RISE provided me with the products for this review/giveaway, though all opinions are 100% my own.
I first heard of kombucha from my good friend Shalan who makes her own brew. Her kombucha is absolutely delicious, and she's always happy to share her recent batch or even a scoby or two so I can try making it at home. I'm the kind of person who forgets things easily, and needless to say my homemade kombucha was an unfortunate victim. Kombucha is a living culture, and you have to feed it sugar to maintain it a little bit. Coupled with the fact that you actually have to put it in a dark corner somewhere while it ferments, I am prone to completely forgetting about it until it's too late. This is why RISE first appealed to me, because it's already brewed and bottled and 100% safe for me to drink without having to worry if I fed the darn thing.
