    All kombucha contains a trace of Caffeine.

Kombucha

  1. Why doesn’t your Kombucha need refrigeration?

    The yeast has been reduced by filtration which prevents further fermentation.This stabilisers the trace of alcohol to below 0.5%.This is the only reason for refrigerating Kombucha.The bacteria enjoys the warmer temperatures & remains active as it is anaerobic & will remain alive in suspension till the bottle is opened.Our Kombucha can remain unrefrigerated till opened.

  6. Ingredients

    Unfortunately we have to source our primary ingredients (Organic Raw sugar & Organic Green tea) from overseas. This is because they are not grown in commercial quantities in Australia but all of our ingredients have been certified by Australian Certified Organic.Our flavours however, are 100% Australian grown.

     

    ORGANIC GREEN TEA

    ..is used as the antioxidant levels are very high

    During the ferment there is no loss of the beneifts of the tea as the Kombucha consumes only the nitrogen from the tea leaves. 

     

    Organic Raw Sugar

    ..is consumed during the fermenting process.

    A Perfect Kombucha Culture 

    ..we use a proprietry developed culture which produces the best Kombucha every time.

  8. What is the sugar content of your Kombucha?

    This statement applies to our new release amber bottles only.

    The sugar level of Kombucha will be determined by the brewing time. The longer the brew the less the sugar. As we are now brewing sugar free kombucha we are brewing up to 60 days to have the sugar completely consumed by the bacillus. This also increases the amount of bacillus & reduces the yeast ,which in turn stabilizes the kombucha.
