5 Malaysian-Brewed Kombucha Brands That Are Good For Your Gut

July 20th, 2021 at 6:26 am

You might have heard about it from your health-conscious yoga instructor or seen your in-the-know Instagram friend swear by its benefits. But if you are still clueless to what kombucha really is, for the love of gut, you’re about to get a Kombucha 101 crash course!

At its simplest level, kombucha, or the “booch” as some like to call it, is fermented tea. It is typically made by brewing together tea, sugar, liquid from a previous batch and a colony of live bacteria and yeast known as SCOBY, essentially short for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.

This beverage, with the perfect balance of tang and tart, has managed to gain a cult following over the years as it’s known to be a great source of probiotics – but most of all, it just tastes really good! The probiotics found in kombucha can improve gut health and aid digestion.

Now, if that pitch got your attention and you would like to taste the benefits of the booch for yourself, we’ve put together a list of some homegrown Malaysian kombuchas below:

  1. WonderBrew Kombucha

Sourced from local farmers and the first Halal-certified kombucha in Malaysia, WonderBrew Kombucha is produced in small batches to preserve its quality and freshness. The company also encourages sustainability by upcycling its SCOBY into vegan leather, as well as running recycling programmes for its customers. Their popular blends include Markisa Breeze, a concoction of passion fruit with a hint of mint, and Lite Green, for those who prefer lite tea with a smoother and floral after-taste.

 

  1. Belly Good Kombucha

Founded by two good friends in 2017, Belly Good Kombucha is brewed and bottled right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Made using premium tea biscuits sourced from their various tea plantations in Yunnan Province, China, Belly Good’s kombuchas are guaranteed to give you an optimally balanced brew with the right amount of crisp and refreshing flavour. Their current flavour combinations include First Love (lychee and pu-er tea), Piña Colada (pineapple, coconut and green tea), Lululemonade (lemon, ginger and green tea) and Golden Goddess (ginger, lemongrass, turmeric and pu-er tea).

Wild Kombucha is the brainchild of Jason Tan who recognised what a simple, fizzy booch could do for his health and skin. The Malaysian artisanal kombucha brand handcrafts its brews in small batches using natural ingredients, such as real fruits, to make every sip pleasantly fragrant and delightfully healing. With 12 flavours to choose from – some of which include The Apple Aid, Lavender Lemonade, Tropical Mango and Sencha Pear, there’s something for every taste bud. If you’re feeling bold, you can also go wild with their Cultured Coffee kombucha, a refreshing fermented coffee that helps promote good digestion.

 

  1. ChaCha Kombucha

Founded by plant-based chef, Matthieu Morisset and fitness trainer, Ishaq Vadillo, ChaCha Kombucha is made with 100% natural ingredients for guilt-free drinking pleasure. Brewed in a microbrewery in Damansara Perdana, ChaCha’s kombuchas are expected to pack a fruity and fizzy kick to help make healthy living enjoyable. Customers can enjoy a range of flavours such as Love Bucha (raspberry), Green Bucha (apple, carrot, spinach, celery and cucumber) and Buzz Bucha (vanilla).

 

  1. Zenboocha

Fairly new in the market, this homemade kombucha brand was created with the purpose to make Malaysians feel good both on the inside and the outside. Zenboocha carefully selects its natural ingredients to produce unapologetically flavourful and annoyingly guilt-free brews. All four flavours from Ginger Honey to Passion Potion has refreshing flavours packed with antioxidants that are great for your gut.

 

We don’t know about you, but you can never go wrong with a fizzy bevvy that’s also rich in probiotics, especially on more scorching days. We’ll drink to that!
