Why our Kombucha?

She is mysterious, she is nurturing, she is wellness, and she is powerful. 

Simply, HOTI Kombucha is an alternative to sugary drinks that often cause harm rather than wellness and nourishment. 

HOTI Kombucha is a raw and unpasteurised, and made from ingredients that contain no gluten or animal products and will have you converted to drinks that are designed to heal and nourish at every sip. 

Our Kombucha is wellness, kindness and love.  It is what we love and with one sip, she will have you in love with her too. 

Here at HOTI Kombucha we make real Kombucha using raw organic Bundaberg sugar and the highest quality loose leaf tea blends that are added to HOTI’s original culture and left to develop into an amazing bottle of wellness. 

It is said when traditionally prepared, Kombucha works to enrich the healthy gut bacteria by adding beneficial acids, yeast and probiotics. 

We know this, that’s why every batch of HOTI Kombucha is designed to be enjoyed, not as a tonic, but as a celebration of wellness and health. 

It is more than just Kombucha to us, she is life, she is physical and mental health, she is uplifting and to us, she is life changing. 

See how HOTI can do this for you. 

OUR

Creation Process

Using only organic loose-leaf tea, raw organic Bundaberg sugar, the union begins with the sugar and water which is gently converted to a glucose rich base to which the loose tea leaves are added to unfurl and slowly bring out their flavour and colour. 

Once cooled, it is added to our fermenters to which our mothers await their renewal and regeneration, to grow and create, to develop into what we have come to enoy.  The next phase is where the mystery commences, where the magic happens. 

Over the next 14 days, the unique Bundaberg climate assists our mothers work to alchemize and create, to provide life and give health in a way that only fermented drinks can. 

Once the cycle and the mystery of the fermentation has completed its first journey, the second journey commences. 

Our mothers are rested and the Kombucha then takes its next journey  to completeness through its second fermentation process. 

This is when our locally sourced and lovingly hand pressed jucies and healing herbs are added to infuse and transform into a powerfully hand-crafted refreshing drink. 

This is HOTI Kombucha.  This is what we do.  This is what we love to do. 

OUR ETHOS

& Values

We value Wellness, Sustainability and Customer Friendship.  So, everything we do leads us back to these 3 things.

Our own journey and commitment to wellness was where the creation of HOTI Kombucha manifested, where she was born and why she flows through to you. 

Without it, HOTI would not exist.  She represents our own salute to how we choose to take responsibility for our own health.  

Bundaberg is home to the famous Mon Repo Conservation Park, and to the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and has the most significant loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific Region. 

To do our bit to help protect these amazingly beautiful sea turtles, we choose to be plastic free as much as possible or to use eco-friendly plastic. 

Sea turtles are affected by plastic during every stage of their life.  Hundreds of thousands of sea turtles, whales and other marine mammals and more than 1 million sea birds die each year from ocean pollution and ingestion or entanglement in marine debris. 

Supporting us will also support the minimisation of plastic in our sea.

Through the creation of HOTI Kombucha, the most amazing value in life has transformed – friendship. 

Through our journey of creating this rich elixir, we have whole heartedly connected with customer and community and for us this brings joy and connection. 

Our Customers are not just customers, they represent our own alignment to our physical and mental health. 

Our customers are friendship, strength and family and sit firmly in our vision when creating this powerful drink.

What started as a hobby in my quest for wellness in 2016, has now transformed into a flourishing business.  I founded HOTI Kombucha to meet a gap in the health beverage market in the Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Wide Bay region for those looking for a healthier alternative.  Fuelled by my passion and purpose to do what I love, HOTI Kombucha has since become the Kombucha of choice for locals. 

HOTI is the first commercially produced Kombucha in the Wide Bay and Bundaberg Region and as a recent winner of the Bundaberg Region Chamber of Commerce 2019 Business Excellence Awards, I’m extremely proud of my achievements.  HOTI Kombucha is now a regular draw card for tourists and I’m thrilled to partner with The Windmill Cafe Bargara who were awarded  the Queensland Tourism Resturants and Catering Services  Award.

I have also been considered a success story with the Females in Food Organisation, inspiring other women in food and drink and was also listed in the top 50 businesses in the Inside Small Business Magazine.  HOTI Kombucha is also a proud member of Kombucha Brewers International, a non-profit trade association established to support commercial brewers, set standards in brewing and protect the industry.

Got my first bottle of HOTI Kombucha at Winterfeast Markets today. Best tasting ever!! And the Limoncello flavour makes me think I’m drinking something more sinful than healthy. Thank You ❤❤❤

I was introduced to Helen’s lucious liquid in December…oh my did I think all my Christmas’s had come at once. From that day forward I can now say I am a kombchaholic, not just any Kombucha, all of Helen’s delectable flavours are to die for. When I place my order it’s better than a box of chocolates, you never know what flavours you will get and have the added bonus of being super good for you. Keep up the awesome work Helen…xx

It’s NEVER been more important to support local businesses✅✅✅
.
With 2 locally produced kombucha brands now available in Bundaberg there is no reason to not buy or stock locally crafted, family owned companies.
.
I personally know of 2 small kombucha brands in NSW that have either closed or massively scaled back because they can’t compete with large brands stocked in the majors😥
.
Don’t let this happen in Bundy! Show HOTI kombucha and @bundaberg_ferments some love.
.
Good news……our beautiful Blood Orange is available now at @olsenscornerfoodworks 🍊❤️🍊
.
Have a great Thursday😍
