Kombucha is a fermented drink and continues to breed healthy live cultures under normal circumstances. Upon receiving your kombucha drink, please store it upright in the refrigerator. Do not freeze. You may keep it at room temperature, yet take note that the taste will become more sour and vinegarish as it will continue to ferment.
If you wish to consume non-chilled kombucha, please remove the drink from the refrigerator and leave it on the table top until it reaches room temperature. Do not use hot water, microwave or heat as it contains live culture.
