Brewing kombucha at home has never tasted so good. This peach pie kombucha recipe has a delectable, sweet flavor without sacrificing the health benefits of fermented tea. This new flavor brings home brewing to a whole new level. 

Featuring maple syrup, hints of vanilla, and sweet, fresh peaches, this gluten-free kombucha recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth. We use green tea kombucha as the base flavor, but oolong or black tea are also good options.

Peach Pie Kombucha

  • Total Time:
    3 days

  • Yield:
    8 Servings 1x


This second fermentation recipe has an outstanding balance of fizz and sweetness with slightly tart undertones from the kombucha tea. I prefer homemade tea, but you can use store-bought kombucha if needed.




  1. Put the diced peach, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and kombucha in a large airtight container, leaving a couple of inches of headspace at the top.
  2. Stir to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
  3. Allow the kombucha mixture to ferment for three days in a dark storage area at room temperature.
  4. Strain the mixture.
  5. Divide the kombucha into single-serving bottles if desired.
  6. Chill the bottles in the fridge for at least six hours. Serve and enjoy.


You can use cane sugar, coconut sugar, honey, or sugar syrup if you don’t have maple syrup.

Feel free to experiment with different fresh fruit combinations. Adding apple slices brings a honey-like sweetness to the batch of kombucha, grapefruit brings in some rich sweet variety, and lemon juice allows some tanginess to shine.

If you want a heightened burst of flavor, use ginger kombucha instead of unflavored kombucha.

Serve this tea over ice cream for an even sweeter concoction, similar to a root beer float.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Fermenting Time: 72 hours

What Does Peach Pie Kombucha Taste Like?

As the name suggests, peach pie kombucha possesses a distinct, sweet, fruity flavor. The fresh peaches, vanilla, and maple syrup all work harmoniously together to create a kombucha flavor that’s sweet, compelling, and delicious.

Besides that, the delicate profile of green tea kombucha also augments the flavor—providing a gentle tartness that allows the ingredient base to truly shine. Peach pie kombucha is a sweet, refreshing, and smooth flavor.

Does Peach Pie Kombucha Have Any Health Benefits?

While this kombucha recipe is sweeter than most, it’s still kombucha at the end of the day. It has high antioxidant and probiotic levels, is a potent facilitator for regulating blood pressure levels, and is an excellent immune system booster.

Besides that, the peaches used in this flavored kombucha also come with additional health benefits.

Fresh peaches:

  • Are high in fiber.
  • Are good for heart health.
  • Contain cancer-fighting prebiotics.
  • Are high in beta-carotene, which is good for eye health.

Fresh peaches contain more vitamins and minerals than canned peaches, so try to opt for the former as much as possible.

How Much Caffeine Is In Peach Pie Kombucha?

Made with green tea, peach pie kombucha has approximately 10 mg of caffeine per 8-ounce serving. If you use a different tea base, this number could increase or decrease slightly. Either way, the caffeine content in kombucha isn’t typically high enough to affect most adults’ ability to sleep.

How Many Calories Are In Peach Pie Kombucha?

There are approximately 50 calories in a fizzy, 8-oz serving of peach pie kombucha. Here’s how they add up:

  • Peach: 7 calories
  • Maple syrup: 13 calories
  • Vanilla extract: <1 calorie
  • Kombucha: 30 calories

If you add garnishes or other fruits, the calorie count may increase by about 20-30 calories. 

Nonetheless, you’re not consuming as many calories with kombucha as with sweetened beverages, so it’s possible to incorporate this drink into a weight-loss diet.

Should You Make This Recipe with Young, Sweet Kombucha or Older, Sour Kombucha?

You can use young or old kombucha for this recipe. The recipe list is quite sweet on its own, so if you’re sensitive to sweetness, brew your kombucha a little longer to bring out the drink’s bubbly, tarter flavor. Made with younger kombucha, it will taste sweeter and slightly less fizzy.

In either case, you’re still getting the full benefits of the drink, so it’s just a matter of carbonation and taste preference.


Joshua recently discovered flavored kombucha and has since become a fan of its taste and health properties. He's currently attempting to taste test at least 20 different kombucha flavors, and his current favorite is apple kombucha.
