THE CHILL-OUTVERBENA & SKULLCAP

A kombucha that combines refinement and a touch of bitterness

This kombucha, of golden veil color which leans over copper, is the most complex of the four. On the first nose there is a bouquet of spices and flowers. Then, quietly, the aromas are revealed: orange peel, clove, nutmeg, white and black teas, wood bark, potpourris, dried roses and mint. In the mouth, there is a small presence of fine bubbles, and a pronounced tannin which dries out the mouth. It all ends with a touch of bitterness and spicy flavors. An excellent companion for Indian dishes!

Ingredients: Filtered water, Kombucha * live bacterial culture and yeast, cane sugar * and fermented black tea *, Verbena, Skullcap * and nothing else.

Sipdown (729)!

There’s a few different kombucha companies carried by Lufa, which is the weekly food delivery box that I do, and I’ve worked my way through their offerings now – but this past week they added a new one so I just picked up all four flavours of kombucha in their collection and added them to my weekly box.

I haven’t had much time to try them out in between my advents teas each day, but I had this one last night. I’m not entirely sure what skullcap is supposed to taste like but I know it’s apparently good for insomnia/helping people fall asleep so I figured this would be a good late night option. Admittedly, not a half hour after I started drinking this tea I was finding it IMPOSSIBLE to keep my eyes open. So, I think it works!?

Taste wise it was also really enjoyable – definitely channeling a bit of a sweeter cider vibe, but with an undertone of lemon/citrus and a nice gingery finish. So, kind of reminded me of a lighter and more nuanced hard cider. Complete with delightful fermentation fizz. If it weren’t for the fact it apparently make me SUPER tired, I think I could probably drink this on the regular – it was really smooth/easy drinking!

If I had to guess.. skullcap sounds like poison?
