For fans of kombucha, you are in luck! Four rotating flavors of Baba’s Brew Kombucha are available on tap at Harvest Market!
What is kombucha, anyway?
(pronounced “kom-BOO-cha”), often called “mushroom tea,” is a raw, freshly brewed drink made by hand from sweet tea and a Kombucha culture known as a “SCOBY” (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). It is naturally effervescent through the magic of fermentation, very low in sugar and rich in probiotics, live enzymes and antioxidants. It originated in China around 221 BC and was called the “Elixir of Life”. SCOBY metabolizes the sugar and tea to grow and transforms the liquid into a refreshing, slightly tangy beverage that has very low in sugar and has only 25 calories per serving. In comparison 1 can of soda contains 230 calories and for four times amount of sugar. Kids enjoy it as a healthy soda and sports drink alternative.
