What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is the amazing fermented soft drink that we like to craft brew the good old fashioned way – we stick to the traditional Eastern recipe of Green Tea, raw cane sugar and a live culture called a ‘SCOBY’ or a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast, fermenting over a number of weeks, which creates the naturally occurring organic acids, vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes and good bacteria.
