Urban Platter Artisanal Kombucha Tea, Smoky Oolong, 500ml [The Classic, Earthy Oolong, By Bombucha]
Lovely, healthy Smoky Oolong spiked kombucha. Probiotics are delightful creatures. Kombucha is a natural bubbly beverage with an abundance of probiotics. It is brewed using tea and sugar through a fermentation process that requires a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY).
Don’t worry about the bits & flowers. They are healthy strands of kombucha & fruity to be enjoyed.
Kombucha can help achieve digestive balance, boost your energy level, detox the liver, and possibly help maintain a healthy weight.
We brew our tea, sweeten it with organic raw sugar, then add SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), which basically makes the magic happen to produce unique signature flavours.
This original kombucha is made from earthy oolong and pinewood smoked tea, catering to the gourmet palettes. It combines the qualities of dark and green teas, giving it several interesting health benefits from boosting metabolism and reducing stress, helping you feel simply great each day.
What is a Scoby?
“Scoby” is actually an acronym: Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. And that’s exactly what it is! A scoby is the living home for the bacteria and yeast that transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha — think of the scoby as the coral reef of the bacteria and yeast world. It a rubbery raft that floats on the surface of the kombucha. Aside from being a home for yeast and good bacteria, the scoby seals off the fermenting kombucha from the air and protects it from outside, undesirable bacterias while it’s fermenting.
P.S. You’ll also sometimes hear scobys referred to as “kombucha mothers” or “kombucha mushrooms.” If you read or hear references to these things, know that it’s all the same thing.
