What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a sparkling fermented tea that originated in Manchuria, China. Kombucha is fermented by combining tea and sugar with a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). The combination of tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast embarks on a long fermentation process which results in a naturally sparkling and refreshing drink. Kombucha can be enjoyed in its original form or flavoured with fruit and spices.

Kombucha is also notorious for being tied to gut health. But what does that really mean? Your gut is like a web, intricately jumbled and full of good bacteria that is personal to you. Because of this, how we each process different foods and drinks is individual. The gut specific benefits of Kombucha will vary from person to person. It may agree with you and if it does, you’ll feel alive and effervescent. Or, it may not agree with you at all. So, if you’re not used to drinking Kombucha, start with a little bit and see how it makes you feel.
