You may have heard of kombucha, a fermented tea drink, but did you know that it has been around for millennia? While the exact origin of kombucha remains to be proved, it is generally accepted that it comes from the Far East, probably from North-eastern China.

Known as the ‘superfood of beverages’, kombucha provides a number of health benefits that are attributed to the fermentation process and its fundamental ingredient: ‘cha’ or ‘tea’.

This probiotic drink is made by fermenting tea and sugar with kombucha culture (SCOBY), which turns the sweet tea into a beverage full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and health-promoting organic acids. Learn how to brew it by yourself using the original method that has been used throughout the ages.
