I've previously tried the pomegranate flavor of this same product and enjoyed it a lot so I was excited to give the citrus version a try. The first thing I noticed was that this flavor seemed more carbonated but it may just be that I shook it more vigorously. The taste was super citrusy, almost reminding me of grapefruit. There was a slight bitter edge to it that I hadn't noticed in the pomegranate. So far, I am loving these kombucha shots. The only downside for me is that they really should be refrigerated. I'd love to be able to keep some in my purse for energy emergencies. This is probably for the best though because kombucha is the yogurt of tea and contains live bacteria.
