Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented tea; it is made by placing a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) in brewed tea for a period of time. The culture takes fuel from the sugar and nutrients in the tea to create a sweet, tart, and somewhat fizzy drink. Kombucha fans around the world have identified many benefits for consuming kombucha; benefits include aid in digestion, better absorption of nutrients, reduction of inflammation, and more. A beautiful choice when pairing with burgers and other greasy favourites as a healthy alternative to the traditional soda

Bubble Tea 

Bubble tea is a cool, refreshing, sweet drink with boba, aka tapioca pearls (or flavored jellies, or popping boba) sitting on the bottom of a clear cup. It is a specialty dessert drink that comes with a fruit or milk tea base, a variety of flavors, and a uniquely fat straw to suck up the boba. 
Tapioca pearls are usually black but can be white or transparent in color. It varies depending on the ingredients of the pearl. White and translucent pearls are made of tapioca starch, while  lack pearls includes tapioca starch, sometimes cassava root, brown sugar and caramel to add the black color.
The consistency of tapioca pearls are somewhere between jell-o and chewing gum. Many people think it’s similar to the texture of a gummy bear. The tapioca texture is completely unique! The pearls are approximately the size of a marble.

Chai Tea 

Chai is steeped in a rich history. The name “chai” is actually the Hindi word for “tea”, which was derived from “cha”, the Chinese word for “tea”. In this case, the Hindi term chai means a mix of spices steeped into a tea-like beverage. Recipes for chai vary across continents, cultures, towns and families. But the traditional ingredients of a spiced tea blend usually include black tea mixed with strong spices, like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger and black peppercorns. The spiced tea mixture is typically brewed strong with milk and sweetened with sugar or honey. However, the milky sweet tea treat we order in coffee and tea shops today has very little in common with the origins of Indian chai

Rooibos

Rooibos pronounced ROY-bus, is a herb native to the beautiful Cederberg region of South Africa. It has small  needle-like leaves that yield a dark cooper infusion with notes of honey, apricots and cedar wood and contains no caffeine. Gaining popularity because of its health benefits, Roobios has been blended with other fruits and flowers to produce some wonderful unique flavors. Brewed hot or cold, it goes well with almost any dish and is thirst-quenching on a hot summers day.
