Kombucha is fermented tea. Alcohol is a natural result of fermentation. Our kombucha comes in at 1.5% ABV, as does any kombucha made in the traditional style. Many companies are willing to strip alcohol in order to sell their booch alongside juice. We, however, reject any process that compromises the taste or living culture in our kombucha.
We begin by brewing a batch of organic green and black tea. The brew is cooled and then blended with liquid from a previous batch, introducing our tea to the yeasts and bacteria native to our SCOBY. SCOBY is an acronym for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria & Yeast and is the culture responsible for fermenting the tea. When the SCOBY is introduced to the brew, the yeasts will begin converting sugars into alcohol and the bacteria, in turn, will convert that alcohol into B vitamins and organic acids.
Maine Blueberries boost flavor, aesthetic, and antioxidant content in our booch. When mixing at home, be liberal. A healthy quantity of blueberry will provide the pinkish tint required for back porch sessions.
