Despite this huge variety at the heart of all these products is a unique base flavour that is tart, sweet, refreshing, tea-like and complex.
Kombucha is known for its tartness, which is a result of the fermentation process and gives it an exciting tangy flavour. This can differ in impact based on the length of the fermentation process and it is one of the most appealing aspects of Kombucha over other fizzy drinks.
A delicate sweetness is retained in the Kombucha derived from the sugar that is added during the brewing process. The level of residual sweetness can vary, depending on the recipe and the length of fermentation and It can be enhanced by the lighter, berry, floral and herbal, orchard and tropical flavour profiles that are available on our online store.
In production and during the fermentation process, carbon dioxide is produced, giving Kombucha a light, effervescent quality. The fizziness adds a refreshing element to the overall taste experience. In our ‘How to Kombucha’ blog our experts share tips to have the best possible Kombucha experience and encourage you to Chill it as Kombucha is best served cold to calm the bubbles and allow you to savour the sweet and sour combo at its refreshing best.
Kombucha is typically brewed with black or green tea as the base ingredient which gives it a subtle earthy and tea-like flavour. Black teas or more oxidised teas have a stronger flavour which will carry through more into the final product.
Teas like English breakfast and Ceylon Tea are great. Green teas or Oolongs have a more subtle flavour but are rich in powerful antioxidants and work great to make a powerful brew. These tea characteristics can provide a subtle base to your chosen Kombucha flavour of choice.
In summary, Kombucha's flavour profile is complex and variable and grouped with the potential for so many innovative flavour variations, it is one of the most intriguing aspects of the drink and is the key to its enduring appeal.
