Our Minis don't need to be kept refrigerated, but unfortunately if the larger bottles are left out for more than a few hours, we don't recommend drinking them. Warm temperatures restart the fermentation process, which changes the flavour and alcohol content & can cause the pressure to build up. Please be careful when opening it to discard. We recommend chilling your bottle beforehand and carefully removing the cork. Be prepared for it to bubble over.
Here are the facts. Our Minis are pasteurized but our larger bottles aren't. Both contain less than 0.5% alcohol by volume. They are also naturally caffeinated with white and green tea.
We don't promote drinking them while pregnant. At the same time we support women making informed decisions so if you're considering drinking kombucha while pregnant, we recommend talking to your doctor first.
Our kombucha has less than 0.5% alcohol. If you're avoiding alcohol for religious reasons, we recommend consulting a religious authority. Our kombucha has not gone through the Halal certification process. However we've read differing views whether it's permissible because it's still non-intoxicating.
A 150 ml champagne flute of our Blanc, made mostly of white tea, has 8 mg of caffeine. Our Rosé, which is made with green tea, has 17 mg. In comparison, a typical 8 oz cup of decaffeinated coffee has less (3 to 5 mg) and a cup of black tea has more (43 mg).
Our kombucha is unmatched by any other on the market. We use Silver Swallow tea, the most prized white tea from China. It gives our kombucha a noticeable tea-forward taste. We then package it in a traditional Champagne bottle with cork and cage, to give it the pop it deserves.
