What is Kombucha?
Kombucha, or fermented tea, has been around thousands of years. When properly brewed it is a delicious, slightly fizzy and refreshing soft drink that is low in sugar and naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids.
Kombucha is made using four simple ingredients: tea, water, sugar and a SCOBY: Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. During fermentation, the yeasts consume the sugar and produce alcohol, then the bacteria consume this alcohol to produce the acids that give kombucha its tangy flavour.
What are the health benefits of drinking kombucha?
Raw and unfiltered kombucha like ours is full of live cultures which support gut health and aid digestion.
Kombucha also naturally contains acetic acid, which is great for boosting energy and lowering blood sugar levels. As kombucha is brewed from tea, it is full of antioxidants.
