Non-alcoholic fermentation at its finest

Inspired by techniques going back over millennia, blended with processes from fine wines and craft beers, at Real Kombucha we really know our fermentation. Our unique brewing process builds on the delicacy of our teas with complex floral and fruity flavours, astringency and subtle acidity more commonly seen in the most carefully crafted alcoholic brews.

A quest to discover the Truly Exquisite

Real Kombucha is brewed from hand-picked, loose-leaf fine teas carefully selected from small gardens around the world. Working closely with our very own tea expert, we have experimented with over 150 teas to develop our three individual brews. Focused on complexity of flavour, our drinks have an ability, unique amongst non-alcoholic drinks, to pair with a wide variety of different foods.

Real Kombucha Dry Dragon Made from Dragonwell Green Tea

Brewed from Dragonwell, a pan-roasted green tea from the area around Longjing Village in Zhejiang, China. Dragonwell makes a kombucha that is light and fruity with notes of grapefruit and lemon, with the clearly detectable undertone of green tea.

Real Kombucha Royal Flush made from First Flush Darjeeling tea

Brewed from First Flush Darjeeling, known in India as the Queen of Teas. Picked by hand as the first tips emerge in spring, the tea is richly fragrant and creates a kombucha that is fresh with notes of rhubarb, white peach, almond and a subtle astringency.

Real Kombucha Smoke House made from Yunnan black tea

Real Kombucha’s Smoke House is brewed from a high-grown black tea from the southwestern districts of the Yunnan province in Southern China. A delicious brew with a warm, golden colour and a rich, smokey flavour that reveals apple and caramel undertones.

Talking farm to table with River Cottage’s Gelf Alderson

The drive down to Axminster is shrouded in fog. The further we move away from London, the less we can see. We pass Stonehenge knowing that it's there, lurking in the mist, but it might as well be in China for all we can make out. Given that we're heading for the...

Pairing exquisite non-alcoholic drinks with the finest food

One of the biggest hurdles that a non-drinker faces is choice. Non-alcoholic drinks have long been limited to sugary, unsophisticated offerings – so much so that they often say they feel overlooked. Real Kombucha is brewed with that at the forefront of our minds. We...

10 top kombucha spots – our pick for March

Getting Sober Curious with Ruby Warrington – a Podcast Interview

The language around being a non-drinker is ultimately insubstantial. In this week's Real Podcast, Jon Wilks chats to Ruby Warrington about the ways in which communication can hinder someone new to a less alcohol-dependent life, just as much as a lack of choice can. On...

Real Kombucha Meets: Jamie Park, Head Chef at The Frog Hoxton (video)

Catching up with Joey O’Hare – a podcast with Masterchef’s Queen of Fermentation

For this week's Real Podcast, I jumped on the wrong bus from Waterloo and turned up late for my meeting with Joey O'Hare. That's OK – she's a kindly soul, as you might have guessed if you ever saw her on Masterchef: The Professionals.  It's been quite a while since...
