Karvana Kombucha Energy Shot
Karvana Kombucha Energy Shot is a concentrated kombucha tea drink with added caffeine from guarana and green tea.
This certified organic energy shot contains 4 billion active probiotic organisms.
We were sent some samples of Karvana to try by the company.
I have tried Kombucha tea in the past and haven't been a big fan of the drink. Kombucha is made by fermenting tea, which produces a slightly effervescent, vinegar-like drink. The vinegar part is what I do not care for.
Karvana Energy Shot Tastes a Little Better
Using berry flavor, sugar, and stevia; Karvana covers up the vinegar-like taste pretty well, but it is still detectable. Luckily it's a small shot and can be consumed after a few swallows.
Some people love the taste of kombucha and these people would probably really like Karvana.
Equal to a Cup of Coffee?
Karvana Kombucha Energy Shot lists 110mg as their caffeine content and I felt a nice wave of alertness after about 15 minutes. However, I'm a bit confused about how they arrived at this number.
They list guarana at 60mg and green tea at 50mg which would equal 110mg, BUT, guarana isn't 100% caffeine nor is green tea. Also kombucha should have some caffeine in it naturally since it is made from tea.
Perhaps, I'll get some clarification on this.
Karvana also makes a standard probiotic shot with 10 billion active cultures. This shot should have a small amount of caffeine in it, so we're trying to nail down that amount as well.
Those that enjoy kombucha and energy shots will probably find Karvana Kombucha Energy Shot a great all-in-one product.
I'll probably stick to getting my extra probiotics through kefir.
