Vancouver area workshop to explore the secrets of kombucha

October 3, 2017 by  

Kombucha is a fermented drink made from black or green tea that is believed to have originated in Manchuria thousands of years ago, and a Vancouver area event will be sharing the secret to success in creating this beverage.

Rooted Nutrition’s Andrea Potter will be facilitating the session, which will start off by exploring the health benefits of kombucha and will then move on to providing a hands-on learning experience so that the attendees can learn how to make it for themselves. There will also be a discussion of how to make different flavours of the drink, and each person who comes out will walk away with their very own jar of the fermented tea to take home with them. Comb binding is a technique that a local printer can use to craft simple recipe books for this type of event.

While the workshop will be educational, it has also been planned to be a fun and social event. The price per person to participate in the evening’s activities has been set at $8.25 each, and it is being offered as part of the Gleneagles Homesteaders series of workshops.

The Gleneagles Community Centre in West Vancouver will be hosting this exploration of Kombucha, and it will be held on October 25. Anyone who would like to register can do so by contacting 604-990-3755.
