Artisan kombucha inspired by traditional Chinese herbalism
Real ingredients. Fair trade tea. Natural herb infusions.
Yumcha's adventure started a few years ago when a friend suggested I drink kombucha in lieu of pop. And by suggest, I mean she sent me home with a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and very detailed instructions on how to start my first brew.
Two weeks later, it was not love at first sip.
What I didn't realize at the time, was that I can't use just any ingredients I had at home, quality made the biggest difference. With each brew, my knowledge increased and my brew got better. It took me a couple of years to fully understand how to create a consistent brew with quality ingredients.
This is why at Yumcha, only real and natural ingredients are used. It starts with a blend of organic, fair trade teas from India, delicious BC water, and sugar for the initial ferment. Each bottle then gets fresh pressed juice and herbs added for flavour prior to going through a final fermentation.
With all of our ingredients sourced as locally as possible, you are left with a slightly tart, slightly sweet, effervescent drink that is good for your body and conscience.
I hope you enjoy Yumcha kombucha as much as I do. Feel free to connect with me through email or social media and let me know your thoughts.
