Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is a fermented tea made with a kombucha starter culture and tea prepared with sugar.
WHAT DOES KOMBUCHA TASTE LIKE?
Kombucha offers a unique, complex and intriguing flavour profile- a little bit fruity, tangy, tarty and oaky all at the same time. Though these are the base characteristics of kombucha, different kombucha productions offer completely different styles/experiences, depending on the kind of tea, cultures, ingredients and methods used.
The Naked Bondi Kombucha brew is fresh, clean, elegant, beautifully balanced with a lively effervescence - a result of our choice of ingredients, our passion for precision and our raw approach. With a wide selection to choose from, there’s a flavour for everyone!
I'M NEW TO KOMBUCHA, HOW MUCH SHOULD I DRINK?
We recommend starting with one bottle per day. Everyone's gut biome is different and introducing more good bacteria should be done gradually. Active bacteria cultures may cause a slight reaction so start slow to allow for your system to adjust. Bottoms up!
I HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES, CAN I DRINK KOMBUCHA?
Well, that depends. If you're allergic to fruit or certain herbs, read the ingredients first, but our kombucha is GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, VEGAN and made with 100% raw, organic ingredients.
SHOULD I DRINK KOMBUCHA IF I HAVE HEALTH ISSUES?
Although kombucha offers an array of benefits to help you achieve optimal health, anyone with a compromised immune system should first talk to their health care professional before adding kombucha to their diet.
SHOULD MY CHILD DRINK KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is widely accepted as being safe for children but we do recommend starting off with small servings and diluting with water, especially for smaller children and toddlers. This will help to neutralise some of the natural acidity without losing the delicious flavour! If your child has a weak or compromised immune system, it is best to check with your GP or healthcare professional before giving them kombucha or any other fermented food, as it does contain live bacteria.
About Naked Bondi
DOES MY NAKED BONDI BOOCH NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?
Yes! Naked Bondi is living, raw kombucha so once bottled, it must be kept refrigerated at all times.
DOES NAKED BONDI CONTAIN DAIRY OR ANIMAL PRODUCTS?
No, our kombucha is 100% vegan and dairy free and made from organic tea, sugar, filtered water and a variety of natural fruits and botanicals.
WHY OAK BARRELS?
Brewing in oak barrels imparts a mellow, full-body to the kombucha which brings out unique flavours you can't get from other vessels. The kombucha culture also settles and grows inside the barrel's microscopic gaps and pores, and as the oak 'breathes' so too does the kombucha.
WHAT ARE THE FLOATY THINGS IN MY BOTTLE?
That is the holy mother of SCOBY! Don’t be put off as these are signs of a natural, healthy and living kombucha that is unpasteurised and full of the good stuff. Yes, they are safe to drink.
IS NAKED BONDI PASTEURISED?
Absolutely not! Our brew is raw and unpasteurised to maintain all of the natural, healthy, healing properties of real kombucha.
WHERE IS NAKED BONDI MADE?
Naked Bondi is crafted in our humble factory in Sydney, Australia!
