“You’re a <gasp> vegan? So what do you eeeeaaattt?!?” – said to every vegan.
You don’t have to be vegan to drink our booch, but if you are vegan, go ahead and drink NessAlla Kombucha with confidence. Yes, our kombucha is raw, meaning we don’t filter or pasteurize our tea. We leave all the good stuff in there because that’s how kombucha is meant to be. In fact, the only good reason to filter booch is to make it look prettier on the shelves. We think our booch looks great just the way it is, floating bits of SCOBY and all. Did you know that a kombucha SCOBY found in a bottle is called a vegan oyster? Now you do! So, yeah, our kombucha is live, but since SCOBYs are cultures of bacterial yeast, it’s all good for vegans to consume. Except for you Level 5 vegans (the ones who don’t eat anything that casts a shadow (huh? see: The Simpsons Season 12 Episode 4, “Lisa the Treehugger”).
Bottom line: Kombucha is a vegan beverage, “oysters” and all.
