Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead Honey sweet as can be

Forget wine made from grapes indulge in a glass of Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead which is made from 100% honey.

I was gifted a bottle of Loxwood Meadworks on a complimentary basis to tantalise my taste buds and for my honest opinion.

Loxwood MeadWorks

Danny the founder of Loxwood Meadworks sold Mead for The Loxwood Joust which is a medieval festival which he runs. During his festivals he noticed how much people loved it, and wondered why no one seems to drink Mead anymore?So with that he bought it back but in a modern way to sell.

Starting from scratch he experimented, tasted, and got designing to create a signature Pure Mead which you see today.

It’s fermented dry, and then back-sweetened with honey, to give the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.

Unlike other Mead’s you may have tried before, their Pure Mead is created using 100% honey, fermented dry, and then back-sweetened with honey, giving the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.

Sweet as can be

I can’t drink wine as of the fermented grapes used within wines, so when I heard about Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead which is an alternative version but made out of 100% honey instead.

Sorsa Kombucha brewing – Organic, Raw & Low Sugar Drink‎

Do you love tea? Then did you know that tea especially green tea, is often said to be good for your health as it contains substances which are linked to lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. However though moderate intake is recommended as drinking too much could lead to negative side effects, such as anxiety, headaches, digestive issues, and disrupted sleep patterns.

Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink which is commonly consumed for its supposed health benefits.

Lately there has been a major surge in popularity, for Kombucha even though it has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially a sweetened tea which is fermented with the help of a SCOBY. SCOBY is an acronym, which stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. It’s an odd looking thing bit like a flat slippery rubbery pancake but it’s the essential ingredient in making Kombucha. Its flavours can range from a vinegary to a sweet champagne like taste according to the brew and fermentation.

But what makes Kombucha better than other tea? Well Kombucha has many great health benefits and is rich in beneficial probiotics and contains antioxidants, and can kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases.

It is said to be healthy for your gut health, it reduces the risk of cancer, reduced infection, helps with mental health, heart disease, helps with weight loss, improve liver health, and helps with type 2 diabetes management.

So when I was gifted a brewing kit to brew my own Kombucha courtesy of Sorsa I just had to take up the challenge in brewing.
