Water Kefir!

*** Update: Wow! What a response to our pre-launch! We're sold out for the next few weeks and are suspending orders for the time being until we figure out how to scale up production so that the wait time is minimized for our customers. Will update shortly! ***

We've been asked for a while now about whether we produce water kefir, and now we are proud to announce that WE DO!

after 6 months of planning and flavour development, we narrowed down our range into a well-curated and tight selection of flavours!

But, 

What exactly is Water Kefir?

Water Kefir, also known by many as Tibiscos, Japanese Water Crystals or Snow Lotus etc., is a dairy-free probiotic drink made by fermenting sweetened solutions with water kefir cultures. The resultant brew is a bubbly and refreshing health drink containing a plethora of nutrients like a variety of enzymes and organic acids, and a range of B vitamins, vitamin K and folic acid and of course, beneficial gut-healing bacteria.

Water kefir provides fresh probiotics without the need for dairy or tea cultured products, such as kombucha or milk kefir. It may be an option for customers who prefer to go dairy-free.

Flavour Development

Passionfruit: We tried many different flavour combinations and it was an experience indeed. Some flavours were just sweet, some were just sour, musky. Finally, we managed to balance the sweet and tart in the form of passionfruit! To pack as much flavour as possible, we used a lot of pulp but we found that having a bunch of seeds while drinking makes a distracting mouthfeel, so we scaled back to just a few. What is cool about passionfruit is that it is full of phytonutrients such as carotenes and it also reduces signs of premature aging, lessens inflammation, improves sleeping habits, and eliminates asthma!

Goji-Date-Longan: The other flavour that made the cut is our new take on a traditional Singapore Chinese dessert tea (枸杞红枣龙眼茶)! Nicknamed GDL for short, Goji helps to nourish and moisten the lungs, liver and kidney. Red Dates help to regulate and tonify blood flow, detoxify the liver and maintain youthfulness. Longan helps to relieve stress, insomnia and forgetfulness and nourishes the skin!
