Kombucha- Totally Bizarre but Awesome

Last month I finally gave unto my curiosity and bought a Trilogy (ginger, raspberry and lemon) Kombucha tea at Whole Foods. When I first opened the bottle, it fizzed everywhere (as the cashier warned me)! After that, some of the slimy goops of the bacteria that causes the fermentation floated to the top so, bracing myself, I slurped them up. It was so cool, they just melted in my mouth! The drink itself tasted strongly of ginger, probably more so than I would have liked, so it definitely resembled a slightly vinegar-y ginger ale. My mom tried some and said it tastes like wine, which I know nothing of, so maybe it does. Either way, I have been wanting to try so many more flavors of Kombucha tea, but I'm so stingy that I have a hard time paying $3.50 for one- sad, I know.

Anyways, fast forward to today when I see this giveaway on the Confessions of a Sham blog- perfect! If you are at all curious about Kombucha tea, go ahead and enter to give it a try- you won't be disappointed.

You know your next step will be to brew your own, don't you? That's what the rest of us do when we don't want to spend the $$ on commercial kombucha. Check YouTube.com for instructions on how to brew your own if you don't have a "mother" culture. Welcome to the Kombucha addicted!

It totally tastes like wine, I swear the first time I tried it, I got a little buzz. My mom was laughing at me ;)

You should try the grape & strawberry flavors. Those two taste the best. Especially grape. Then you can work your way up to the weirder flavors :)
