I received samples of Kevita Master Brew Kombucha for review purposes and was not financially compensated for this post. All opinions are my own and based on my experience.
Kombucha. The drink with a peculiar name and an equally peculiar taste. I first heard of this beverage last spring, citing that it seemed like the latest fad of The Healthy Food Train. Now, almost a year later, it’s still here! And…I’ve hopped on the kombucha train, you guys.
Water is my go-to beverage throughout the week. I like juices but they’re not always the most convenient thing for me to make. And personally, I’d rather eat my food than drink it (a big “yes” to smoothies, though!). Trying Kevita Master Brew Kombucha left me second-guessing my “water only” thoughts!
What’s in it?
Kombucha is a fermented drink typically made with water/tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. It can have possible benefits of boosting immune system and improving digestion/liver function. The taste is interesting and I’ve grown to like it – it’s slightly sweet, tangy, and the Master Brew Kombucha was carbonated.
The bottle of pineapple peach Master Brew was calling my name, and it was a great addition to my breakfast. I could taste the natural pineapple and peach flavors, and it wasn’t too sweet at all! Overpowering sweetness is a big turn-off to me when it comes to drinks (not ice cream), so this was a big plus.
What a pleasant surprise it was to take a few sips the Master Brew – wondering how many calories and teaspoons of sugar I’m about to consume – and find that the entire bottle contained 40 calories and 8 grams of sugar. For reference, a 12 fluid-ounce can of regular soda can have about 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar.
Kevita Master Brew Kombucha will definitely become a part of my week! It’s somewhat comforting to know that I’m not putting anything “bad” in my system with this beverage: Master Brew Kombucha is certified organic, non-GMO, low-calorie, and contains no added sugar. If you have dietary restrictions, it’s also good to know that the drink is vegan, dairy-free, lactose-free, and gluten-free.

Cheers to kombucha and this awkward morning selfie.
