If you are looking for a healthier and cheaper alternative to coffee, this could be the perfect beverage for you. 

I know I’m a little late to this whole kombucha thing, but I recently decided to try the fermented tea many people claim has health benefits. Last year when everyone was posting pictures of their kombuchas on VSCO and raving about the drink, I never ended up trying it for myself. On a whim, I decided to try a few different G.T. kombucha flavors and I was not disappointed. According to Target’s website, G.T. ‘s Enlightened Kombucha is USDA organic, certified organic, gluten free and non-GMO. Kombucha tea only has around 60 calories. This is a huge step up from the typical 200-calorie Starbucks coffee I previously chose. If you are looking for a healthier and cheaper alternative to coffee, this could be the perfect beverage for you. 

1. G.T.’s Enlightened Gingerade Organic Vegan Raw Kombucha, $3.19: 

This is the first flavor I tried. At first I didn’t like the bang; it has a strong vinegar flavor that took me aback. I was not a fan of the unique taste but as I kept drinking, I ended up liking it. Kombucha is definitely an acquired taste. 

2. G.T.’s Synergy Trilogy Organic Vegan Raw Kombucha, $3.19: 

Right away I was shocked with how many flavors were in this drink. Like the Gingerade flavor, it tastes vinegary but isn’t as strong because of the combination of lemon, raspberry and ginger accompanying it. I liked this one the best out of the three flavors I tried, if you are looking for a more fruity version of G.T.’s Gingerade kombucha, this is definitely the one for you. 

3. G.T.’s Synergy Cosmic Cranberry Organic Kombucha, $3.19: 

I absolutely loved this flavor. I’ve always been a fan of cranberry juice, so I was really excited to give this a try. I expected to love this flavor of Kombucha. Like the first two, it also tastes like vinegar but is infused with the taste of cranberries. If you like cranberries, this is the perfect flavor for you.
