True Buch, a local kombucha company in Calgary gave me a growler of their ‘Very Berry’ kombucha to try for you guys!
I’m sure you’re all wondering, what is kombucha? Well, it’s a fermented drink made out of tea, bacteria, sugar, and yeast. I’ve heard a bit about probiotics but I’m not 100% sure how effective it is so I’ll let you guys do your own research on that!
Those of you that know me know that I’m slightly obsessed with kombucha 😉
The obsession is so “subtle” that I line up kombucha bottles ontop of my cupboards as decor…
Anyways, I digress.
I (and my family) very much enjoyed the kombucha. So much so that we finished 1/3 of the bottle by the end of the photoshoot.🙃 I usually drink kombucha as a replacement for soda because it still gives me that fizzy feeling with just a hint of sweetness (without all of the sugar and additives).
I must warn you though, kombucha isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It has a smell to it that some people can’t tolerate (it’s fermented! What else would you expect?) and others just simply don’t like the taste. It’s also a little pricey, the cheapest bottle of kombucha I’ve found was around $4. It makes sense though since a lot goes into making it!
This growler had a bit of a stronger taste, which I liked because I was often satisfied with just one glass! Overall, I would give this flavor an 8/10! They have other flavors too like mint mojito, ginger, and blueberry (which is my favorite!)
Did you know, that for every bottle of kombucha you buy from True Buch some money is given to support local initiatives? A few examples include Mealshare, Pet Access Leagues Society (PALS), and Leftovers Calgary! I think that’s pretty cool! And it makes me feel a little better sipping on my expensive bottle of kombucha knowing that the money is being used for something good!
I hope you guys go try out a bottle for yourself and tell me what you think. Pick one up at True Buch and tell them I sent you! 🙂
