When we talk about fresh Kombucha; we mean Kombucha that has been bottled straight from an authentic fermentation, and consumed within a small frame time (max 6 months).

Authentic fermentation refers to the fermentation of sweet tea with a starter culture called a SCOBY.

If you are buying Kombucha in a store, this blog post covers the most important check points to look out for when searching for a good quality Kombucha!


When we talk about raw Kombucha; we mean Kombucha that has not been pasteurised or filtered in any way shape or form.

You can normally tell raw Kombucha as it will often form a light sediment within the bottle (which by the way is totally normal, natural & fine to consume).

When we talk about natural Kombucha; we always make our Kombucha without any nasty surprises. Our Kombucha will never contain unnatural flavourings, extra sugars or preservatives.

Our Kombucha contains only the ingredients needed; Water, Green Tea, Sugar, & Live Kombucha Cultures.
