Health-Ade Kombucha Teas

{Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post brought to you by Northern California's Whole Foods Market


Years ago I was introduced to kombucha tea by a friend. It's an acquired taste that has grown on me. What is kombucha tea? Simply put, kombucha tea is a beverage produced by fermenting sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria. Sounds yummy, right?! Although it's not proven kombucha is said to have tons of health benefits.

Whole Foods Market recently started carrying Health-Ade Kombucha Teas ($4.99/16 oz.) and sent me a few flavors to test out. 

Health-Ade Kombucha offers a bubbly and delicious probiotic tea for anyone seeking ways to boost their energy and improve their health. Why choose this brand? It’s all good: organic whole ingredients, 100% raw and vegan, with great flavor. 
My thoughts.

Since I'm pregnant I decided to only have a little taster. Nick enjoyed the rest. So it's really a combo of "our" thoughts.

I personally don't drink Kombucha daily or even weekly. Typically I'll buy it when I'm feeling a little off my game, if my stomach is upset, or when I want something other than water, tea, juice etc.

Over the last few weeks we've enjoyed Health-Ade Kombucha teas either with breakfast, lunch or just an afternoon pick-me-up. The drink offers a bit of carbonation without it being too much. (side note: I'm not a soda drinker so too much carbonation gets to me.)

Health-Ade offers eight flavors. Of the three we tried Nick and I both agreed the Pink Lady Apple was our favorite. It was the perfect combo of sweet and bitter. I felt the plum was a bit too much and the original just didn't move me, but then I've never been a big fan of straight kombucha tea.

Five reasons I'll purchase Health-Ade Kombucha Teas in the future.

  1. Made using only organic and whole ingredients
  2. 100% naturally fermented
  3. Flavored with local and seasonal farmers' market fruit
  4. Made in small batches (Los Angeles) Plus, 100 % made in the USA -- down to the bottle
  5. 100% raw, vegan, natural, and gluten-free
Bottom Line.

I've tried a number of brands of kombucha tea over the years and Health-Ade is at the top of the list.

Are you a fan of kombucha tea? Do you have a favorite flavor or brand?
