THE STORY BEHIND THE BOTTLE
"One of my favorite childhood memories was when my brother and I would comb the beaches of Lake Huron looking for beach glass. The most prized color was cobalt blue, because it is among the least commonly found. On rare occasion we would find one...and it felt as if we had discovered a hidden treasure. Our blue bottle represents that very moment and the feelings that come with."
SWING TOP BOTTLES
Our bottles are the highest quality swing top style that are hand blown in Milan, Italy. The cobalt blue color is significant as it protects the kombucha from harmful UV light. This is vital as UV light kills bacteria, and we prevent damaging the integrity of the the good bacteria in our product. Furthermore, the use of swing top bottles prevent oxidation, thus preserving nutrients and probiotics during storage...while also keeping them at a nice and bubbly fermentation to enjoy for longer! With the help of our customers and retailers, we recycle our bottles to create less waste. The customers are asked to bring back their used KomBlu bottles, where we retrieve them, sanitize them, and fill them with more tasty "booch"!
CERTIFIED ORGANIC FAIR TRADE TEA
We don’t compromise on the quality of our tea. We have hand selected two of the best known variety black and green teas in each of their categories for our recipe. The tea is harvested in the mountains of Southern Yunnan of China, an area that has crisp, fresh, clean air. Additionally, we have chosen our prime varieties from a company that certifies the tea as free of toxins and pollutants, so you need not ever worry about our purity. Each small batch is handcrafted and monitored with care and precise measurements by our team when brewing. Our "quality trumps quantity" approach assures our customers a premium kombucha beverage.
PURIFIED REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER
Reverse osmosis refers to a treatment of water which forces water through specialized membranes and exerts a certain amount of pressure on it to remove foreign contaminants, solid substances, large molecules and minerals. This process makes the water free of cryptosporidium (a parasite often found in contaminated water), lead and sodium.
ORGANIC CANE SUGAR
Our recipe certified organic sugar cane is grown in Brazil. The cane juice is extracted, clarified, evaporated and crystallized on the same day it is harvested. Unlike refined white sugar, the sugar we use in each brew goes through minimal processing which results in the delicious all-natural taste.
ORGANIC & ALL-NATURAL STEVIA SWEETENER
Stevia, also called stevia rebaudiana, is a plant that is a member of the chrysanthemum family, a subgroup of the asteraceae (ragweed) family. Stevia is valued most for the sweet taste, which makes it capable of replacing sugar in a diet. Further, it has a very low calorific count pushing it in the ‘no-calorie’ food zone. The health benefits of stevia include its ability to aid in weight loss, lower blood pressure, reduce blood sugar, protect oral health, build strong bones, prevent certain forms of cancer and help avoid cavities.
100% NATURAL & ORGANIC FRUIT JUICE
Each juice we have chosen for all 7 of our flavors are 100% premium, fresh pressed, no fillers, preservative-free, non artificial, no sugar added, all natural and organic. These juices are delicious natural sources of anti-oxidants, phytochemical nutrients, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Our select juices are not from concentrate.
FOOD GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS
We use an organic wild orange ascensional oil base in several of our flavors. The health benefits of orange ascensional oil have the ability to treat inflammation, boost immunity, relax muscular and nervous spasms, alleviate anxiety, anger and depression, help in removal of excess gases and toxins, etc. These benefits of ingesting orange ascensional oil can be attributed to its properties as an anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, carminative, diuretic, tonic, sedative, and a cholagogic substance.
