Our kombucha first started brewing in our home kitchen around five years back. Then to a rack at a balcony, to a corner of our restaurant; and now, to a new zip code to Matai. Kundo had stumbled upon this interesting fermented beverage on the internet and started reading on it. We got excited and ordered a SCOBY (this is what the kombucha mother is called) all the way from US of A through Ebay (remember that thing?!). It was not available at all in India back then. We started brewing 2 litre batches for our own consumption. We had just read about it back then and had no idea how it would taste. And when our first batch was ready, we had our first taste. It tasted great! And made us feel great too. We had given up drinking soft drinks for some time and I desperately needed something to fill the gap. This was it! Read more
Some time back we had a chat with the online publication, Roots and Leisure. We talked about how it all started, what drives us, etc..
How has your roots and upbringing inspired you?

A happening organised by Kekru. Featured poets, open mic, acoustic music with Tejas Yambem. It is actually a Happening above Forage. The rooftop of our building is a real cosy place with a great view, esp. at sunset. So we thought we’d bring it to life! We hope to host more such dos in the future now that we know how great the vibe is! All thanks to KokSamLai building for letting us use the space.
