Cult Following // Kombucha
02 May 2018
Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been around for hundreds of years and, due to good gut health being such a popular topic these days, kombucha has developed quite the cult following.
Kombucha is a great source of probiotics and there are a lot of kombucha advocates out there claiming its many health benefits such as increased immunity, helping symptoms of asthma, diabetes, gout, insomnia, rheumatism and in general supporting good gut health.
But we'll be honest, the thought of making our own kombucha from a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) that grows in a jar on our kitchen bench isn’t that appealing (for those who do, HIGH FIVE!). We prefer to buy ours!
So, we've created a list of all the places in the Highlands that sell kombucha on tap or in a bottle. Because anything that helps our gut health has to be good, right?
Bare Body Beauty now have two gorgeous stores. The original flagship store in Berrima where they sell a delicious variety of flavours, and their brand new store down at The Mill in Bowral. BBB at The Mill will be selling (as of Mother's Day) the Kombucha Zest For Life range of 10 (yes 10!) flavours, from the ‘Straight Up’ raw kombucha to ‘Oh Mojito’ mint & lime and ‘Hot Threesome’ with ginger, turmeric and pepper!
Source Bulk Foods have a really great selection of flavoured kombucha on tap.
Their staples are: Super Blend - Turmeric & Ginger, Mango & Pineapple, and Raspberry & Lime. With additional flavours of Hibiscus & Goji Berry, Lemon Myrtle and Winter & Unity (a strong version of the Turmeric and Ginger)
The Vale Cafe also have kombucha on tap with Ginger & Lime as well as the delicious Passion Fruit flavour.
IN A BOTTLE
Sometimes we just need to grab a bottle on the fly, so here is a list of local cafes and supermarkets you can pick one up from.
