Kombucha has risen in popularity not only because it’s available in many flavors and variants (‘bucha cocktails, anyone?), but also mainly for the many health benefits a bottle of booch brings. Now that it’s the peak of summertime, we’re always looking for ways to cool us down. Most cold and refreshing drinks that are widely available, unfortunately, are in the not-quite-healthy spectrum. Sodas with a lot of additives and artificial ingredients, juice drinks loaded with too much sugar, to name a few. Enter kombucha: a tea beverage that is fermented and served chilled. Similar to kimchi and yogurt, it has probiotic properties that aid in better digestion.
If you want to refresh your parched palate with this fizzy probiotic drink, no need to seek imported (and usually more expensive) kombucha. We’re now seeing more local businesses focusing on brewing their own kombucha, and offering it for delivery in the metro!
