What Does Kombucha Tea Taste Like? 

Let's start with explaining what kombucha is. It's a tea (usually black) prepared with a kombucha "mother" culture, or scoby, which is comprised of bacteria and yeast that ferment the tea.

Kombucha is tart to really tart with a funky flavor from the fermentation process. It's frequently mixed with fruit juices to sweeten it, so it becomes tart and sweet with floral and fruity notes with a hint of apple cider vinegar. A complex and interesting flavor to say the least.

I like to describe it as a milder version of beer which is reflected in the fact that it does have a very small alcohol content.

Kombucha Texture and Mouthfeel

Kombucha has a couple of different textures happening at the same time. The primary texture and mouthfeel is the fizziness. When you uncap it, you'll probably hear a little burst of air being released.

The other texture you may come across is the slippery, sludgy sediment, which is perfectly fine—that's just the natural culture. If you get a kombucha tea on tap, you might not get any of it in your glass at all.
