Wild Kombucha founder Jason Tan suffered from eczema before realising what kombucha could do for his health and skin. Upon being gifted a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) from his brother, Tan started making small batches of kombucha before turning it into a viable business.
Tan's kombucha is handcrafted and brewed with real fruits while steering clear of added sugars except for minimal amount necessary for fermentation. All eight flavours—from peach blossom to lavender lemonade—have balanced profiles making every sip delightful.
Made with zero artificial flavouring and preservative, Boocha's kombucha is brewed with black and green tea along with natural fruits. This healthy carbonated beverage has natural bubbles, antioxidants and detoxifying components that are great for your gut.
