I'm Obsessed With This New Kombucha That Tastes Like Fall in a Bottle

Well slap on my riding boots and call me basic, because I love all things Fall: pumpkin coffee (made healthier, of course), running in the park when the leaves are changing, and layering up in cozy sweatshirts and cute scarves. One of my favorite things about Fall, aside from dragging my husband to the pumpkin patch, is sipping on seasonal hard cider.

The bad part is that spiked cider obviously contains sugar, and alcoholic beverages should only be consumed in moderation. Since it's generally frowned upon to pop open a hard cider at your desk at 10 a.m., I have found the next best thing: GT's Living in Gratitude Kombucha. GT's stopped by the POPSUGAR office for a kombucha tasting, and as soon as I sipped on this new seasonal flavor, I was in love.

The Fall kombucha is made with apple, turmeric, carrot, and other cider spices (in addition to its standard kombucha formula of fermented black and green tea). It tastes just like my favorite hard cider but only has eight grams of sugar per serving (with two servings per bottle). Plus, since kombucha is fermented with cultures of bacteria and yeast, it contains good-for-your-gut probiotics, which can help regulate digestion and boost your immune system.

GT's is taking the season of giving to heart by partnering with Feeding America to fight domestic hunger. If you post a photo of any GT's kombucha on social media and tag @GTsKombucha with the hashtag #LivingInGratitude, GT's will donate 10 meals to families in need for every photo posted — up to 500,000 meals.

Unfortunately, this kombucha is only available until Dec. 31 (although stores will probably still have some on their shelves into January). Check the store locator to find Living in Gratitude near you; each bottle is about $4. And I'm not the only one enjoying it; scroll through our gallery of other people who are #LivingInGratitude and enjoying their Fall kombuchas!
