What is kombucha?

Kombucha is a traditional word for fermented tea. Through the process of fermentation, sweet tea becomes a healthy, bubbly brew. Kombucha has various ancient origin stories dating back thousands of years. It helps to promote healthy bacteria in the gut (probiotics!), contains antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and is low in calories and sugar.

Is kombucha alcoholic?

Kombucha is not an alcoholic ferment like beer or wine, but it does contain naturally-occurring trace amounts of alcohol. We have an in-house quality control lab, and also work with an independent lab regularly, consulting professional analysts to maintain our ferments below the required 0.5% ABV.
