    Yep, I buy a couple bottles of GT's a week. Citrus and strawberry are my favorites. A lot of people make their own, but I tend toward massive failure at stuff like that, so I just buy it.

          I tried kombucha for the first time tonight, and I have to say, its not to my taste :\ Like, really not. At all.

              The first bottle I bought was nasty. It wasn't G.T's though. I picked up a bottle of G.T.'s after, and have been hooked ever since.

                I drink it daily. About 3 oz with my heaviest meat meal to aid digestion. I make my own now, but I use GT's whenever I run out!

                  Just tried it for the first time today. It was very good, but then again, I also like to drink apple cider vinegar tea.

                  This seems like a tasty drink, and I crave diet pepsi once in a while I can't drink it because it upsets my tummy so this is a perfect subsitute!

                    LOVE it. Get this odd kind of high feeling that is unlike anything else I've ever tried. Mmmmmm...

                      We bought a Kombucha mother on Ebay for about 3 bucks and make ours at home. It's pretty easy and saves a TON of money in the long run.

                        I was making my own for a while, but then got lazy. But after doing the math and realizing that I'm spending almost $800 a year on GT's, I decided to stop being lazy. Now, I just have to wait for my SCOBY to start growing.

                          Where can you get kombucha at? Or specifically, where do you get G.T. at?

                              Most of our markets here have it BUT with added crap. Something to really watch.

                              I am on my way to Trader Joe's, not sure if they have it.

                              I have failed twice last week. 1) Kombucha and 2) fermenting cabbage.

                              I am indeed my own little project.
