Kombucha Wonder Drink “Traditional” is a pasteurized kombucha product that comes packaged in an 8 oz. can. It’s rather sweet tasting, despite having only 60 calories, but it still manages to have a very authentic kombucha flavor. There’s a tea note to the base, followed by the distinct flavor of fermented tea, which is rounded out nicely by the product’s natural carbonation. Unlike some of the other products out there (or homebrewed versions) this product uses pasteurization to make it shelf stable and kill off the alcohol that is produced during fermentation. According to the manufacturer, the benefits of kombucha (assuming you believe that there are some) come in the form of acids that are created during fermentation and these acids are not affected by pasteurizing the product. Ultimately, we like the drink’s flavor – it’s a nice, sophisticated alternative to still tea. On the outside, they’ve done a nice job of presenting something that’s artisanal looking and appealing to the eye. It's chic, but feels credible, and we like the packaging differentiation by using a can. Overall, a very enjoyable product.
