Health Ade Kombucha exists only to make the best tasting and highest quality kombucha you can buy, and pull out all the stops to ensure ours is the healthiest brew out there. This includes things like: flavoring only with cold-pressed farmers’ market seasonal produce, producing and fermenting 100% in glass, and engaging in all natural fermentation. With our kombucha, there is never any plastic, dye, concentrate, powder or mass-production included, and we think that makes all the difference.
