Obsessed with... Kombucha

At the moment, my preferred drink of choice is - without a doubt - Kombucha. Fizzy, delicious and full of healthy goodness, it's a brilliant soft drink alternative.

Quite a lot of you will probably be wondering what on earth I'm talking about; so, what is Kombucha? And why should you make it your new best friend?

Kombucha is a fermented drink of sweetened black or green tea. Handmade, and using a unique fermentation recipe, Kombucha has been around since the 1800's, with origins in Asia (predominantly in China).

Known as the "champagne of the gods', the elixir has a wide range of health benefits. It is said to be helpful in the treatment and management of joint care, detoxification, digestion, gut health, and the immune system. I would like to think that drinking Kombucha assisted me in improving my digestive disorders.

My absolute favourite Kombucha here in Perth is by MOJO, and is available at Absolutely Organic in Gwelup and Solomon's Cafe in Highgate, amongst other places.

MOJO's Kombucha contains no added sugar, is full of living yeast and good bacteria, is unfiltered, is made in Australia, is certified organic, vegan friendly and gluten free.
