Brewing for good health
The famed fermented tea has truly gone mainstream.
Miracle fungus, gout jellyfish and Manchurian mushroom tea – these are all names that describe the popular fermented tea commonly known as kombucha. Global demand for this ‘elixir of immortality’ has bubbled well beyond the health food shops, into the mainstream market.
Originating in the Far East, the naturally fermented health drink was used as a medicinal tonic for centuries. Recognised for its health benefits in aiding digestion and balancing the gut, committed kombucha fans say it also gives them additional immune support, better metabolism, increased energy and a sense of overall wellbeing.
