TASTING STEPS

As in all food and drink tastings, the goal is to observe the “third taste” that arises from the pairing.

  • The sight: Observe the kombucha, its color, its opacity, its bubbles.
  • The nose: Smell the kombucha as well as the bûchette. What aromas are released? Can you feel the saliva settling in your mouth?
  • The taste: Taste the two elements of the pairing separately, starting with the kombucha.
  • Then you can eat a piece of bûchette and taste the kombucha again.
  • Take the time to observe the texture on the palate, the acidity, the sweetness, the astringency, the intensity, the aromas (vegetal, fruity, floral, spicy …) all the subtleties. Do you recognize any familiar tastes?
  • Then have conscientious fun experimenting with the pairings, you can even add foods you have on hand to play with.
  • Boreal Tonic kombucha has not yet been paired … so don’t hesitate to try it with all the bûchettes and find out what it goes well with.

You have 3 of the following pairing. They are in the correct tasting order.
