Kombucha is a fermented tea having Chinese roots, but consumed regularly even today, by the Japanese.
Unlike normal teas, Kombucha due to its effervescent properties is made in extremely controlled conditions so that the naturally floating bacteria in the atmosphere do not interfere in the fermentation process.
Essentially addition of sugar to a Kombucha culture effects fermentation. Being a culture, yeast consumes the sugar and yields carbon-dioxide and alcohol (ethanol). The end result is that Bacteria consumes the ethanol and releases healthy amino acids and traces of Vitamins and minerals.
Pep Tea Brand Kombucha is organic and Sugar-free. Pep Tea is a part of Opera Foods which essentially means Kombucha Wholesale and Kombucha bulk can be acquired from Opera Foods. Organic kombucha is also available and comes in various versions eg. Lime and Ginger, Ginger, Mango, and Pomegranate Apple blends.
Yet another specialty of Pep Tea Is Organic Matcha Green tea coming in several useful pack sizes to suit the quantitative conditions of the consumer. Matcha is produced by grinding whole green tea to a fine powder. All kombucha brands can be sourced from Pep Tea’s parent company outlets at Opera – Wholesale Food Suppliers of Sydney & Brisbane.
Matcha tea is also a type of green tea in which the young tea leaves are ground down into a bright green powder. In a normal green tea, you are just getting a part of the nutrients as the rest are thrown away but with Matcha tea, you’re drinking the whole tea leaves.
You can drink Matcha tea with hot water as well as cold water and ice because with Matcha tea you can experience the same benefits in both the ways.
You can make a Hot Matcha Tea when you are drinking tea with a casual breakfast. The combination to make your perfect Matcha tea, you should keep the ratio as one teaspoon of our Peptea brand organic Matcha powder and six ounces of water. Boil the water first and then let it cool down a bit. Take one teaspoon of powder and mix it with two ounces of water first, then add the rest of the water into it. You can also add sweeteners to taste and be sure to stir the cup once the powder settles down at the bottom.
If you feel like drinking tea at any time of the day you can go for the Iced Matcha Tea. It is easier to make than the Hot Matcha Tea. The combination to make your perfect Iced Matcha tea, take one-half teaspoon of our Pep tea brand organic Matcha powder and mix it with few ounces of water to create a smooth paste. Add about 10-12 ounces of water, and sugar. Keep it in direct sunlight for about 15-20 minutes and add Ice and sweetener to enjoy your delicious cup of Iced Matcha Tea.

Pep Tea’s Australian Kombucha Reviewed on Landline, the ABC’s longstanding regional review TV program this week. The review or article, specifically features Jeff Low’s purpose built Hunter Valley kombucha brewery. This brewery contract manufactures most of the major brands of Australian Kombucha including Pep Tea organic kombucha.
Authentic Kombucha that is Raw & Alive with Real Probiotics.
Landline’s Kombucha review shows us around Jeff’s brewery and bottling plant during the manufacture of a run of the Pep Tea organic Mango flavor. The Landline interview with kombucha guru Jeff Low highlights the things that make the products he brews authentic kombucha that is a raw live product. Products brimming with real fermented tea kombucha probiotics that give the gut health benefits that kombucha drinkers are looking for.
Raw Not Pasturised
A real kombucha offers raw live healthy bacteria for gut health and is never Pasteurised.
Certified Organic & Shelf Stable
Jeff also emphasized that his products were carefully made only with natural and organic ingredients. Are certified by the Australian Certified Organic organization. Are scientifically perfected and filtered to make them low sediment and Shelf Stable so that they need no refrigeration until opened. Shelf stable is an important consideration for retailers. Shelf Stable means products like Pep Tea Organic Kombucha only takes up 4 lines (4 flavors) of valuable display fridge space. This is because the rest of the carton can go in a storeroom, not needing refrigeration.
Quite simply Pep Tea’s Organic kombuchas in the four most popular flavors, are the best a kombucha can be.
Here is the story of Australian Kombucha Reviewed on Landline.
Australian Kombucha Reviewed on Landline:-
Call for Regulation of the Kombucha production industry.
Along with real kombucha manufacturer Jeff Low, Pep Tea would like to call for regulation of the industry. Mainly to stop other players from offering products that are not true kombucha products or have probiotics added to them after the fact and so are not a true kombucha product. Another clear example is where a law suit was filed in the US against KeVita, owned by PepsiCo who were pasteurizing the product. Pasteurization is a process by which bacteria in food is killed by applying heat. Whereas the desirable health benefit of a Kombucha is the healthy bacteria enhanced through the fermentation process. Other cases have been brought in the USA where the low sugar content of kombucha products have been exaggerated.
NB: Pep Tea is a division of Opera Foods. Retailers and distributors seeking Organic Shelf Stable kombucha are invited to register for Wholesale access on Opera Foods website. Opera Foods offers gourmet and organic brands that are not offered in the major supermarkets to discerning food retailers and distributors around Australia.
