sweetness. All in all, it’s a very easy and enjoyable product to drink. Packaging is a 12 oz. amber glass bottle, which looks like a craft soda product more than a kombucha. Nevertheless, the label is clean and wholesome looking, with an easily identifiable color scheme to differentiate the flavors. Typically, we recommend that fruit flavored beverages use images of fruit to help appeal to the senses, but in the case of this product (where the fruit flavor is very subtle), we don’t think that this would make sense. Overall, a very nice tasting product that’s a good starting point for those who are not yet familiar with kombucha.
