What Exactly is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a living, probiotic tea that has long been associated with wellness and vitality. It is brewed by combining tea and sugar with a fermenting culture called a “mother” or SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast).  The culture uses the sugar for the fermentation process so there is little residual sugar in the final product. The result is a sparkling, refreshing beverage that is a little sweet and a little tart, often compared to apple cider. We flavor our kombucha with spices, herbs and tinctures to enhance their taste and benefit. All our kombucha is certified USDA organic, 100% vegan, non-gmo and gluten-free.

Why Drink Kombucha?

Kombucha is a delicious and thirst quenching beverage with much lower sugar content than soda or fruit juice. It is touted for it’s combination of anti-oxidants, probiotics and amino acids.

What kind of teas are used?

We use of a blend of black and green teas – they vary from blend to blend but include assam, gunpowder green, oolong and jasmine. We use only organic, fair trade teas in our products.

Is it Gluten-Free?

While we are not certified gluten-free, we do not use any products containing gluten in the manufacturing of our kombucha.

Tonya is the mother of two small humans and untold batches of booch.  Prior to these ventures, Tonya honed her wellness skills as an occupational therapist. Using tools like yoga, meditation, and diet, she approached her clients with a “whole person” philosophy.  She rejects the notion that “good for you” is antithetical to “delicious” and hence, Mother Kombucha was born.
