If you would have mentioned the kombucha to me a few years ago I wouldn’t have had a clue what it was. Fast forward to today and kombucha (more precisely Health-Ade Kombucha) is one of our favorite drinks. We first found Health-Ade Kombucha while shopping the aisles of our local Trader Joe’s. Sadly, they only carry one flavor so I reached out to Health-Ade to see if the rest of their line was just as delicious.
So what exactly is Kombucha?
Kombucha is fermented tea, that naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It has been enjoyed across countless countries for thousands of years as a delicious and refreshing beverage that makes you feel good. Old-school kombucha is made via primary and secondary fermentation, though many brands try to hasten this very natural process. Simply put, fermentation is where the activity of friendly bacteria, yeasts, and enzymes (aka probiotics) eat the sugar in sweet tea and turn it into tasty, and slightly bubbly, kombucha. A couple things to note – all kombucha is made with sugar (it’s more for the probiotics than for you) AND the highest quality ingredients will make the best tasting brew. Kombucha is a delicious, effervescent, and refreshing beverage—naturally containing probiotics and organic acids, and low in sugar, caffeine, and calories.
So why should you choose Health-Ade Kombucha?
- The only commercial kombucha fermented 100% in glass to prevent plastic and metal leaching.
- Hand-crafted in super-small 2.5 gallon batches for premium quality.
- Flavored with only the highest quality ingredients, like cold-pressed juice from organic produce.
- Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Raw, Vegan, Kosher.
- Naturally fermented using all stages; the brew tells the brewers when it’s ready.
- NO chemicals or synthetic probiotics.
As you can see via the photos Health-Ade offers a wide variety of Kombucha including Cold-Pressed and Super Tea. The difference is that cold-pressed is hand-crafted in small batches using only the freshest organic and raw ingredients, flavored with cold-pressed juice, fermented 100% in glass and packaged in UV-protective amber bottles. Super Tea is natural botanical superfoods and raw organic kombucha.
I was sent the whole entire line of Health-Ade Kombucha to try and it was a delight sampling each and every effervescent flavor. My favorites of the cold-pressed line were the Pink Lady and Beet Kombucha. While my favored of the Super Tea was the Sweet Thorn and Maca-Berry.
A major plus for me is that Health-Ade doesn’t add any extra sugar to their Kombucha. Before I found out about Health-Ade I can’t tell you how the number of times I picked up a bottle of ‘another companies’ kombucha and gasp at the high sugar content. Why add extra sugar to something that is already delicious on its own? It makes me so grateful that I can pick up a Health-Ade bottle, drink it all and not feel an ounce of guilt. Health-Ade keeps my family and I going and feeling great no matter if we are home or on the go. I highly recommend seeing where you can pick up some of this delicious kombucha for yourself (click here for store locator). Once you have Health-Ade you will never want to try another brand of kombucha again.
