Frequently Asked Questions
What is kombucha?
Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that is made by combining sweetened tea with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (also known as a SCOBY). The SCOBY feeds on the sugar in the tea, producing a slightly effervescent, tangy, and slightly sweet beverage that is popular for its potential health benefits. Learn more about how we brew our kombucha in the About Kombucha page.
What are the health benefits of drinking kombucha?
The live bacteria and yeast in kombucha can provide probiotic benefits that help improve gut health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract, aiding in digestion and supporting the immune system. Kombucha is also rich in antioxidants, which help neutralise harmful free radicals in the body and reduce oxidative stress.
How often can I drink kombucha?
The optimal frequency of consuming kombucha depends on various factors such as individual health status, tolerance level, and personal preferences. As a general guideline, consume it with meals in smaller amounts first to aid digestion.
Is kombucha safe for everyone?
People with weakened immune systems, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and individuals with certain medical conditions should consult their healthcare provider before consuming kombucha.
How do I store my kombucha?
We recommend that you store your bottles upright in the fridge upon receiving them. Only open them at point of consumption to maintain the fizziness.
What is the shelf life of Châteaux kombucha?

What is the jelly floating in the kombucha?
As kombucha is a living tea, the living cultures in it continue to grow. So you may occasionally find jelly-like substance in your kombucha. This is the condensed form of probiotic cultures which is rich in probiotics and safe for consumption. If you do not like the texture, simply sieve it out before drinking.
What is the cloudy stuff at the bottom?
It’s called “the mother,” and it contains raw enzymes and gut-friendly bacteria. You can give the bottle a gentle swirl to mix it up before you drink. Alternatively, if you prefer not to consume it, you can let it settle before you pour. Do not shake before pouring!
