A jar of fermenting kombucha

Offering the best kombucha flavors is the key to keeping your customers engaged and coming back for more. Of course, if you ask ten different people for kombucha flavor ideas, there’s a high chance you’ll get ten different answers! We’re here to provide some expert insight and advice so you can keep your menu fresh and exciting.

As a company with close ties to the industry—we’re the go-to supplier of fruit purees for quite a few kombucheries—we have our fingers on the pulse of what’s hot and what’s not—what pops and what flops, if you will. 

In order to stand out from the competition, we recommend getting inspired by trending flavors, and then adding your own twists to make the tried-and-true best kombucha flavors your own.

Here’s a look at three awesome flavors that could put your kombucha operation on the map.

1. Citrus Punch

A variety of sliced citrus fruits

Take traditional orange kombucha to the next level!

For your base, use orange puree, tangerine puree, and blood orange puree. This combination of citrus purees creates a more complex, elevated version of a classic orange flavor.

From there, add a little zingy brightness with lemon puree and lime puree. Alternatively, grapefruit puree can also provide a nice contrasting sourness. Finally, punch it up with the sweetness of cherry puree (strawberry works great, too).

2. Tropical Paradise

Pineapple and coconut on a cutting board

If you’re brainstorming the best kombucha flavors for summertime sipping, this vacation-in-a-can idea is sure to please.

For the primary flavor base, we take inspiration from the beloved piña colada—pineapple puree and coconut puree with just a tiny splash of banana puree (a little goes a long way).

Now, add some papaya puree for buttery sweetness and pink guava puree for floral tanginess. You can also experiment with other tropical fruit purees to hit specific notes—mango puree is a fantastic option. Welcome to tropical paradise!

3. Berry Blast

Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries

For an elevated take on traditional kombucha flavor, use berry purees with bolder, more unique flavor profiles. People really love the classic berry medley flavor, but it’s often one-dimensional. This is one of the best kombucha flavors because it’s a popular flavor, only better.

Start with equal parts raspberry puree, blueberry puree, and strawberry puree. This will give you the classic berry flavor people know and love. 

Now for the blast. The addition of acai puree brings a deep richness almost like dark chocolate. Finish the recipe with Andean blackberry puree to add just a bit of tart bite to round it out.
