What is kombucha tea?

Kombucha is a fermented tea, made with a scoby (a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and is an ancient beverage, with Asian roots, where it was revered as the “tea of immortality”. Kombucha has been highlighted recently as one of the key wellness trends of 2018[1] in the UK. Fermented food and drinks are known for their beneficial gut health properties, and kombucha is at the forefront of the trend. As the Left Field team says, Kombucha has been consumed in East Asia for centuries as a healthy home-made tonic – 2,000 years of evolved culture can’t be wrong!

What is National Kombucha Day?

The brainchild of new TV series, Tried & Tested TV, it sees top UK kombucha brands coming together to celebrate kombucha and explain more about this drink, hugely popular Stateside, but only just becoming more known here in the UK. Andrew Mellon, the man behind it all, having recently returned from living in Los Angeles, and knowing how popular kombucha is there, wanted to spread the word of kombucha far and wide.

Two leading Scottish brands: Left Field Kombucha makes its kombucha from only the finest tea, and so eteaket were the obvious choice to collaborate with on National Kombucha Day. As Jo Easingwood Roberts, Co-founder of Left Field Kombucha says “eteaket teas are first class and we make our kombucha with only premium ethically-sourced teas, and so we were definitely each other’s cup of tea (or glass of sparkling tea!)”. Angela Lyons, General Manager at eteaket agrees “We love to see what tea can do, and this event will do just that, with Left Field in our store”
