My First Kombucha

Bushfires near me
Watch the world (well state) burn at Fires Near Me. Thanks for all your great work, RFS!!!

So, it was 35 degrees here today, there were fires all around the lake and Cessnock area, and I was a little hot under the collar so finally decided to try one of the bottles of Kombucha based drink I’d won a month or so back but was yet to brave because WTF is this stuff??

Kombucha

And you know what? It may be the heatstroke, but this stuff was tasty! I can’t ever bring myself to buy anything with all the claims it has on the label, but I’m certainly going to try the other Tea Gardens Kombucha flavours I have at the back of the fridge!

Best thing? It’s a local hunter company, yup in Tea Gardens!

… as long as the fires don’t scare them away!

Yummy Summer Drinks

As the weather heats up, we’re all looking for something more interesting than water, but not coke, to quench our thirsts with. Here’s a few I’ve tried recently…

GC Raw Juices. All with less than 10g of sugar per 100mL, these aren’t just ordinary fruit juices. They have veges too, without that vege taste :)

My fave was the Berry Burst with its sneaky beetroot juice (great for blood pressure), which I downed after a hot and humid run. Rish went the Citrus Crush which was a little like a breakfast juice, while my flatmate felt the Pine Punch was best served on a Friday afternoon with ice and vodka ;)

Coconut water

Next up, we have the box of C Coconut Water that arrived last week. A Sydney based company, bringing this drink to us, with no added sugar. Not to my taste, but Rish has been guzzling it!

Herrljunga apple and pear cider

Lastly, Herrljunga’s +46 Apple and Pear Cider. From sweeden, and for only $12 for a four pack from BWS this week, goes down a treat!

So tell me, what are your summer refreshments of choice?

The juices were received from Soup to review, the Coconut water was won, and the cider was bought on a whim

Clayton’s. Cos Rish hadn’t heard of it til recently.

Claytons

From Wikipedia

Claytons is the brand name of a non-alcoholic, non-carbonated beverage coloured and packaged to resemble bottled whisky. It was the subject of a major marketing campaign in Australia and New Zealand in the 1970s and 1980s, promoting it as “the drink you have when you’re not having a drink” at a time when alcohol was being targeted as a major factor in the road toll.

Anyone ever tried it??
