sparkling living tea
KOMBUCHA is a traditionally sparkling drink obtained from the probiotic fermentation of tea. Its origins stem from an ancient oriental tradition of over a thousand years!
Widely known as an Elixir of Life, KOMBUCHA is a refreshing drink rich in beneficial properties, now consumed all over the world. Curious to know its secrets?
THE MAGIC OF THE SCOBY
To make KOMBUCHA you need a few simple ingredients: water, tea, a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts, called SCOBY, and… sugar.
How can such a healthy drink contain sugar? The sugar is not for us but for our SCOBY!
After brewing a tea infusion, sugar and this magical bacterial culture are added. During fermentation, the SCOBY feeds on the sugar and transforms it into beneficial substances for the body. Thanks so much SCOBY!
THE BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA
During fermentation symbiotic bacteria and yeasts multiply, transforming the sugar into beneficial substances for the body. Furthermore, the fermentation process gives KOMBUCHA a typically acidic pH, a property that helps the body regain its own balance.
Over time, KOMBUCHA is enriched with active ingredients, digestive enzymes, pro and prebiotics, antioxidants, organic acids, vitamins B and C, amino acids, minerals and polyphenols. Thanks to all these beneficial substances it has been known for millennia as “tea of immortality”. Here are some of its amazing natural properties:
