The Journey

Growing up in Hawkes Bay my parents ensured that my brother and I always lived a reasonably healthy and active lifestyle. I've spent most of my life on the field, on the court or in the gym. However like most maori kids was brought up on the good ole fizzy drinks, the past 10 years I have felt the negative effects of the fizzy sugar in my diet. I am a husband and father of four children but found that juggling work and family was a battle. I was constantly lacking in energy and becoming prone to sickness and despite regularly keeping active found it difficult to shift my gut.

Four years ago our family moved to Papamoa, it was here that I was introduced to Kombucha by one of the bros. That one dinner changed my life, he taught me everything that I needed to know to get started with my first batch and its been a roller coaster ever since. 

Kombucha has changed my life, I drink it on the job - every day, and I've noticed so many changes in my life. Physically my energy has increased, my weight no longer fluctuates I barely have a gut, my cravings for sugar are minimal. Spiritually I have found more time to ground myself and seek to meditate daily. Mentally my mind feels clearer and overall my outlook on life is positive. Kombucha has become a real passion, I have spent so many late nights reading, researching testing and refining my brews in order to provide the best product possible. The most satisfaction I get is being able to share my brews, my kids love it, and Im a constant supplier to my whanau and friends.

For me its about putting that roa goodness into your life.
