Kombucha: $10 to $11/ 1 L or $4.25 to $4.75/ 12 oz.

Blue Lady – Kombucha from Top Hat:

  • A bit on the sweeter side for those who don’t like it quite so vinegar-forward. We fermented a black tea infused with pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, grapefruit and orange flavours that somehow still tastes like tea. Just the way we like it! (Blue Lady loose teas also available at Barley’s)

Hawaiian – Kombucha from Hoochy ‘Booch:

  • Pineapple & other tropical fruits. Forget the airline tickets, one sip of the Hawaiian and no matter the season, will have you whisked away to that tropical island paradise. Enlivening tropical fruit infusions (no added fruit juice remember) leaves you feeling totally refreshed and beach ready!

Liquid Sunshine – Kombucha from Raincoast:

  • A bright stream of pink grapefruit and hibiscus, blended with sweet rosehips and tropical fruit.

Out of the Blue – Kombucha from Raincoast:

  • Citrus peel, lemon essential oil, and the antioxidant power and vibrancy of blue majik.

What Is Kombucha?

Kombucha, (pronounced kum-boo-cha), is a living, slightly tart, carbonated tea beverage that’s low in sugar and rich in probiotics and other gut-supporting benefits. Kombucha is made by fermenting black or green tea, sugar, and a culture called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria & Yeast) for anywhere from a week to a month, depending on the level of tartness desired.

Because it is fermented, there will be a tiny amount of alcohol, however at 0.5% or less, it is considered a non-alcoholic beverage.

What is Water Kefir?

Similar to kombucha, kefir (pronounced kuh-feer) is a lightly fermented beverage made by fermenting sugar water with kefir grains. Unlike a kombucha SCOBY, water kefir SCOBY colonies look like small crystals! Water kefir also has many of the same positive benefits of Kombucha.
