About our Kombucha
In short, Kombucha is a living drink. As such there can sometimes be ferment in the bottle. It is best served poured into a glass from the bottle and leaving the sediment in the bottom. Pour, and enjoy your living tea. Store it cool.
Our kombucha is craft-brewed in the UK. We do not add fruits or fruits during secondary fermentation. We believe that finest quality teas have all the aromatics needed for a natural flavour. Kombucha as it should be. Our kombucha is low in sugar and brewed with a lower acidity, leading to a drink which is refreshing yet still packs a feel good punch! We are award-winning. We make an award-winning kombucha. Our kombucha is made to pair with dinner, lunch, brunch, breakfast, and midnight snacks!

Like many fermented foods and drinks, a small amount of alcohol is produced during the natural fermentation process. Our brewing process ensures that this is always less than 0.5%. Read our blog post about alcohol in kombucha. Did you know similar levels of alcohol are found in fruit juices and soft drinks?
The SCOBY is a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. A great analogy is to think of it as the ‘home’ for the good bacteria and healthy yeasts that magically transforms tea into kombucha.
If you’ve ever made sourdough bread, it’s similar to the “starter” that you keep to one side for the next batch.
Yes. Our kombucha is raw and unpasteurised. This ensures that the beneficial bacteria, live cultures and organic acids remain healthy and intact.
Yes, absolutely. Our teas come from members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, an organisation dedicated to making the tea industry “socially just and environmentally sustainable”, with representation in all of the world’s major tea growing areas. Also, the sugar used in our kombucha is Fairtrade certified.
Yes. The amount between the varieties does vary as the Sencha Green kombucha tea is lower than the others as it is a made with a green tea. As a general rule, kombucha has about ⅓ the amount of caffeine as the tea it is made with.
Yes. It is full of lots of good stuff and no animals were harmed in the making of (and no gluten was either).
No, but not for the lack of trying. We have tested lots of teas and found that the organic teas just didn’t taste as good as conventionally-grown tea, before and after fermentation. We brew for flavour, so something had to give. There are relatively few organic teas available on the market, but as the supply develops we will certainly revisit the issue and try again! As point above, we are fully committed to fair trade and ethical produce. Our Sencha Green Tea is organic.
Storing the Booch
Our kombucha can be stored in a cool place out of direct sunlight. In the warmer months make sure to keep it stored cool to ensure it doesn't carry on fermenting. It is unpasteurised.
The shelf life of our kombucha is normally 6 months from when it is made, and as with most food and drink it tastes better when fresh. Once opened, the kombucha will start to lose its fizz.
I'm afraid we don't take the bottles back for recycling and/or reusing. We get asked this question a lot. We don't have the facilities at the brewery at this time. But, thanks for asking!
