Hong Kong-made non-alcoholic drinks
1. Kuppa Kombucha
This low-sugar, probiotic drink can be enjoyed by just about anyone! Kuppa Kombucha ferments green tea with priming sugar, cultures of bacteria & yeast, and cold pressed juice made from real fruit with balanced acidity. They currently come in three flavours; original, lychee and ginger, and strawberry and Szechuan pepper (for that spicy kick!) and honestly, they’re all worth hyping about. The drinks are a good immune booster and all of their packaging is 100% biodegradable. So yes, we can’t decide what it is we love most about this brand!
2. Breathing Tea HK
Now for some quali-tea content, Breathing Tea HK’s kombucha are 100% natural and handcrafted and brewed with quality tea leaves. Currently, the two flavours are Dragon Pearl – where the pearls are hand-rolled and made from silver needle green tea leaves and Jasmine flower, and Tieguanyin – a type of oolong. Plus, when you make your purchase, don’t throw away the bottles just yet, you can return five bottles to get one free bottle of tea. Plus plus, for every purchase made, 10% goes to Drops of Life and One Tree Planted.
3. Kushta HK
Day drinking? You mean Kushta HK right? This amazing brand produces kombucha (we promise you this entire list isn’t just kombucha), Jamu tonic, and coconut cashew mylk. They don’t fall short of flavours and boy, they don’t shy away from presenting whimsical mixtures. Pick from Japanese Sakura, Turkish Hibiscus, Chai Spice, Butterfly Pea Flower with Pineapple, Lavender Rose, and CBD booches (we want to capitalise on CBD but well it does its job on its own). Aside from drinks, they also make their own nut butters packed with goodness and cinnamon undertones.

We love their thoughtfully labelled cans that inform you exactly what you will be expecting with every sip. The hops teas come in four varieties; citra, mosaic, amarillo, and idaho7. Each one is paired with either black tea, oolong, earl grey, or white tea. They all also vary in taste and hops strength, all of which are labelled out front for your convenience.
