live fermented drink
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a live fermented drink. Lightly fizzy, refreshing, a natural probiotic which brings many health properties. Also known as the ‘Elixir of Life’.
It is made by brewing green tea with raw cane sugar before combining with the most important ingredient the Kombucha Culture (or SCOBY). The fermentation breaks down the sugars into organic acids, vitamins and ‘good bacteria’ essential for a healthy gut.
Kombucha tea offers benefits similar to a good probiotic supplement. Like other fermented foods, it is rich in probiotics and helps the body maintain a healthy community of microorganisms in the gut. The gut is often forgotten as it cannot be seen, yet it is the body’s engine for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Probiotics are linked with strengthening the immune system, improving digestion, fighting infections, liver health & mental health.
Our Kombucha is made using raw organic cane sugar, raw organic green tea and filtered water. Natural ingredients are infused during the second fermentation process to create delicious flavours of Kombucha. Only natural ingredients are used i.e. fresh pressed juice, herbs, spices. No artificial flavourings at all. Only what is listed goes in.
Over the last decade Kombucha has been rediscovered and its popularity increased, you can even find different types on supermarket shelves. Always check the ingredients list! You have not tasted real Kombucha until you have tried our Kombucha.

How much Kombucha to drink
If you are new to Kombucha you may prefer to start with a small amount (120ml) first day. If you like it then increase next day. For maximum benefit a 250ml can be drunk daily.
Store in refrigerator
Kombucha is a living drink so it must be stored in the fridge. If left in warm temperature, the fermentation will continue.
You can store the open bottle in the fridge and use as necessary. Due to the acidity and presence of good bacteria, it can be safely stored in the fridge for many months.
When to drink Kombucha
Ideally you should drink Kombucha around midday or early evening (rather than morning). The good probiotics help with balancing good bacteria in the gut and helps with digestion.
Drinking on an empty stomach is the best way to maximise the potency of the probiotics.
If pregnant or breast feeding drinking Kombucha is not advised.
