“If you’re sick of ordering Diet Cokes or soda waters in the pub when you’re not drinking, Real Kombucha is the alternative.” Miranda Larbi – Metro
“Real Kombucha… is 8,000% better than all other kombuchas on the market.” Tomé Morrissy-Swan – The Independent
Dragonwell green tea / First Flush Darjeeling tea/ Yunnan tea, sugar, kombucha culture.
Royal Flush is brewed from First Flush Darjeeling, known in India as the Queen of Teas. The first two tips of tea, picked as they emerge in the first bloom of spring, are dried carefully to tease out all of its delicate character.
Dry Dragon is brewed with pan-fried Dragonwell green tea from Zhejiang Province in China. Fresh leaves are wiped around a piping hot wok to stop the natural oxidation process early. Unlike Japanese green teas, steamed to give a distinct grassy flavour, Dragonwell reveals more complex nutty and straw-like flavours.
Smoke House is brewed from a delicate, smokey black tea from the district of Yunnan in the high mountains of southern China. It is often grown by smaller, permaculture plantations. The growers climb the ancient, fully-grown trees to pick the finest leaves.

Always chill well and pour gently into a wine or champagne glass, definitely no ice. Then sit back and sip slowly to get the best out of the delicate flavours.
At room temperature, the live Kombucha culture will gradually sour the flavour. Nothing harmful, but may not be to your taste. Once opened, keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days.
Kombucha contains all the good stuff in tea, plus a live culture of positive probiotics and organic acids that support a healthy gut and active digestion. Contains just a trace amount of alcohol and a little bit of caffeine to perk up your day.
Dry Dragon Serving Suggestions
The Perfect Serve
This kombucha ferments to give delicate citrus notes of grapefruit and sweet lemons, grounded in a definite vegetal, green tea back note and a longer, fuller-bodied finish. On the tongue it tastes more acidic as we interpret those initial citric flavours.
Dry Dragon is a great mixer for alcohol-free cocktails gagging for real complexity. The greater acidity means it cuts through other flavours such as limes, basil, mint and infusions. Our mixologist friends say it has quickly become an essential part of their toolkit.
Royal Flush Serving Suggestions
The Perfect Serve
Royal Flush brews to give rich notes of rhubarb and gooseberry, rounding out to white fruits maybe a touch of black currant. A delicate floral acidity with a relatively short finish makes Royal Flush fresh and bright. Ideal as a celebration drink in place of a champagne, serve in a white wine glass or champagne flute.
Big flavours can overpower the delicate subtleties of Royal Flush, so many mixologists we work with use it for a Kir or a Bellini.
Smoke House Serving Suggestions
The Perfect Serve
Smoke House is rich, rounded and full of apple and caramel with a delicate smokey top note. While you notice the tea character more than with the other brews, most would guess they were drinking a light natural cider.
Fermented from a black tea, Smoke House holds chocolate, malt and floral characters well, making it an ideal mixer for rums, whiskies and big-flavoured spirits. It also blends well with dry spices and green herbs.
Dry Dragon Food Pairings
A wonderful all-day drink, ideal for general refreshment and hydration. Dry Dragon is great with fresh summer salads, green vegetables, shellfish or fruit. It sits naturally alongside light, fresh Asian dishes. Serve ice-cold to allow the fresh aromas to circulate before the first taste.
Royal Flush Food Pairings
Royal Flush pairs well with white meats, white fish and umami-rich cream sauces. It also works well as an aperitif, with charcuterie, in place of sauterne with foie gras or dessert wines with pudding.
Smoke House Food Pairings
Smoke House serves well alongside robust meats, spicy and smoked foods or full-flavoured sauces. It’s also fantastic with rich desserts or as a relaxing post-dinner digestif.
