Q: When did you first discover kombucha?

One of our good guys, Teemu, was living and working in New Zealand in 2016 where he discover kombucha. He soon began brewing kombucha to enjoy the living drink everyday. Upon returning to Finland Teemu introduced kombucha to Krister who is seriously nuts about tea. Soon after we carved out a master plan of our own kombucha brewery 🙂
