  1. Fresh, tasty, full of antioxidents. I drink it hot and mix it with black tea to make lovely kombucha.

  3. I have yet to find a satisfactory way of drinking it. I need to do more experimentation. I need a very , very low caffeine product but the purple colour can only be obtained by using a stronger brew than I would like. For a normal tea drinker it would be a lovely tea but for me I have yet to get the balance right.
