The ready-to-drink tea category is getting a jolt this month with the launch of Brew Dr. Kombucha Uplift. The new brew has 130 mg of natural caffeine per 414-mL bottle. To compare, the company’s traditional kombucha contains less than 15 mg of caffeine per bottle–about the same as a decaf cup of coffee, it says. Uplift is the first high-caffeine kombucha to market in Canada, according to the company, which describes it as “a probiotic pick-me-up with a satisfying flavour reminiscent of traditional iced tea.” Uplift Caffeinated features a heavy hit of yerba mate, guayusa and green tea.
