WHO IS HIGH POINT KOMBUCHA?
High Point Kombucha is a sole proprietorship by me, Laura Valasakos, born out of a love for brewing and enjoying kombucha.
The name "High Point" lends itself to my enjoyment of being in the mountains and hiking, particularly to the top of a hill or peak. Getting to a high point and taking in the view is an especially great feeling, and it can be a grounding experience that can carry into daily life.
To feel small in the face of nature is an important perspective in life as well as with our health and what we eat.
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha is a beverage made by fermenting sweetened tea with a culture of beneficial yeast & bacteria, also known as a SCOBY. The finished brew tastes tangy-sweet, is lively and effervescent, and is a natural source of probiotics, organic acids, enzymes, and antioxidants. Kombucha contains a trace amount of alcohol as a byproduct of natural fermentation.
Anyone who is looking for a boost in digestion, immunity, and overall gut health can benefit from kombucha. Kombucha is an easy and tasty way to add more fermented foods to your diet. Looking for a substitute for soda, sugary juice, or alcoholic drinks? Kombucha is a perfect substitute, full of gut-friendly bacteria and fizz!
If you love to drink kombucha, it's also a great idea to learn to brew at home! If you'd like to learn more about this I am always available to help you get started.
the HIGH POINT MISSION
High Point makes 16oz bottles and fills growlers in many flavors, available at area farmers markets and small retailers. See "Locations" page for more information.
Kombucha should be real, healthful, tasty, and approachable.
The best kombucha is traditionally fermented with organic, loose-leaf tea and real cane sugar. The most amazing flavors are made with seasonal produce, grown locally in Pennsylvania.
Glass bottles are infinitely washable and re-usable.
