Frequently asked questions

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented tea. It is an ancient preparation of tea, sugar, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) which has been enjoyed for centuries all over the world and is renowned as a universal health tonic.

Does your kombucha contain alcohol?

Auspicious Brew is licensed as an alcoholic beverage because through the natural process of fermentation kombucha exceeds the limit of 0.5% ABV. Many companies on the market are pasteurizing their kombucha to control its fermentation, killing off beneficial constituents so that it can be more easily distributed as a non-alcoholic beverage. Others dilute their kombucha to lower its ABV. We choose to brew our kombucha authentically. Our product is not pasteurized or adulterated with powdered probiotics. It is not watered down. It is raw and alive and brewed to be enjoyed cold, as soon as possible.

How do you flavor Auspicious Brew?

The ingredients we use are influenced largely by the season we're brewing in. We are most inspired by what's available locally and in-season, so what we brew changes throughout the year. We love using fresh herbs from our gardens or throughout the colder months, ones we've harvested and preserved. When we cannot source our own ingredients, we take pride in supporting other small scale growers around the world. In our kombucha herbs are the stars of the show. To balance their many complex flavors we also use fresh juices and organic fruits and vegetables.

Why should I drink kombucha?

We are not here to prescribe anything or make extravagant health claims. Drink kombucha because it's fizzy and delicious and is an excellent alternative to soda or higher alcohol beverages. Drink kombucha because you enjoy it, because it uplifts you, because it helps connect you to the natural world.
