Kombucha beverages are dynamic due to not only their specific taste profile, but also their unique preparation. These drinks are made with a help of natural fermentation and the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY), which serves as the living home of the bacteria and yeast that transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha.
Carpe Diem Kombucha is packed into plastic 500 mL bottles with simple labels. Immediately upon opening the bottle, you can smell the strange, sour aroma that’s nothing like a typical iced tea. The drink’s purple colour reveals slight sedimentation at the bottom of the bottle.
Tasting the beverage reveals a slight fizziness from the fermentation process and a sourness reminiscent of vinegar. With all natural colorants from acerola concentrate, the drink is sweetened with sugar, has only 19 kcal per 100 mL, and is certified vegan Not overly sweet, but refreshing, the drink presents a specific sourness that complicates the taste of the herbs and tea. It’s not fermented iced tea; it’s kombucha, with a whole new taste profile.
