Launched in 2013, Golda Kombucha is an Atlanta-based business creating oak-aged kombucha tea. Hand-crafted in small batches, the tea is fermented in an American white oak barrel which enhances the health benefits and provides a unique tart flavor. Named after Golda Glasgow, the 92 year-old grandmother of brewer and creator, Melanie Wade, Golda Kombucha is made with the same recipe passed down through each generation. The tea is currently sold at many of the Atlanta Farmers' Markets ($4 off if you bring your Golda Growler) and can also be found at The Mercantile -- the only Kombucha growler site in Atlanta.
GK has grown tremendously and quickly and recently began a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their expansion - we hope you will take the time to check it out and support this incredible local business!
