What is Boocha?
Simply put, Boocha is Kombucha. Ok, so what is Kombucha?
Kombucha is an ancient cultured beverage made of tea and sugar. It contains bacteria and yeast which starts the fermentation process when the tea and sugar mix. After the tea solution is cultured, it becomes effervescent and the end result contains live probiotic bacteria which has been widely studied to affect health in many ways including but not limited to gut health, mental clarity, weight loss and more.
The bacteria and yeast which cultures the solution is commonly called a “SCOBY” which means symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. It can be made with black teas or green teas.
Because most of the sugar is eaten by the SCOBY in the process, the end result makes for a healthier, lower-sugar-than-pop fizzy drink. It has gained more traction in the last couple years and definitely gained the wider exposure it deserves. We are excited to be Edmonton’s first kombucha brand, and we are very excited to bring you a delicious product we can proudly stand behind.
