My girlfriend and I picked up a few bottles of the Kombucha Wonder Drink at a local grocery store in Madison, WI. We really liked the idea of the naturally carbonated tea and thought it might be interesting. Well interesting it was, if by “interesting” you mean “makes your mouth pucker with disapproval”. The more I tried to drink it the more I thought to myself that I had almost certainly encountered this flavor before. Then it hit me. I had come across this distinct flavor… during easter while decorating eggs. The flavor of the Essence of Lemon is nearly identical to the flavor of White Vinegar. To test it out I even went to the cupboard and poured a cap of white vinegar and swished it around in my mouth. Yep, thats it right there.
It is possible we bought a bad batch. Perhaps self-carbonated teas turn to vinegar if left to long, I’m not sure. I can say that the bottle we drank from looked nothing like the deep yellow fluid on the internet. Our bottle had only the ever so slight hint of yellow, but was otherwise clear as water. If only it tasted more like water and less like that cup of vinegar with colored dye that you dip hardboiled eggs into with a little wire egg holder – maybe I would have given it two stars instead of just one.
I didn’t know what to expect this tea to taste like and wow!! It’s a bit sour and I wondered what to do with the rest of the case I purchased. After drinking about half the bottle I really started to like this. I think a cold bottle of Kombucha is great to sip on a hot day. I would buy this again for sure.
