Kevita Master Brew Kombucha – Review

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.

Verdict

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.

    I still have yet to try Kombucha! I need to try it out and see how I like it, I really like the low sugar content in that brand!

    I haven’t tried it yet, but anything that can improve your immunity sounds very appealing to me!

      For sure! It took me a little bit of time to get used to (like, a few sips) but it’s a nice bubbly drink!

    Hi Jess, I LOVE Kombucha! what an awesome product. I have never tried this one in particular but some others. I feel like I’m drinking a soda but I’m not 🙂

      That’s awesome that you drink it too! Yes, it had a soda feel to it, but with WAY less calories and sugar.

    I love Kombucha. I’ve been wanting to make my own buy the whole SCOBY thing is daunting. For now, I’ll settle for the pre-bottled version 🙂

      Isn’t it delish?? Yes, I was reading up on how to make it at home and that part freaked me out, haha. I’m with ya on the pre-bottled version.

    I love Kombucha, I usually buy it at WF – they sell it on tap. I’m definitely going to check that brand, sounds pretty legit (especially the tart cherry flavor!)

      Oh, I need to go to WF for more kombucha! Kroger has been selling a few varieties, but I’m sure there’s a bigger selection at WF. Thanks, Mike!!

    I haven’t tried Kombucha and I’m a bit scared to! But the flavors that this brand has are much more appealing then the ones that I have seen in the grocery stores. Did you try any flavors other than the Pineapple Peach?

      Haha it took me a few sips to get used to, but I like the taste now! I did not – unfortunately, I left all the other bottles at my dad’s house in Alexandria so they’re a two-hour drive away (we don’t have a Safeway in Cville so had to get them up there).

    I adore kombucha. I was a GT fan for years, but then I got skunked on like THREE bottles in a row of the ginger flavor. It was totally flat. I’ve had a few other brands since, but I need to try this one. Maybe one day I’ll actually make my own!

      Aw man, that sucks! I haven’t considered making my own, but I bet it’d be a fun experiment 🙂

    uhm, I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY KOMBUCHA but was so unsure, it seems great, healthy, not a lot of bad ingredients, but I get nervous with extra caffeine and probiotics in my diet (due to my severe IBS)

      Hm, I’m not sure how it would affect your IBS – might be a good question for your doc 🙂 thanks for stopping by!!

    I’ve never tried it but I’ve heard so much about it would really love to test it out. Sweetness is a put-off to me too, so this stuff actually sounds pretty good!

      Salt! You should def try a bottle! It took me a few sips to get used to the flavor, but now I’m hooked. ESPECIALLY because it’s not too sweet.

    I have yet to try it, but Pineapple Peach sounds amazingggg. I’ve been entertaining the idea of homebrewing it since I think in the long run, it’d come out to be a lot less expensive (and how cool would it be to be able to say I made it on my own!?). I mostly just drink water and tea throughout the day! :]

      February 27, 2015 at 8:37 am

      Yes, it was a nice flavor, for sure! Oh, it’d be SO cool to make your own kombucha 🙂 I haven’t considered it yet. Water and tea – that’s awesome, Farrah!
