Biona Organic kombucha
Thanks to fragrant mate leaves, lime blossom and lemon verbena tea herbal extracts, this original kombucha has a distinctive and gently sweet floral flavour, with notes of honey on the nose. With a gentle fizz, it’s a lighter booch option.

Ama Brewery Lemongrass BI Sparkling Tea
Ama Brewery in the Basque Country create sparkling kombuchas that are aged in the bottle for a minimum of six months – akin to a pét-nat wine or champagne. The brewery is headed by Dani Lasa and Ramón Perisé, former and current R&D chefs at famed two-Michelin-star restaurant Mugaritz in San Sebastian, and their kombucha is made with tea from the Rare Tea Company and spring water from the Basque Country. BI, made with wild lemongrass, is gently bubbly and sweet with lime and white blossom notes.
A light and fruity beverage with a delicate effervescence and well balanced sweetness. Blighty Booch’s kombucha is brewed with organic black tea from Hunan in China, resulting in a refreshingly tangy flavour profile. As well as the original, we also especially enjoyed their organic ginger flavour, whose warming, spicy notes perfectly balance the tea’s astringency.
