creating a symbiotic culture of people through a symbiotic culture of probiotics
kombucha is said to have many benefits, most boiling down to it being a probiotic - a healthy bacteria that makes your gut really happy. kombucha is created through the process of fermentation - the chemical breakdown of a substance by way of bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms. we like to call it a bit of a magic trick, really - all you need's a starter disk, a good tea, sugar, & a covered vessel - set it up, leave it be, come back to a completely different being!
after all, it is alive ...
we get into the thick of all things kombucha in each of our 2 [& a half!] come 'bucha™ class options:
