I have been drinking the Asian Pear and Ginger Kombucha for years. I loved the taste that they created with this tea. Sadly I purchased 3 bottles from where I have been purchasing from for the last few years to find the bottle labeling had changed and I prayed that the taste was still the same. Alas it is not. I can not drink anything with Stevia in it and that familiar taste was there in the new bottle. So it appears, to save half the calories, Stevia was added. I would prefer the taste and the added calories than to have something take on a false sweet taste. If anyone knows anything about Kombucha, it needs to be made with real sugar, and there is no need to alter the taste with stevia to make it taste sweeter. Just my opinion, but then I am just one small person in a very big world. I will never be able to enjoy that goodness that I have come to love. Guess it's finally time to make my own. I am certain I will not come close to what I have enjoyed, but it will be 100 times better than something with stevia where stevia is not needed.
