When drunk straight from the bottle, an original kombucha tastes similar to fizzy apple cider vinegar. The characteristic sourness will vary depending on how long it has been fermented, but what you add during the fermentation process is the key to elevating your kombucha to a tasty sparkling drink.
How do you flavour the kombucha drink?
A kombucha SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) needs sugar and tea to grow and thrive.
You can add fruits or fruit juice during the second fermentation to give your kombucha more flavour!
