Where to find locally made kombucha in Toronto

The verdict is in: Toronto has gone crazy for kombucha. The fermented tea drink is great for detoxification, immune system boosting, and digestion and has the sweet, carbonated taste of an all-natural soda or happy hour mocktail. So naturally, we’ve rounded up the top places to pick up some that are all locally made in the 6. [Feature image: Antivice Juicery]

Anti Vice Juicery

1
853 College St, Toronto, ON M6H 1A1

This College Street juicery is known for its cute, café-like space, super-affordable juice cleanses, and protein-rich smoothies. But the Brockton Village spot also does made-in-house kombucha in flavours like chai orange, cherry, hibiscus and goji berry, and of course, original. They also do a made-in-house kefir water a la lime and turmeric, schizandra berry, and rosemary and pear.

Witches Brew Kombucha

2-160 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON M5T 3K7

Fresh, organic, and handcrafted, the kombucha at this shop (located right at the edge of Kensington Market) is the perfect pick-me-up for any day of the year. They offer unique flavours on tap like Embrace Me, a ginger- and hibiscus-infused black tea, and the appropriately named Divine Intervention, jasmine-infused green tea (and my personal favourite!). Served in either biodegradable cups or reusable glass bottles, both your body and the earth will thank you for stopping by.

Tutti Frutti

64 Kensington Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2K1

Though it be small, the selection of kombucha flavours is wide at this cute little health food store in the Kensington Market. They offer a variety of different brands, great for those who are feeling adventurous with their juice and are always on the go. I would definitely recommend the mango or peach kombucha from Tonica, a brand brewed and bottled in Toronto and – fun fact – featured in an episode of Dragon’s Den.

The Grow Op

4
222 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Z9

Don’t let the name fool you; the Grow Op is the perfect place to stop by for a light, healthy lunch. The kombucha is made in house and available on tap, great paired with their salads or sandwiches and with flavours changing every few weeks. Brunch lovers take note: The Grow Op also use their kombucha to make virgin cocktails.

Dandylion

5
1198 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1J6

This modern bistro is located right by the Gladstone Hotel and makes their kombucha in house, made to order. They only have one flavour, lemon, and it’s the very definition of fresh. It’s also a little tart with just the right amount of sweetness to balance it out. It’s also occasionally mixed with other ingredients or flavours to boost it up. It goes great with anything on the menu, the perfect non-alcoholic beverage for a sober night out.

Creeds Coffee Bar

6
390 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M5R 1V9

Spacious and modern, this Dupont-dwelling café is definitely an ideal place to chill if you’re with a group of friends. The kombucha is made and distributed by Toronto-based company Moore, which handcrafts each of their teas. Creed Coffee switches up the flavours every few days – so be sure to try them all – but they will usually have lavender vanilla and original kombucha (made from black tea) available.

Quantum Coffee

7
460 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1L7

A beautifully designed café with exposed brick, natural lighting, and lots of space, it’s a lovely spot for those looking for a quiet study area or lunch date on King Street. Their ginger kombucha has all the spicy goodness of natural ginger and incorporates both black and green tea in the blend. The kombucha is provided by Vams Culture a Toronto-based brewing company and according to the website, this particular blend can actually help clear congestion and cure hangovers (so definitely keep a few bottles close at hand for the morning after).

Though matcha green tea is best known for its extensive range of health benefits, it can also be used to make one heck of a treat. These tearooms, cafés and patisseries are expert in everything from the matcha latte to matcha macarons to matcha ice cream. Here are our top picks for matcha green tea infused desserts and beverages in Toronto. [Image credit: iStock.com/RyanJLane]
