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.

Did you know you can enjoy an afternoon tea underneath the Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark is one of the main vocal points of Greenwich which many people gaze upon and even board. However did you know that you can enjoy an afternoon tea under her?

I had the pleasure of being invited on a complimentary basis to take a tour of the Cutty Sark before enjoying an afternoon tea under her belly.

The Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship and was built back in 1869 to challenge the best tea clippers on the China tea run.

Built on the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland for Jock Willis Shipping Line, the Cutty Sark was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest.

For her first few years the Cutty Sark was used to transport tea back and forth from England to China before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years.

In 1895 the Cutty Sark was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until purchased in 1922 by retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman, who used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth in Cornwall. After his death, Cutty Sark was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College in Greenhithe in 1938 where she became an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954, she had ceased to be useful as a cadet ship and was transferred to here in Greenwich within a permanent dry dock for the public to enjoy.
