Gunpowder Green Tea Kombucha
Gunpowder green tea has been brewed in Zhejiang Province, China, since the Tang Dynasty, over a thousand years ago. While this tea is light, refreshing and wakes up the palate – there is NO gunpowder in it! The origins of the name are lost in the mists of time but the taste you will never forget.
New Leaf Kombucha is hand brewed right here in Auckland. Made with the finest organic ingredients and brewed in the traditional methods resulting in the absolute purest taste. And all made using only 4 simple ingredients.
Their focus is on the tea and the recipes are designed to allow the different organic teas from around the world to express themselves. The amazing colours and taste come from the organic teas they import directly from Asia.
Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that has been enjoyed in Asia for over 2,000 years. It is rich in probiotics, in other words: kombucha is good for your gut. As we learn more about gut health, we come full circle to the ancients who recognised the health benefits of fermented foods, such as kombucha.
At New Leaf they believe you can’t make good kombucha with bad tea so they import organic tea leaves directly from growers around the world. Being tea importers ensures the freshness and quality of the tea leaves they brew with. All the teas they use are certified organic or are organically grown with direct contact to the growers.
Derek and Ariel washed ashore in New Zealand after sailing here as a family from Seattle, USA, in 2015. Ariel studied at Wellpark College and got her diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition and Derek took a professional brewing course at America's oldest beer school, the Siebel Institute. Derek began brewing beer and Ariel began pushing him into brewing kombucha. He finally made the switch and started focussing all his attention on brewing the best organic kombucha.
Unlike supermarket kombucha, New Leaf never add any flavourings, colourings or preservatives. And they believe you can’t make good kombucha with bad tea, so they import organic tea leaves directly from growers around the world. Being tea importers ensures the freshness and quality of the tea leaves they brew with. All the teas they use are certified organic or are organically grown with direct contact to each farmer. As Derek says "Pesticides don’t know when to stop killing and we don’t want them in our kombucha!"
