What even is kombucha?

In a nutshell, kombucha (often lovingly referred to as “booch”) is fermented tea. The traditional method of making kombucha – which we follow at Remedy – involves a natural fermentation of sweet tea, wild bacteria and yeasts.

The result is a tasty drink with sweet and sour flavours that contains probiotics (aka healthy, living bacteria) and organic acids that are good for your gut and overall wellbeing, plus widely believed to have energising and healing properties.

Before you go passing it off as a fad, you should know that people around the world have been making and enjoying kombucha for thousands of years, particularly throughout Eastern Europe and Asia. Ask around. We bet you’ll find someone who’ll tell you that their Grandma or Dad has been brewing their own booch forever!
