The Chaya Garden Ashram Kombucha Bar

New elixirs brewed daily to delight the taste buds. Using a variety of teas and fruits, we combine the rejuvenating powers of Kombucha with local plant medicines to create unique great tasting beverages available nowhere else on the planet. Such favorites as Jamaica, Gumbo Limbo and Wild Yam are combined with ginger, lemongrass, green tea, jasmine tea, and wild Belizean vanilla. Kombucha is a living culture with natural effervescence, and is a powerful extractor of herbs and flavours.

The Kombucha culture is a beneficial and symbiotic combination of bacteria and yeast. The culture is commonly referred to as the Mushroom or the Mother, in that it closely resembles Mother of Vinegar, (used to make apple cider vinegar), and has similar health benefits.

Kombucha is a wonderful cleanser of the cells and tissues. It contains glucuronic acid which binds poisons and toxins and flushes them from the body via the kidneys. This fermented and cultured tea also provides vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic Acid, L-lactic Acid and Usnic Acid which has an antibacterial effect.

It is purported to assist in combating conditions of Candida, insomnia, arthritis, asthma, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, problems of digestion and elimination, problems with the gall bladder and liver, burning fat, boosting the immune system, and healing skin conditions.

We love it because it is a fantastic drink, and fun to brew. We are constantly coming up with new combinations and variations. Kombucha is the champagne of health.
