What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage, that is made from a mixture of tea, sugar, and SCOBY; also known as a starter culture, which is made up of bacteria and yeast. It can be made using black, green, or white tea and can also have flavours added to it like apple, peach, rose and cinnamon to create different flavour variations.
It takes around 7-14 days to make and ferment before it can be enjoyed, and it becomes fizzy during its fermentation process. This leaves you with a tasty, bubbly drink that is rich in probiotics and beneficial acids. Kombucha has a unique flavour profile, but we like to think that its tart, slightly sweet, slightly sour and wickedly tangy. It is a super refreshing drink, and it can have different tastes depending on what flavours you add to it - making it fruity, floral, or herbal.
Where Did Kombucha Come From?
Kombucha is thought to have originated in China, around 220 BC where it was used as a natural remedy and is still used for this to this day! Its health benefits then spread to other parts of Asia, Europe, and the US and it's now enjoyed all across the world.
What are the Health Benefits Associated with Kombucha?
Kombucha has a huge number of health benefits making it the ideal drink to add to your diet. It's full of probiotics (from those SCOBYs that were added during the making of the Kombucha) which work to improve your gut health, digestion, and help with bloating, constipation, the absorption of nutrients and IBS.
It also boosts immunity as its rich in antioxidants and helps to protect our bodies from free radical damage. Kombucha also helps to reduce joint pain, flush out toxins and waste, and promotes heart health.
