Debunking Common Myths: Discovering Kombucha

Kombucha has been steadily increasing in popularity over the past few years. With a growing amount of information, how do you know what to believe? Ever since we started our journey in making kombucha and sharing more about how to brew your own kombucha at home, we have been exposed to different perceptions of kombucha.

Perception #1: Kombucha is rich in caffeine

Our kombucha is traditionally brewed with black or green tea. Tea leaves naturally contain caffeine. The caffeine found in tea leaves can actually act as a natural deterrence for unwanted pests, which might harm the delicate tea leaves.

The fermentation process significantly reduces the presence of caffeine, and the remaining caffeine in kombucha is much lower as compared to drinking coffee or tea straight! 

Perception #2: Learning more about brewing kombucha is difficult and costly

We offer some of the best kombucha starter kits in Singapore to get you started. Each starter kit comes with all the necessary ingredients and materials you need to make a successful and tasty kombucha. With simple step-by-step instructions, you’ll be brewing delicious kombuchas in no time!

If you would like to learn more about the process of fermentation and experiment with different teas yourself, our starter kit is perfect for you.

Perception #3: Kombucha is extremely alcoholic

Kombucha contains trace amounts of naturally occurring alcohol due to the fermentation process. However, with alcohol levels <0.5% ABV, kombucha is a non-alcoholic beverage.

When home-brewing, changes in fermentation time, temperature and ingredients may cause the alcohol content to fluctuate slightly.
