Kombucha is fermented tea, brewed using a blend of tea, water, sugar and a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). These ingredients are left to ferment in a warm environment for a period of time leaving you with a delicious, refreshing and nutrient dense soft drink.
According to legend, kombucha was first brewed around 220 BC in China during the Qin Dynasty as a ‘longevity elixir.’ It then worked its way across Asia to parts of Russia and Eastern Europe where it was common as a home brewed soft drink and health tonic until the late 1980’s.
In recent years it’s become a staple beverage in the Western wellness world where it is now brewed as a complex soft drink / alcohol alternative, and also as an innovative cocktail mixer.
It takes only six easy steps to enjoy your own booch.
