DO YOUR PRODUCTS NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?

Yes! Due to the nature of kombucha and the live bacteria that produces CO2, there is pressured gas inside. By refrigerating our product it slows down the gas formation. Do not shake! Refrigerate immediately after your purchase unless consuming.

Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. The organism that eats sugars in the tea to create our delicious gut-friendly kombucha!
