Our energy to heal and create change, comes from the whenua - the living growing earth with all its beauty; from te Ngahere (Forests) and the rivers and mountains - the special places where Papatuanuku still retains that gift of life that once flourished throughout all of Aotearoa.
As healers, the whenua (land) is our first patient. Keeping the whenua well will ensure the wellbeing of our future and resilience for generations to come. Right now, cultures all around the world can hear that the land is not just crying, she is calling us to action. She speaks to us through the birds, insects, plants and trees, the waters, the wind… Tiwaiwaka (the Fantail) is the voice for Papatuanuku, the messenger of kotahitanga (unification).
The coming of 2020 is a time of listening, listening to hear, and hearing to take action. This booklet is the beginning of the journey, reconnecting to the whenua, introducing participants to the world of Rongoa Maori, and the 6 Tiwaiwaka principles as a way to move forward in true unification.
Tiwaiwaka is out of the cage. She now flies freely. Where she flies to is beyond our control. We must fly with her.

What is Kombucha?
This ancient probitoic elixir is thought to have originated in Manchurian China over 2000 years ago, migrating across Asia into Russia and throughout eastern Europe. The claims to its probiotic health benefits restoring viatlity and promoting healing have preserved the elixir through generations and carried it around the world.
How much Kombucha should I drink per day?
If you have never had Kombucha before, we recommend starting slow - and going for around 200-250ml servings a day for the first few days. Our recommended dose is around 300mls per serving.
When will I receive my Kombucha bottles?
Order before midnight on Tuesdays, and if you are in Auckland you will receive on Thursday morning, and North + South Island on Fridays.
Due to stock availability, there may be a possibility of your order to take up to 2 weeks to arrive at your door. We appreciate your patience through this process.
What do I do with my empty bottles and boxes?
If you are in the Auckland area, you can return empty flattened boxes to us at the La Cigale French Markets. Here you can also refill used bottles, cutting out waste and making your bottles go another round.
You can also refill bottles at a growing list of Auckland Cafes and Organic Stores.
Is Kombucha safe for Pregnant/Breastfeeding women?
For safety purposes, we would recommend pregnant and breastfeeding women avoid drinking Kombucha at this point in time.
Is Kombucha Dairy Free/Gluten Free?
Kombucha comes with all of the probiotic benefits, but none of the dairy. OM Kombucha is 100% dairy & gluten free, meaning those who have dairy intolerances can still enjoy a dose of probiotics daily.
Does Kombucha contain alcohol?
Due to the natural fermentation process, there may be minute traces of alcohol present, but never more than 1%.
How long will my bottle last?
Kept in the fridge it will last up to 6 weeks. Kept out of the fridge, it will continue to ferment - producing a bubbly, and vinegary taste - not for the faint hearted.
Where else can I find your Kombucha?
You can find a list of our locations at local farmers markets and retail stores here.
