In the world of beverages, kombucha tea is clearly having its moment. The sweet tangy flavoured drink is everywhere – in cafes, pubs and supermarkets.
And when paired with flavours like ginger, lemon and peach it certainly packs a punch. Being naturally high in probiotics and low in sugar – you’ll love knowing it’s doing your body some good, too.
Making kombucha at home is easy and – best of all – cheap. And when you use filtered water you can be confident that you’re not adding in any of the nasties that may be found in tap water. It won’t take you long to see what all the fuss is about.
If you are ready to kick your soft drink habit and switch to kombucha – you won’t regret it. In fact, your gut will thank you for it!
Kombucha is naturally packed with probiotics and antioxidants. This helps keep harmful bacteria in the gut at bay.
It also has much-needed vitamins that your body needs. Vitamins C and B1, B6 and B12 – all play an important part in supporting the healthy functioning of the nervous system and immune system.
And the best part… kombucha is low in sugar. While sugar is used as a key starter ingredient, during the brewing process the sugar is converted into healthy organic acids.
Using filtered water to make kombucha means you will get the most flavour from your recipe. And you’ll be keeping away some of those nasties that can be found in tap water.
Best of all using, filtered water improves the taste – no chlorine in your kombucha! It’s simply a healthier choice.
The good thing about making kombucha at home is that it only takes a handful of ingredients.
The very essence of kombucha that brings the flavour and magic is the scoby. It’s a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast – aka the mother. It provides bacteria and yeast to ferment the sweet tea, protecting the tea from outside contaminants and gives a loose seal to keep in a bit of the fizz.
If you have a friend who makes their own kombucha, you can ask them to give you a part of their scoby to start your own culture. You can use the scoby over and over again… and as it grows, soon enough you’ll be the one your friends are coming to for a piece of scoby.
Ginger. Lemon. Peach. Berry. Lime. Mint. The sky’s the limit! You’ll love finding new flavours to add to your kombucha recipe.
Add the flavouring – fresh fruit and herbs are best – once your kombucha has finished fermenting and the scoby has been removed.
At WFA, we believe that water should be healthy, free from nasties and taste great.
