Inspired by the purity and grace of the Loon and the pristine lakes of Canadian cottage country, Loon Kombucha is unlike any other kombucha. Loon is cold-brewed in alkaline water for a taste that is Refreshingly Pure. Canada's Only Fairtrade kombucha, Loon stands with workers in developing countries for fair pay and sustainable farming practices.
Most kombuchas are made with chlorinated and demineralized city water. No filter can fix bad water. The flavours of the tea will not fully release because the chloramines will impede natural fermentation. The final product will taste bland and acidic. At Loon, our pristine water is sourced from our century-old country well. It is both alkaline and naturally mineralized, testing purer than most commercial spring waters! The result is are freshing beverage of astounding purity.
We steep our organic teas in water that is extremely cold, just above freezing. This softly releases the flavours of the tea leaves. As a result, we avoid the bitter taste typical of most hot-brewed teas, and consequently, hot-brewed kombuchas. This is why Loon Kombucha brews are so smooth and flavourful.
Loon Kombucha is now Certified Organic and Certified FairTrade! FairTrade Certification means that all our tea suppliers are regularly audited to ensure that the plantations are not using children or slaves to harvest teas. It is a big step and an important ethical choice for our brand. We do everything we can to produce the purest, most ethical kombucha on the market. Learn more at https://fairtrade.ca

From the beginning, all of our bottles have been refillable. You can clean and sanitize Loon Kombucha bottles and bring them into one of our refill stations or to one of our farmers’ market stalls for a reduced-price refill. We also carry a line of cans which are fully recyclable in a closed loop. While you can reuse the glass bottle, it will exist for centuries; the aluminum cans are fully repurposed into other cans.
Many mass-produced kombuchas are fermented in plastic vessels and even sold in plastic bottles. Acidic products like kombucha will cause the chemicals from these plastics to leech into the product. We brew in stainless steel tanks because purity is everything at Loon Kombucha. We will never compromise on the quality of our product and are committed to being a genuinely sustainable brand.
We brew our batches raw and unpasteurized (no kill step) to deliver natural, beneficial bacteria to your gut. Many mass-produced kombuchas are synthesized without scobies in third-party soda factories. We don’t do that kind of corner cutting. We use real scobies for an authentic fermentation so that you receive a complete and natural #guthealth boost.
