What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented tea that originated in East Asia over 2,000 years ago. It was known for healing properties and called the tea of immortality.

Bootleg Bucha has created a refreshing, low-sugar beverage that is lightly carbonated and full of naturally occurring probiotics. Our kombucha is made with a special blend of green and black teas. After the tea is brewed, organic cane sugar and a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) are added to initiate the fermentation process. After a few weeks, the fermented tea is flavored using juices and herbs and then bottled. Bootleg Bucha is a raw product; we never compromise the good bacteria by pasteurizing our kombucha. Containing probiotics, digestive enzymes, vitamin B, amino acids and antioxidants, our kombucha is great on its own or mixed with spirits to put a healthier twist on cocktails.

The benefits of drinking kombucha include:

  1. Digestion– Good for ulcers, heartburn, and overall digestion due to beneficial bacteria from probiotics.
  2. Joint Care– Contains glucosamine, which increases synovial hyalurnic acid production. Hylurnic acid is responsible for the lubrication and flexibility in joints. Also supports healthy collagen production.
  3. Detoxification– Glucuronic acid is beneficial to the liver, it binds toxins and helps to excrete them.
  4. Energy– Includes B vitamins that increase energy, while acetic acid and polyphenols boost the metabolism.
