Orange Bärbucha Kombucha
Here's another discontinued Kombucha from our Classic line up.
Time to describe the next Classic Line Kombucha - Orange Tea Bärbucha.
This one is made out of a single black tea that has been flavored with dried orange zest and orange essential oil.
Since the tea is BIO (organic), so are also those flavoring agents (zest and oil).
Which brings us to the common myth of not using flavored teas or teas that have essential oils in them to make Kombucha, as they would supposedly harm the cultures.
Here's our Scoby after F1.
Obviously, it's the tan looking one in the foreground. It looks pretty healthy to us!
As a tea, this particular Orange one is quite tasteful and light, with very nice orange notes.
And it also lacking strong bitter notes. That's why we picked it for this particular Bärbucha Kombucha.
The higher caffeine content creates a nice, natural carbonation, even just after F1:
And that carbonation stays on with this booch, without becoming too excessive:
It may not be as popular as other Kombuchas in this line up, but we enjoy it as an alternative to our other "flavors". That's why it travels with us, as pictured here to Italy:
Or here in Cracow, Poland:
We've been making it for quite some time, even when we did not have current labels for this Kombucha.
Here's a vintage photo from two years ago:
Since, it's a Kombucha for enjoyment, so: Cheers!
