Our Story

Hi! I’m Selvi, the founder of Thrive Kombucha. I grew up in Chennai, India and currently reside in Sonoma wine country in California. Since I was a teenager I was interested in cooking great meals. Discovering better ingredients and methods of cooking is apart of who I am; improving my understanding of the culinary world and what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. Throughout the years I experimented with different ways in which I can share my knowledge and meals with others. I started Thrive Kombucha after being introduced to the beverage by my son, Krishna. I loved everything about it. It was full of flavor, felt good to drink and I noticed a positive effect in my health. I did my research and learned everything about this drink. It’s rich in probiotics, antioxidants, and boosts one’s immune system. During my frequent visits to Chennai I found that no one knew what kombucha was. That led me to start Thrive Kombucha in Chennai, my second home, to share this tangy, healthy beverage!
