Anyone seen GT's Organic Raw Kombucha bev in TO?

Anyone seen this in Toronto?

  1. I live in Windsor and can get it at my tiny organic specialty store. I would suggest calling places like Noah's Natural Foods, Ambrosia, The Big Carrot, Whole Foods and the like, or else call Live Organic Food Bar on Dupont (416) 515-2002 or Rawlicious (416) 551-3161 and ask if they know where to source it.

    You might want to consider searching Kombucha online. If you're adventurous, you can buy the kombucha fungus and ferment your own batch. From a single piece of kombucha, I believe you can make unlimited batches. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying bottles of the beverage for $4.00+ each.

      Very good tips thanks. I'll try the bottled stuff first b/f I venture to anything home made. Thankyou!

    2. Not sure what GT stands for but I buy "The Fairy's Tonic" brand at Noah's on Spadina and at Fiesta Farms, where they just started carrying it.

      1. UPDATE: I found this at St Lawrence Market on the first floor, a vegan food stand. Forget the name sorry

          They have G.T.'s Kombucha at the Noah's at Spadina & Bloor. In the 5 years since I started drinking it, I haven't seen it once anywhere in Toronto so this is a good sign. I like it more than the Fairy brand.

        2. Wakening up this thread ... any more locations (preferrably Bloor West Village area) for Kombucha (not necessarily GT;s)?

            McEwan carries it, as does Bruno's.

              sadly, not at the Bruno's in Etobicoke ...

          2. Kale at Yonge and Eglinton
