Because our kombucha is a live, unpasterized product, it should be kept refrigerated. This prevents fermentation from restarting and changing the taste, alcohol content and carbonation level.
The bottle can be stored upright or lying down. It's normal for some culture to settle at the bottom.
Unfortunately, if it's been out of the fridge for more than a few hours, we don't recommend drinking it. Warm temperatures restart the fermentation process, changing the flavour and alcohol content & causing 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.
There's a best before date on the bottle. We recommend drinking it before that.
After opening, it can be stored up to 12h in the fridge with a champagne stopper—so basically from brunch to nightcap. Longer and it loses its carbonation level.
Our kombucha is unpasteurized and contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume. So we don't promote drinking it while pregnant. It's also naturally caffeinated with white and green tea. 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 237 ml (8 oz) cup of decaffeinated coffee has 3 to 5 mg and a cup of black tea has 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.
