Something Great For Your Gut Health
The rise in the trend of kombucha tea is backed up by evidence-based health benefits. Kombucha is a fizzy sweet-and-sour drink made with tea that is rich in beneficial probiotics, contains antioxidant, and can kill harmful bacteria in the gut. Let’s take a look at some local brewers below and get your hands on some energy-boosting kombucha!
1) Slo Kombucha
Slo Kombucha is taking a different approach to brewing their kombucha with lower sugar, milder acidity, and a longer fermentation process. Their best seller is the Nº2, made with lemongrass, butterfly pea flower tea, and infused with a blast of aromatic passionfruit. This aromatic brew doesn’t just taste good but looks pretty too! Look at the nice purple colour! They do offer other flavours with different coloured drinks too, so check them out yourself!

2) Mehcha Kombucha
If you don’t like the gassiness of kombucha but still want to drink it for all the health benefits, Mehcha Kombucha should be your top pick! Their kombucha is less fizzy than most of the store-bought brands and the best part is that they all come with real fruits in the bottles! A well-balanced mix of sweetness and sourness also makes them very easy to drink and with real fruits added in, it makes them very special and enjoyable. They recently launched a new flavour called O.M.G (Orange Mix Grapefruit). The combination of sweetness from the oranges and the bitterness of grapefruits will surely leave you loving it!
3) MVT Kombucha
MVT Kombucha has a stronger fermented flavour due to its longer fermentation process. This also contributes to what makes it a good mixer for soju, beer, gin etcetera. Yes, you can mix your kombucha with alcohol too! As a homebrewer, they try to source their ingredients locally and they also plant their own mint and basil for the kombucha too.
