What is Kombucha?

Go on then.. what on earth is this stuff??

Kombucha is a fermented drink made from green tea, cane sugar and a live culture called a Kombucha ‘SCOBY’ (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). This colony grows on top of the beverage as it ferments, making Kombucha a very unique and tasty drink! These naturally occurring organic acids along with B vitamins, antioxidants, live bacteria and enzymes, have given Kombucha a well-deserved reputation for working wonders on the mind and body. We always use certified organic ingredients and keep our Kombucha raw and unpasteurised, we don't like our bottles to contain any nasties! At the end of the day, the more good stuff we put into our body, the more we get out of Life.

Kombucha is known for its healing properties, and many people are seeking out healthy and conscious choices today for food and drink. Whilst we care about our health and the planet, Kombucha can also be added as a mixer to your favourite alcoholic beverages! (Not forgetting that it's also an amazing hangover cure).

We brew our Kombucha with green tea for its antioxidant properties but it can be brewed with any type of tea you like. Other natural ingredients or juices can also be added to create variation and taste, although recently our Original green tea flavour was awarded 2 stars at the Great Taste Awards! If you manage to get hold of a SCOBY, experiment with making your own Kombucha - we would love to hear your stories!
