Kombuchas are those unconventional and highly misinterpreted drinks that we've become pretty accustomed to over the last couple of years. The journey of moving away from ultra fizzy and sweetened drinks towards these fermented healthy concoctions has been great. Offering a gazillion health benefits, these beverages have undoubtedly become our favourite go-to-drinks. So, here's a list of some kick-ass brands that you can order Kombuchas from and bid adieu to those unhealthy drinks (not counting booze here, guys).
