Win 30 days of
Beyond Kombucha for one
inspired haiku

One of my favorite discoveries from the travels on my current food path is fermented foods and beverages. I’ve found that I love all sorts of lacto fermented comestibles – sauerkraut, fermented beets, kimchi, kefir, yogurt. I also love kombucha, a fermented sweet tea with origins in China. It’s got a sweetness and tang, all wrapped up in a sparkly beverage.

I’ve made kombucha before, but got out of the practice, since I have some excellent sources of prepared kombucha. One of these sources is Beyond Kombucha, a company based right here in Astoria. I’m particularly fond of their hibiscus flavor, which has a nice fruitiness to it.

I was recently contacted by the people at Beyond Kombucha, who alerted me to haiku contest they’re running. Here’s more info:

Beyond Kombucha, in conjunction with the national 30 Day Drink Kombucha Challenge, is running a haiku contest starting tomorrow morning, Tuesday January 3rd and going through Friday, January 6th. Contestants can log onto our Facebook pageΒ to submit an original haiku on the theme of kombucha or tea.

The Grand Prize winner receives a 30 day supply of Beyond Kombucha (shipped anywhere in continental US) and a copy of their poem hand-written by label artist Christine Theofilatos. Runners up receive their poem written by Christine and a copy of our favorite office reading, “The Tea Enthusiasts Handbook” by lifetime tea-lovers Mary Lou and Robert Heiss. Winning poems may be featured on our new website or labels!

Such great prizes! So, put on your haiku helmet and find the perfect 5-7-5 as your entry. Please feel free to share your haiku masterpiece here in the comments, too (just for fun, no prizes are coming from my end).

Good luck, everyone!

Wow, that’s an “old” label… Where’s that from?

It’s from a photo I took back in April from a bottle I think you gave me, Spiro! I ended up buying the hibiscus flavor most often as a result. πŸ™‚

Love it, though. We’ve got to take more artsy angles our bottles, man!

Okay, I’m going to contribute a haiku while I’m here about WAPF.

Very nice! Liz, I’ll bring by a little jar of something I preserved over the summer.
