I was lucky enough to receive a box of samples of kombucha recently, a health food drink which I had never tried before!
Kombucha is an ancient drink made of fermented sweetened green tea. It contains a probiotic culture made of a mixture of good bacteria and yeast which means it's great for digestive health and also naturally carbonated. So to put that into simple terms, it's like sweet and fizzy green tea in a bottle. Bizarre, right?
But don't knock it till you've tried it, I've heard such good things about it and I was eager to try it, especially since this particular brand is a UK brand!
My two favourites are the ones below:
The ginger one is like drinking ginger beer but with a slight twang from the yeast which almost makes it taste a little bit alcoholic. It's refreshing and it is just fizzy enough to make your tongue tingle when you take a swig!
The wild berry one has a nice fruity kick to it, It's a pretty pink colour and it's sweet, but also reminds me of herbal tea at the same time. It's also a little fizzy, like a healthier version of your usual fizzy drinks.
Definitely give them a go! Check out http://www.equinoxkombucha.com/
