Review: The smell is so yummy! Minty, lemony and flowery, but also really peppery. Even the celery comes through. It’s strangely salad-like!
Tasting it…well, the inclusion of lemongrass made us nervous, but this one actually tastes of lemon, not like fake sweets, which was a pleasant surprise! It’s also slightly floral, but without tasting like soap the way many rosehip blends do. The peppermint is refreshing, and you get a nice kick from the black pepper.
If you don’t know, kombucha is a blend of fermented tea, sugar and yeast (full of healthy bacteria for the gut). It’s also high in folic acid and vitamin-K, both vital in pregnancy, but with about a third of the caffeine contained in straight tea. Plus, the inclusion of ginseng is bound to give you an early-morning pick-me-up. An excellent alternative to black / green / white teas.
