What’s in your store-bought Kombucha. Trust us, it’s not all the same.
Hitting the shelves as a health food craze a few years ago, this probiotic, gut-loving drink, has stayed around and become a refreshment you see in supermarkets, cafes and even in alcoholic beverages…and all for good reasons too.
This hydrating, tummy loving drink is made from either a black or green tea base, add sugar which ferments with the help of a scoby and after a few weeks, it creates a lightly fermented fizzy drink. Add in different flavours to your liking and it’s a healthy alternative to any soft drink on the market. You can make it at home (here’s our recipe) or if you can’t be bothered but still want some bubbles with benefits to accompany your lunch kombucha ticks ALL the boxes. And our favourite which is on supermarket shelves is from WA owned, Rok Kombucha.
Handmade and batched brewed locally in our very own Margaret River by two Perth locals, Rok is raw, organic and bloody delicious.
Why choose Rok over the others?
- The best tasting premium booch; Their kombucha is hand-crafted using only the highest quality organic white and green teas and raw, cold-pressed juices to create Australia’s premium kombucha.
- Brewed by an experienced winemaker; blended and processed similar to those created in Australia’s finest wines.
- Single-origin white and green teas; specifically sourced from a certified organic, premium tea plantation…that’s as fresh as it gets!
- Pure Margaret River Water; as fresh as it gets from the amazing South West, you can taste the difference.
With seven flavours to choose from like ginger pop, passionfruit rap and apple jazz, your insides will reap the benefits while you enjoy a sparkling drink. Also, this is totally kid approved..say goodbye to the soft drink and replace it with this.
When it comes to choosing your kombucha it’s important you consider a few things before you consider the price. Is it local? Kombucha needs to be stored at a certain temperature to get the health benefits so shipping can play out a major obstacle when it comes to the booch. Not always! but something to note. How many probiotics are in the booch? A great way to test this is to pour a small amount into a glass and put it in a cupboard. If it starts to form a scoby you know it’s a high-quality batch. Good booch doesn’t taste watered down, it still needs to patch a punch when you open it.
Keep an eye out next time you’re in your local café or supermarket and next time you spend your hard-earned dollars on a healthy drink alternative, make sure you are getting what you pay for.
