What Are Some Kombucha Tea Flavors?

While the basis of kombucha is water, tea, sugar, and kombucha cultures, this fermented drink has practically limitless options when it comes to flavoring. From sweet to sour to herbal and citrus, and everything in between, kombucha lends itself well to many unique flavor combinations. So what are some common flavor types you may care to try?

Fruit-Based Kombucha

Many kombucha drinks use natural fruit flavoring to offset some of the acidity or bitterness that occur with fermentation. From the classic pink lady apple, grape, cherry, or pomegranate juices, to the more adventurous tropical punch and passion fruit-tangerine, you can find varying levels of sweetness or tartness depending on your taste preference. Fruits can be mixed and matched too like kiwi-cucumber or apple cherry.

Herb-Based Kombucha

Some kombuchas are infused with fresh herbs to develop different flavor palates. Some popular options include mint, chamomile, lavender, ginger, cloves, or rose.. Naturally, some herbs have a more robust flavor while others are much milder and lighter. When making your own, remember to keep in mind that less is usually more.

Combination Kombucha

You can also mix fruits and herbs together for a delightful change up. Strawberry basil, blueberry ginger, apple cinnamon, or lemon rosehip can all make for tasty combinations. Get creative and mix-and-match flavors that appeal to you or that you think would go well together. Remember that there’s no real right or wrong way to flavor, if it tastes good to you, that’s all that matters!

What Else Impacts the Flavor of Kombucha?

In addition to adding various juices, herbs, and spices to kombucha tea, the actual production process can impact the flavor as well. For instance, kombucha can be made from a single type of tea, or from a blend of multiple teas. Green, black, white, oolong, rooibos, and other herbal teas are all common options. Depending on which tea or combination of teas is used, it can impact the taste. Health-Ade Kombucha always uses green and black tea.

Selecting a Kombucha Drink

Consider what foods you prefer the taste of and follow your gut. Keep an open mind and be willing to try different flavor combinations as well; you never know when you might discover a new favorite! If you’re making your own kombucha, experiment with different cold-pressed fruit juices, spices, and herbs to find a blend and balance that appeals to your palate. Don’t forget that you can also use kombucha in various recipes and unlock a whole new set of flavors!

Health-Ade uses certified organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan ingredients in its kombucha. This means you can have confidence knowing you’re drinking the best tasting and highest quality kombucha you can buy. Experiment and have some fun trying all of our unique flavor offerings!
