I love me some kombucha.
Aside from the detox and digestive benefits, a cold bottle of “the booch” just makes me feel good.
BUT, my obsession with Mystic Mango and Strawberry Serenity has its fair share of critics, especially when it comes to the sugar content, alcohol volume, acidity, cost, and safety.
This week on the podcast I was more than happy to to help set the record straight with the help of kombucha aficionado Hannah Crum of Kombucha Kamp.
