We’ve just taken delivery of two Kombucha teas from Glastonbury Ferments and, if you’d like to sample them, I’ve got a couple of bottles open for tasting in the shop this week.
So, what is Kombucha?
In its simplest terms, Kombucha is a fermented tea – two teas in this case, a gunpowder green tea for the hibiscus and ginger and a black pu’ehr tea for the hops with citrus.
Kombucha is made by a process of natural fermentation that utilises tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. This process increases the nutritional value of the vitamins, minerals and enzymes, whilst making them easier for your body to digest.
And, being a probiotic culture, Kombucha helps to populate your digestive system with the “friendly” bacteria that we’re hearing so much about these days.
So that means that, by drinking Kombucha tea, you’ll be making a direct, positive contribution to your overall health and well-being.
Plus, it tastes pretty good, too! (If you look on their website, they’ve teamed up the hibiscus and ginger with gin and ice to produce a rather delicious cocktail.)
