Ripe Washington organic strawberries are cold pressed and infused in our private kombucha blend to produce a well balanced brew with fruity tropical notes and a nutty finish. Our private kombucha blend includes a melange of lemongrass, Yunnan black tea, and roasted Japanese green tea, creating a beautiful backdrop for this thirst quenching fruity brew.
Raw cold pressed juice in our raw kombucha is stabilized through fermentation rather than pasteurization. When raw foods are cold pressed and treated delicately, the phytonutrients and probiotics are preserved and give quintessential functional benefits to our health, such as digestion, immune system, and even mental and emotional stability. This is something larger companies in the industry cannot do, because they need to preserving self-life and sacrifice functional benefits of raw foods by pasteurizing for large scale distribution. All the flavors of our brews are produced from organic raw whole ingredients, juiced and infused by our team of artisans in house. We pride ourselves in purchasing ingredients from local farmers we know so well, we text them for orders and sometimes even go to their homes to pick them up.
Exclusively made with Organic Ingredients: 100% raw kombucha (made with water, lemongrass, Yunnan black tea, Houjicha green tea, evaporated cane sugar), strawberry.
Attributes about our Kombucha
- Our kombucha is non-alcoholic.
- Our shelf life is 6 months. After 6 months, we cannot guarantee the alcohol content of the beverage will not increase above the non-alcoholic beverage level and will no longer be accurately labeled.
- Our kombucha is lower in acidity than most kombucha companies with an average pH of 3.4 (compared in 2.8 in many other companies).
- All carbonation is naturally occurring in our kombucha, produced by the happy probiotics inside each bottle. If your kombucha ever becomes flat, you can simply tighten the cap and allow the bottle to sit in room temperature. Fermentation will commence and re-carbonate your beverage. Be careful to open after cooling in the refrigerator overnight as the bottle can overflow with foam.
- We never add sugar after the primary fermentation, but please note that natural raw kombucha is not a sugar free beverage as residual sugar is present to keep the probiotics active in the beverage to give you their functional benefits.
- Please keep our kombucha refrigerated.
- Please open carefully as the product is carbonated and can overflow or leak if shaken or warm.
Guide to purchasing our Kombucha:
- One case of 16 oz bottles are sold at a special “baker’s dozen” rate – you pay for 11 bottles, and get the 12th on the house.
- Kegs are the ultimate way to save. Each 5 gallon keg contains 80 servings of 8 ounces ($2.50/16 oz). Kegs do require you to purchase your own cold-holding dispensing systems such as a kegerator. You can place them in a refrigerator with a simple garden hose dispenser. The empty kegs themselves are property of Shen Zen Tea and are not part of the sale. Kegs that are damaged or stolen will require a $65 keg replacement fee.
- These products are only available via local delivery to the following Washington State counties: King, Snohomish, and Pierce. If you would like to purchase individual bottles, please visit one of our stockists, or try the kombucha on tap at a farmers market.
- After the kombucha is purchased, we will contact you to arrange a drop-off. If the address is within 50 miles of Seattle you can expect delivery within 5 business days. If the delivery address is further than 50 miles, we will contact you to arrange a delivery date.
