there was a captain. A true sea wolf passionate for sailing the oceans to explore the riches that each place had to offer, to learn different cultures and willing to share them with all humanity.
He was strong, smart, and determined in commanding his ship and crew, knowing their value and importance to meet objectives and reach success. Captain knew the importance of a team and knew that only together they would reach farther. For this reason, he took care of each sailor as a father takes care of his own son.
The sea life was hard. The strong winds, the uncertain seas, the hard work that weakened the crew was a constant concern for the captain. One day, during one of his journeys, our captain heard about a legendary, fermented drink, rich in antioxidants, with unique medicinal properties that could promote physical health and mental recovery, a booster for the body’s natural defenses. “It’s from the east and it’s a real catalyst for health” – he heard! This was exactly what he needed to ensure his crew the strength and the health defenses to keep on sailing and face new adventures.
He just had to know more about this elixir, prove its trueness and share it with the world. So he began a long journey to the eastern seas to pursue this fermented drink.
Reaching the east there were many who denied him access to information he intended, but an old samurai, moved by their kindness and generosity shared with him all his knowledge about the legendary drink. It was called Kombucha. He taught him the secret recipe along with the secret ingredients.
Captain could now make Kombucha and share its benefits with his crew and with the rest of the world. He returned to the ship with this priceless treasure and left in search of a new land. He needed a place with a pure environment, a place where he could produce an even more powerful Kombucha and he found it in Western Europe. A magical, by the sea region, known as littoral Alentejo.
Now with pure land enriched and flavored by the sea winds he started refining the Kombucha recipe, trying new mixes, new flavors, ones with even more benefits. The result, delicious multi flavored Kombucha, suitable for all kinds of people and tastes.
The word spread and this once secret, exclusive legendary fermented drink was now available for everyone. The once captain of the seas was now known as Captain Kombucha, and his fermented drink became legendary.
