What is Kombucha?

Cans are infinitely recyclable and much lighter, resulting in the use of lighter packaging materials which saves fossil fuels during transportation. Moreover, cans offer protection to the living microorganisms in our products by shielding them from harmful UV light.

Should I be concerned about BPA in the cans?

Our cans are lined so that kombucha never comes in contact with the aluminum.  We use a BPA-Non Intent (BPA-NI) liner made by Ball Corporation which is the highest standard in terms of avoiding BPA in plastic. BPA-Ni is compliant with California Proposition 65 requirements.

We ship all of our products with 90+ days of shelf life.

How long can you leave a can of Kombucha open and still drink it?

If a can is unopened on the counter, you should have up to 4 hours before you'll notice any flavor change. You may notice some differences in flavor after that, and you will experience a stronger change in flavor after 48 hours if unrefrigerated.  If a can is left open and put in the refrigerator, it will go flat within a few hours but the flavors will change less over time.  The alcohol content will not change if left unrefrigerated for up to 48 hours.  We always recommend drinking Rowdy chilled for maximum flavor.

I bought a Rowdy Mermaid that tastes different than usual. What should I do?

All Rowdy Mermaid products are craft fermented using seasonal teas and botanicals and some fluctuation is to be expected. However, if you feel the flavor is outside the normal range of fluctuation please forward your feedback to info@rowdymermaid.com. Please include the place of purchase, the flavor and the best by date (located on the bottom of the can) so that we can perform internal research.

Holy Basil is another calming adaptogen native to southeast Asia. Holy Basil is thought to have anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory properties.
