Reeds has been one of my favorite kombuchas for awhile. I came across a flavor I’ve never tried, passion mango ginger on a clearance sale at the grocery and bought five bottles. I knew that since it was Reeds it was a safe bet. I just tried one this morning, and man is it delicious!
The ginger flavor is a real stand-out, so if you don’t like ginger this is not for you. I taste ginger first, and then a wonderful fruitiness from the mango, passion and orange juice. Something that I like about Reeds kombuchas is that it’s made with a combination of oolong and yerba mate teas. I love yerba mate, when I was drinking caffeine on the regular, yerba mate was part of every morning.
Reeds kombuchas are nice and fizzy, and perfectly balanced. They aren’t too sweet, and aren’t too dry or sour either. I feel like Reeds would be a good starter kombucha for people who want the benefits, but are scared to try it. They would also be good for people who are trying to kick their soda habit. In all the places that I’ve purchased Reeds kombucha, I’ve never seen passion mango ginger flavor, and that’s a shame because it is absolutely delicious, and really unique compared to all the other kombuchas I’ve tried. I’m a huge fan of ginger, so anything with a ginger kick gets my vote.
I seriously cannot recommend this flavor enough. And as I mentioned all of Reeds kombuchas are absolutely delicious! It’s a super delicious way to get some probiotics in and improve your digestion!

I’ve had many flavors of GT’s kombucha, in fact I thought I had tried them all until I saw Laveender Love the other day at the grocery. They were having a sale so I decided to try it. I was a little bit scared that it would taste very floral-y, but luckily that is not the case. This kombucha has elderberry and lavender so it tastes like berries with a slight floral finish. It’s really refreshing and light. I think this may be my favorite flavor from GT’s.
The best thing about this kombucha is how I felt after drinking it. I felt that little happy lift you get from kombucha, and I also felt very calm and relaxed after drinking it. You know when people tell you to take a chill pill? That’s how I felt.
I also feel like I slept better than usual last night. Sometimes I wake up several times in the night and have to woo myself back to sleep. but last night I fell asleep as soon as I closed my eyes, and slept through the night.
This is by far one of the best kombuchas I’ve tried. GT’s is the first kombucha I ever tried, and back in the day it used to be the only booch you’d see at most groceries. So for those reasons it holds a place in my heart. But this flavor takes that love to a whole new level. It’s fizzy, refreshing, sweet but not too sweet and energizing and calming. This is definitely my new favorite flavor, and I can’t recommend it enough. It would be great for a stressful day when you just need to take a moment for yourself.
