Still trying to figure out how Seattle Kombucha might fit into your day?

Wayne Greenfield drinking Seattle Kombucha in Seattle, WA

Here's how it fits into mine...

Morning... glass of water, vitamins, supplements, cup of coffee, eat breakfast. Maybe start a can of Seattle Kombucha. I'll usually go with our green tea flavors in the morning like Mango, Ginger or Ginger Jasmine.

Late Morning...  While working, I usually sip on a glass of Seattle Kombucha and have a glass or container of water nearby.

If I feel I want/need some caffeine, I might also sip on some hot or iced green tea throughout the day depending on the time of year. My personal favorite teas are Jasmine Green, Sencha and our Gunpowder Green. Or maybe an Oolong or a China Breakfast with or without some cardamom... (BTW, we started selling the teas we use to make our kombucha, and other popular teas.)

Afternoon... After lunch, I'll try to drink another 8-16oz of water, either still or sparkling water, depending on my mood. I'm partial to sparkling Pellegrino in glass bottle or Liquid Death in aluminum cans at the moment to avoid consuming plastic, and because I prefer the taste of those two brands. I have water filtration systems at home and at the brewery for our tap water in order to make it healthier, less expensive and taste better. And I carry around reusable bottles for my water and tea. I continue to sip on my kombucha, water, tea and coffee throughout the day.

After Work... Before, during or after dinner while relaxing I may have another kombucha or a sparkling water.

I used to go for a glass of wine, beer, or cocktail. Today, I don't feel the need to have a full serving of these anymore. I don't want the alcohol, calories or sugars, or be kept from sleeping well at night. In addition to healthy eating and digestion, and getting sufficient physical movement throughout my day, I find getting a good night's sleep is crucial to my overall health and well being.

If I do drink, I might just have a sip of wine, scotch or a beer. I prefer something that has a big mouthfeel and lingering finish because a small sip of one of these will be satisfactory to me. Sometimes I just want a sip to get a taste.

If I am trying to avoid alcohol altogether (which is most days), but I want that lingering finish, I tend to drink a kombucha like our Lady Grey or Raspberry Rose which are more black tea forward and have a thicker mouthfeel from the extra tannins in the tea. For me, these are more of a sipping kombucha and the small level of caffeine doesn't keep me up at night.

Most nights I prefer to end my day with a fruitier flavor like our Blood Orange, Ginger, Ginger Jasmine or Mango. In the fall and winter I'll crave the Apple Chai more, but I also find the Apple Chai to be very refreshing on a hot summer day.

What works for you? I'd love to hear more about your routine and how you consume kombucha as part of your daily activities. Send me an email to wayne@seattlekombucha.com
