What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented tea full of billions of gut friendly probiotics which is also naturally low in sugar.
Kombucha is made from water, tea leaves + aromatics, a natural sugar source (ie. cane sugar, honey, coconut sugar, etc.) and a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast).
After a short ferment, the yeast and bacteria consume all the sugar they desire, leaving the tea sparkling, slightly tart and full of organic-acids, vitamins and probiotic microbes.
Freshly brewed Kombucha is then a perfect base to steep whole fruits, roots and herbs, for an endless variety of possible flavours.

Benefits of Fermentation
Many moons before industrial food processing came along, fermentation was a common way to prepare and preserve much of our food and drink. Kombucha, Yogurt, Kimchi, Chocolate, Cheese and many more favourites are all fermented foods!
Fermented foods supply our bodies with natural ratios of probiotic species, organic-acids and vitamins. All the while lowering sugars and increasing the accessibility of the nutrients in our food.
It's only now, with our microscopes out, that we are beginning to understand the importance of consuming these 'natural brews' and the positive effects they have on the body.
