Sips of success
In pursuit of a better beverage, Tulsan Ali Zarrow got into the kombucha game.
As a health-conscious undergrad in Northern California, Tulsa native Ali Zarrow wasn’t satisfied with the selection of probiotic kombucha available in the local markets. The commercially produced, sediment-filled concoctions of tea, sugar, yeast and bacteria — with their vinegary odor — weren’t exactly pleasing to the palate.
In pursuit of a better beverage, Zarrow began fermenting her own, an experiment that proved more difficult than expected. Undaunted, she dreamed of producing a consistent, aesthetically pleasing product on a large scale. The result is Clearly Kombucha, a San Francisco-based beverage company with product distribution across the U.S.
“All of our products are light and refreshing and made with the highest-quality organic ingredients,” Zarrow says. “We aim to make fermented beverages fun and approachable while still giving you all of the health benefits.”
