What is Kombucha? Kombucha is a fermented tea that contains living cultures which aid digestion. There can be billions of living organisms in every bottle, accompanied by a naturally occurring fizz. This tangy and tart beverage is unlike soda and is typically made with fruits and herbal ingredients. It is not typically sweet but is very refreshing!
Kombucha possesses ancient healing properties that have helped bring good health to many people around the world, which is why this super-drink has gained so much popularity.
Drinking the fermented tea can have an equivalent effect to taking a probiotic. One of the main substances produced during the fermentation of kombucha is acetic acid, which is also abundant in vinegar. Acetic acid is able to kill many potentially harmful microorganisms and protect against infection-causing bacteria.
The story of GT’s
In late 1994, GT’s mom, Laraine, was diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of breast cancer. When she healed, Laraine shared with doctors that she had been drinking a very pungent, homemade tea. That tea was GT’s Kombucha.
Inspired by his mom’s experience, it became GT’s mission to make his Kombucha accessible for everyone, everywhere. At only 15, he began bottling his brew in the kitchen of his parents’ Southern California home and became the first to put Kombucha on shelves in the U.S.
We’ve stayed true to the authentic brewing process of this sacred elixir for over 20 years. Our #1 selling Kombucha is raw, organic, and naturally effervescent. We handcraft each unique offering in small batches to maintain and promote the living cultures, amino acids, polyphenols, and active enzymes this fermented tea contains. Always cultured, never compromised.
We craft seasonal Kombucha flavors for a number of reasons – most importantly, giving back to our community. Inspired by Nature’s beautiful offerings, it’s an opportunity for us to innovate with unique ingredients that complement each season and we use this as an opportunity to tell meaningful stories. Each seasonal offering promotes an important message, like maintaining a daily practice of gratitude, living life to your greatest potential, and celebrating the importance of love.
