What is kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented beverage brewed using tea, sugar and a kombucha culture - a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). The fermentation process transforms the sweet tea into a delicious and healthy beverage rich in beneficial acids, enzymes and probiotics. Kombucha will give a boost to your digestion, detoxification and immune system.
At Tofino Kombucha, we use only premium organic ingredients. Our culture is an authentic kombucha culture, organic, non-GMO and not lab created. We put as much care and attention into keeping our culture happy as we put into brewing our kombucha. A healthy culture creates healthy kombucha!
Using only premium organic teas, we carefully blend our tea to provide the kombucha culture the optimal balance of nutrients to produce optimally balanced acids, giving the brew it's crisp and refreshing character. Our teas are blended just prior to brewing to ensure their beautiful aroma and depth of flavour are consistently captured in each batch of kombucha.
We all need nourishment, and so does our kombucha culture! Our fair trade, organic evaporated cane juice gives life to our culture. Working together, the kombucha culture of bacteria and yeast convert most of the sugars in the cane juice and the nutrients in the brewed tea into beneficial acids, enzymes and probiotics. This complex transformation from simple tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast into the nourishing kombucha that we all know and love is just as fascinating as watching your wild sourdough bread rise and double right before your eyes!
