Who loves kombucha??? I do, I do! Who loves raw food? I do, I do! The last and final question: Do you live on Maui?? Are you on Maui?? If you answered yes to three of the last four questions, this blog entry is for you!
It’s officially time for each one of you to head upcountry and check out what Maui Kombucha is doing in Haiku. When arriving at Maui Kombucha, you will be greeted with bright smiles and shining faces. Chris and Jen are the loving founders of the Maui Kombucha company. Together they have created an abundance of kombucha flavors using local fruits, herbs, and hydrosals! All of which taste amazing! If you’re lucky, you might even get a sample of the kombucha du jour! The elixir lounge has a few stools and a table for enjoying a beautiful raw lunch and beverages. Chris and Jen have a variety of items to choose from that change on a daily basis. In the past, I have experienced an explosion of flavors from tacos, blt’s, tostadas, pizza, praise allah platter w/ falafal and hummus, squash croquettes, and much more. Make sure you save room for desserts, because they are all amazing and available. Try the lavender peace pie, the bunny spice pie, the chai pie, or the cacao mint! All of which have flavors that exercise my taste buds in a beautiful way! The energy in Maui Kombucha is always radiant and bright. Thank you Chris and Jen for what you have created. The two of you are talented and beautiful and I’m thankful for every experience that we have shared.
What is kombucha?
Kombucha is commonly known by most as an ancient Chinese tea or a live mushroom culture. It is indeed a living culture full of beneficial microorganisms! Kombucha is delicately cultured or fermented for approximently 30 days. During this period, essential nutrients form active enzymes, viable probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants and polyphenols. Together this combination creates an amazing elixir that works to restore your body’s balance and vitality. Kombucha has been used for hundreds of years throughout the world as a daily health tonic. The culture resembles a light brown, tough, gelatinous disk—and because it’s a living, growing entity, it can regenerate and create new cultures with almost every batch.
