Kombucha is a slightly effervescent health elixir made from tea and living cultures. Theonista kombucha is a tangy & potent brew, much like the kind you’d find in North America or the UK. This is considerably less sweet and has a much stronger flavour than most other South African brands.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

Like other fermented foods, kombucha is extremely rich in probiotics and active enzymes. There are myriad purported health benefits of kombucha, from improved digestion and metabolism to boosted immunity, healthier skin and hair, and liver detoxification. Such anecdotal claims have been reported for thousands of years by kombucha enthusiasts, and there is a growing body of scientific evidence that supports the health properties of kombucha specifically (not to mention an abundance of existing evidence in favour of fermented foods).

Because of its potency, it is recommend that pregnant women and children under 12 seek guidance from a health professional before consuming kombucha. There is no established recommended daily intake amount; that said, it is suggested that 250-500ml (half a bottle to one full bottle) per day is a good start.

A NOTE ON SUGAR: Many people who are trying to reduce their sugar consumption have expressed concern over the fact that kombucha is made with sugar, but you simply can’t make kombucha without it. The sugar is added to feed the SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast), not you. Besides noting that Theonista uses raw unrefined evaporated cane juice, it is important to understand that that sugar is an essential component of the fermentation process and is converted from sucrose into a variety of other compounds which make kombucha what it is. Sugar serves as food for the SCOBY, the mother culture that is responsible for converting the starter liquid to the final product. The residual sugar left in kombucha after the scoby “digests” it varies from batch to batch but at the end of the fermentation process, only a trace of the initial sugar remains (less than orange or carrot juice, for comparison). A shorter fermentation time yields a much sweeter, higher sugar product.

Small clumps or sediment may form over time ; this is a sign of raw, living kombucha. Strain if desired or shake gently to mix but be very careful when opening the bottle as kombucha is naturally carbonated and vigorous shaking may cause leakage.


Theonista raw kombucha (filtered water, organic Rooibos, non-GMO unbleached evaporated Cane Sugar, active cultures), fresh pressed Ginger. Absolutely no added colors, flavors, or preservatives.

In my opinion, Theonista Ginger & Rooibos Kombucha is the best kombucha on the market. I love that it is made with simple, natural ingredients and free from added colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Can't go wrong with Theonista - always a favourite!
09/12/2022, By Boitumelo
Loved this brand. Not too much sugar. I'll definitely be buying it again.
24/08/2022, By Natalie
For a vegan that needs to get some beneficial nutrients for my gut, this delicious kombucha has all the probiotics I need. I enjoy this kombucha as its not too sweet, not too fizzy and oh-so south african, especially as Theonista is a woman-founded business!

Great taste!

13/01/2021, By Eilidh
This one is our favourite flavour! I love that it is rooibos based as I can't take caffeine. Our daughters love it too.

I much prefer this one to the other flavours. I think the Ginger just gives it such a nice taste. I enjoyed it.
03/12/2020, By Jane
I am not a great fan of ginger so it’s not my favourite mixture but I still love its bubbles and that it’s not too sweet.
28/10/2020, By T
Lovely product

I love the ginger taste!
03/08/2019, By Catherine
Was given this as an extra in my last order (thank you - what a treat!) It’s filling and it somehow makes your mouth feel cleaner, while your gut gets cleansed. What a winner!
06/12/2018, By Liezl
Pricey but worth it. Great taste!
03/12/2018, By Mo
Can't resist a tall glass filled with ice and this Ginger and Rooibos combo - best summers day treat
03/12/2018, By Anne
I add stevia to it and it tastes just like ginger beer.
27/09/2018, By Ilse
Great kombucha, great brand. Theonista kombucha is nice and fizzy. Great flavours.
18/09/2018, By Jane
I love this, it's so refreshing
17/09/2018, By Ireeze
I have already recommended this...... love the ginger hit
07/07/2018, By Hanlie
It's so good!
06/07/2018, By Samantha
Best brand on the market
13/06/2018, By Roxanne
Preferred the other flavours, and in hindsight I wish they would've used glass bottles instead
05/06/2018, By Hanlie
I just love the ginger and rooibos combination!
04/06/2018, By Hanlie
A winner!
30/05/2018, By Ruth
I find the ginger & rooibos a refreshing and pleasant drink but the ginger has the edge (but I love ginger!). Kombucha drinks are amazing for my system and would highly recommend these products.
23/04/2018, By Jenny
I was interested to taste this flavour as I make my own fermented ginger beer. This drink has a pleasant fizz and taste. I found the flavour mild but probably because I'm used to a stronger ginger taste and due to the tea.

16/04/2018, By Sarah
Well, the first sip was AMAZING! But second lost it's fizz. How is that possible? I couldn't finish it because the fizz was gone. Maybe it was a bit old?
04/03/2018, By Stephnie
Delicious. I really love the flavour - this will be a regular on my shopping list from now on!
23/02/2018, By Susan
Great taste. Good for health, far exceeds unhealthy popular fizzy, sugary (or DIET) drinks so widely consumed. Yes price is an issue, it does curb the urge to open another bottle.
22/02/2018, By Kea Leping
It wasn't as strong as the description claimed. Tasted like mildly flavoured sparkling water. But still refreshing nonetheless. Prefer the Ginger Mate flavour
20/02/2018, By Rai
What an amazing product- great flavours; they all have the right amount of sweetness and fizz; who would have thought being healthy could be so tasty
05/02/2018, By Fria
Theonista is one of the best kombucha brands currently made in South Africa. Every single flavour is fantastic and they have a huge range!
01/02/2018, By Eroets
This is a perfect Kombucha, well balanced sweetness, mild ginger and rooibos taste... only too expensive to buy on a regular basis.
08/12/2017, By Karin
Love it!!
13/11/2017, By EVELYN
My only regret is not buying more. Amazing taste. Definitely sticking to this brand.
03/11/2017, By Alicia
Love that its not too sweet. The carbonation is quite strong but this is the best brand i have found in South Africa yet!

01/07/2017, By Ryder
The most delicious taste.
28/06/2017, By Deborah
This is my first foray into kombucha so I was a bit nervous but it tastes similar to homemade ginger beer. I enjoyed the taste and have not had gut flora issues since drinking it.
20/06/2017, By Roxanne
Love the strong ginger flavour
03/06/2017, By Nora
I loved this kombucha. It is refreshing and the hint of ginger is lovely. Would definitely recommend it.
11/09/2016, By Asha
This was the first kombucha Ive ever purchased. I was initially a bit wary about the taste so just bought one bottle. I was blown away at the flavour and was immediately disappointed that I didn buy more! Its refreshing, tasty and the perfect alternative to
egular fizzy drinks
23/08/2016, By Trevor

20/11/2015, By ali
really raw and really yum
18/11/2015, By Melanie C
Could (and probably should!!) drink this every day!
18/11/2015, By Warren
I absolutely LOVE this entire product range. Being someone that has suffered from health issues and turned to nutrition for the answer, I love how Theonista has created an amazing range of delicious flavours, is by far the biggest kombucha brand in SA, but still retains all their authenticity and bottles everything by hand the old school craft way. Thanks for the great products and keep up the great work!
14/04/2015, By Helen
I wasn expecting to enjoy this as a lot of people told me Kombucha was vile. I love it, but I guess it is one of those things you either love or hate. It is on the pricey side...but will definitely through one into my basket when ordering in future.
09/09/2014, By Astrid
This is delicious! Was a bit concerned (all good things, isn always delicious). I am on a detox for 21 days, think this will help a lot.
20/05/2011, By KT
This really works! I used it for 2 days and immediately felt less bloated. Its just a bit pricey to use every day.
