Pure water is essential for creating awesome kombucha. Yugen uses fresh groundwater, which is filtered with reverse osmosis to take out any impurities. After that, a bunch of minerals are added back to create perfectly balanced pure brewing water.
Yugen uses a mix of premium organic Green Sencha (China) and organic Black Assam (India) to create their different flavours. The tea is carefully steeped for just the right time at just the right temperature to create a balanced base for fermentation.
Yugen uses organic cane sugar as food for our fermentation. The majority of this sugar is consumed by yeast and bacteria during the fermentation. In total our kombucha contains 3,8gram of sugar per 100ml. This is about 2 to 3 times less than a traditional soda.
Kombucha is a natural tea drink, fermented with the help of a scoby. Unlike other brands, we brew each batch from scratch and never use concentrates or dilution. That way we guarantee a delicious kombucha that’s alive & kicking.
Every flavour is loaded with pure organic fruit juice. Yugen never uses concentrated juice but always searches for the freshest and highest quality juice on the market. Whenever possible we press the fruit just before we mix it with our booch.
Every flavour packs 4 different herbs. The herbs are carefully sourced for their flavour and aroma profiles, but also for their added benefits. Yugen never uses aroma’s (natural or artificial) but always starts from pure dried leaves to create extravagant flavours.
Yugen is packed in cans, bottles and kegs. Every can or bottle is illustrated by a local artist. The design reflects their interpretation of the Japanese concept “Yugen”. The amber colored glass and opaque cans protect the living beneficial organisms from harmful UV-light, keeping the full-strength of this raw brew as fresh as possible.

Yugen is not your average kombucha. It’s brewed to perfection using only the highest quality juices and herbs. At Yugen, we don't use any aroma's, preservatives or other nonsense. Our kombucha is unpasteurized, so you benefit from the 3 billion living organisms. At Yugen we care. Our brand is sustainable. We also donate 2 cents per Yugen to our charity which allows us to organise and support sustainable projects. We support up-and-coming artists and partner in art, music and social events.
