As delicious as it is healing, this infused water kefir combines the refreshing flavour of fresh lemon juice with the calming properties of lavender. The flavour is unique and beautiful—sweet with floral notes. It’s bubbly, tart and has the distinct flavour that only lavender buds can bestow upon a beverage.

NEED TO KNOW:
Lavender can quickly become very overbearing in a beverage. It is best to start with a small amount and add more on a second batch if you like.
Refrigerate immediately. It can last there for up to 8 weeks before it turns to vinegar.
