The popular vegan restaurant’s recent collaboration with JARR Kombucha will see guests in a one-off masterclass to learn everything they need to know about the nutrient rich drink and how to make it in the comfort of their own home. Guests will leave with their very own kit to start brewing immediately.

Prepare to learn about JARR’s story, as well as the history and science behind the drink. A Q&A with the founders of JARR, as well as a tea discussion with Joe from Joe’s Tea Co will leave you feeling like you can start your own Kombucha business.
