What’s in the glass tonight September 10th – Kombucha

KH Fizz Kombucha

KH Fizz Kombucha with Ginger

A good friend from our ski club, KH, gave me some kombucha that she makes and sells from her home in Auckland. It was swappsies in return for some loose black tea I gave her from my new venture/side-hustle The Wellington Black Tea Company www.thewellingtonblackteacompany.co.nz.

Kombucha is a variety of fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drink that is commonly intended as a functional beverage for its supposed health benefits. Kombucha is produced by fermenting tea using a “symbiotic ‘colony’ of bacteria and yeast” (SCOBY). Kombucha has been promoted with claims that it can treat a wide variety of human illnesses, and people drink it for its many putative beneficial effects.

KH’s kombucha was absolutely delicious, and had a wonderful fizz to it. A sweet entry, but bone dry through the mid palate and finish. Nice ginger flavour. Yum!

This would go well with a touch of whiskey or bourbon.
