Sparkling Green Tea. Kombucha and Jun originate in China and Tibet, where they were traditionally made by fermenting tea with either sugar or honey, to create a naturally effervescent and refreshing beverage.
Loving Foods Kombucha and Jun is naturally cultured using organic green tea and organic cane sugar, or organic honey, using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) to drive the fermentation process. This technique is a time-honoured method of preparation, resulting in a drink packed full of vitamins, enzymes and probiotics, prized by cultures throughout the world, who value its ability to promote good health and wellbeing. Sugar and honey are both crucial nutrients for the growing bacteria to survive and multiply. During the process of fermentation, the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY), consume them and in the process, produce wonderful strains of beneficial bacteria, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
The final product only contains a small amount of the original sugar content, as most of it is consumed by the bacteria and yeast. As another lovely side benefit, they also make the drink nice and fizzy.
Additionally, all of the water used in our drinks is double filtered using both active ceramic and granular activated carbon to remove impurities and for a great taste. These are a fantastic, tasty, clean alternative to commercially available fizzy drinks sodas.
