Drinking Kombucha for the Very First Time [VIDEO]
Can somebody please explain to me what all the kombucha hype is about?
Earlier today, I walked into a gas station to purchase some fuel. Staring me square in the face was a cooler full of kombucha, which is apparently a probiotic super-drink. I'm always hearing people talk about it and see it everywhere, but never really understood the trend. Seeing how I told myself I would try it the next time I ran into it, and that time was today, I had to give it a shot.
Here's how that went:
If you couldn't tell by the title of the YouTube video, the test experiment said it all. Kombucha is disgusting and although I hear nothing but the positive benefits the drink holds, I simply can not get on board with something so pungent and unsatisfying.
Carbonated vinegar was all I was tasting and even though the flavor was "pineapple peach," it wasn't enough to mask the acidic flavor.
One regret I now have is looking up what kombucha actually is and I can tell you that I'll never take another sip again. The Mayo Clinic defines the remedy as a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. It was the "bacteria and yeast" for me.
Now, I'm fond of bleu cheese, with theoretically is edible mold, so I'm not that turned off by it, but when I can't seem to escape the fragrance of the trendy tonic, you know there's a problem. Sorry, kombucha fans, it's a firm "no" from me.
