In 2008, the students and teachers of Breath and Body Yoga were introduced to a locally brewed kombucha and instantly became fans of the ancient elixir. When the local brewer stopped production, a group of yogis decided to fill the void, and Kosmic Kombucha was born. Kosmic Kombucha is brewed in Austin with organic ingredients and fresh produce from local markets. Previously, Kosmic was available only in glass half-gallon jugs. Wheatsville now offers Kosmic Kombucha in single serve 16oz bottles, in a variety of unique new flavors!
Ginger & Mary Ann soothes, with organic ginger and a touch of maple; Black Magic gets its mysterious tint from blackberries, raspberries, ginger and spirulina; Purple Haze is a fruit-herbal-floral blend of grape juice, lime, cinnamon, lavender and clove; and the Salty Dog is a citrusy punch of grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime, with a light kiss of sea salt.

Blending organic and raw kombucha, chia seeds, and juice, GT’s Black Chia and Green Chia are two fun new additions to the wildly popular line of chia beverages. The chia seeds add natural thickness and chew to the drinks and also manage (with the help of the juice) to cut the fermented flavor substantially. The result is several layers of flavor, including tart, sweet, and vinegar. Functionally, the drinks have all of the probiotics and enzymes found in other GT’s products, plus added omega-3, fiber, and antioxidants from the chia seeds. GT's Black Chia takes its name from an infusion of black currant juice, while the Green Chia gets its emerald hue from a healthful dose of chlorophyll. 16oz, Reg. $2.99
