REAL Kombucha: Royal Flush 275ml 12 Pack

£30.00 inc VAT

“Easily the best kombucha in the world. Deserves a category of its own.” Head Sommelier, St James Hotel

Produced from fragrant First Flush Darjeeling, picked by hand as the first tips of tea emerge in spring. The Indian city of Darjeeling itself is known as Queen of the Hills and its First Flush is known as the Champagne of Teas.

The tea is richly fragrant and creates a brew that is fresh and floral. We add nothing, but the tea alone develops notes of rhubarb, white peach and a touch of blackcurrant. The fruit and spice flavours round out the acids to make it soft and delicate.

Pair anywhere you might use a sparkling or full bodied white wine such as a chardonnay: white fish, white meat, cream sauces. Anything with delicate umami notes. Perfect with charcuterie as the acidity cuts through the fat.

“Real Kombucha… is  8,000% better than all other kombuchas on the market.”Tomé Morrissy-Swan – The Independent

“We’ve long been huge fans of REAL, a proper grown-up kombucha that prides itself on the quality of the tea used and the complexity of flavour gleaned through fermentation rather than fruity mix-ins. It’s boss.” – Joey O’Hare, Head of Development, allplants

“With aromas of white flowers, peaches and rhubarb, it had a fabulous zippy acidity on the palate and was pleasantly fruity, with a dry, savoury edge and a lasting length that felt refreshing, rather than synthetic and sugary.” – Sophia Longhi, SkinAndPulp

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.

Always chill well and pour gently, definitely no ice. Then sit back and sip slowly to get the best out of the delicate flavours.

Modern Mixology

Big flavours can overpower the delicate subtleties of Royal Flush, so many mixologists we work with use it for a Kir or a Bellini.

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.
