Bay Area Kombucha


The first time I had Kombucha I took it down like a little kid takes down cherry flavored Robitussin®. I was not a huge fan, to say the least. However, while exploring the Bay Area earlier this month (with my WLIR squad), I came across a tasty Kombucha that gave you all the benefits of Kombucha, without the normal distinct, strong, vinegary taste that most Kombuchas beverages have.

The company's name is Kombucha Botanica and their product line comes in 3 tasty flavors: Pomegranate, Elderflower, & Ginger Tulsi, (my personal favorite was pomegranate).

Even if you've previously hated Komubuch with a passion, (like our WLIR Editor Dhrumil) I definitely recommend giving Kombucha Botanica's unique blend a try... you just might be surprised!

Note: Although Kombucha Botanica is still a relatively small shop, they can be found in quite a few locations around the Bay Area. Click continue reading to check out a list of their locations.
