Trust your gut


Kia ora! We are a family of six living in Mount Maunganui New Zealand. The journey of creating our Kombucha started in 2014. Our youngest child Waereti-Rose (pictured right) was just a few months old when she developed an acute problem related to gut health. Homemade Kombucha was added to the whānau (family) health regime which provided a lot of positive support for our daughters digestive issues. Over the years our special Kombucha recipe has been fine-tuned to wow even the fussiest of critics- KIDS! Now 1000’s of guts have been blessed with the benefits of our ‘friendly fizz’.  This drink is palatable, uniquely refreshing and is known as a functional beverage - meaning it provides you with health benefits.  At Papa’s Kombucha we have a saying - ‘trust your gut’ which actually means LOVE YOUR GUT by giving it a fermented & functional beverage that is beneficial for your gut and the whole family!


For the past 20+ years we have worked in Health/ Tertiary Education and we feel passionate about sharing our knowledge about Gut Health with other families. The gut plays a critical part in your overall health for multiple reasons - the saying goes, “All ill-health leads to the gut.” The gut is a brain and when we nurture its environment with healthy food & drink options it can function optimally which will keep you and the kids healthier. Your whole family can FEEL more energized, more positive, more focused & happier! We all want that for our kids - so we are here to help you thrive as a whānau (family) with our functional drink that gives you a FRIENDLY FIZZ option.

Na te whānau mo te whānau

From our family to your family
