The Ancient Elixir of Immortality
Kombucha is a fermented and slightly effervescent tea known primarily for its probiotic / digestive health benefits. Kombucha originated in Russia where it was a fixture in every household and only became popular in the US in the 90's.
The basic process of brewing kombucha is simple - a base of green or black tea is brewed with sugar (Boochy Mama's recommends filtered water and organic tea & sugar) - once the sweet tea has cooled to room temperature, it is added to a jar with the SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). The SCOBY is the "mother" culture, similar to the culture used in vinegar, beer and wine making. The SCOBY sits in the tea for 7-14 days, converting the sugars into sour probiotic acids.
SCOBY's are living and multiply when given the right conditions. Boochy Mama's grows and divides the cultures and teaches the community how to brew their own kombucha at home. This knowledge can empower and transform an individual or a family's health trajectory for the better!
