I’m so glad to have discovered these 3 flavours of certified organic locally produced kombucha, made with rooibos, by an environmentally conscious, ethical, Cape Town-based company called BREW.
BREW is a female-owned business, founded by model and entrepreneur Alex Glenday. Brew cares about the environment and is involved with various environmental protection organisations in South Africa such as surfpop, the beach co-op, greenpop etc.
The brewery has been built over one of the spring water aquifers in Cape Town that is sourced from Table Mountain. BREW reuses over 90% of their processing water and the rest is used to water the employee vegetable garden. Of the little waste that they produce, they compost, recycle, and reuse 98%.
the ingredients & the packaging
Kombucha is a sparkling drink made from fermented tea, and the tradition of making Kombucha is over 2000 years old. BREW Kombucha have 3 unique flavours of Kombucha: Original Rooibos, Buchu Babe & African Rose.
The BREW Kombucha ingredients are certified organic and contain no pesticides. At the moment they source the organic ingredients locally and abroad, with the goal of ultimately sourcing more ingredients locally. BREW kombucha is made with cut-green certified organic sugarcane & natural Cape spring water and is brewed using antioxidant-rich rooibos tea.
