Just like Kombucha, water kefir is a yummy, fizzy and healthy probiotic drink made from fermented cane sugar water. We use a different strain of yeast and bacteria exists in our kefir drinks.
This spring, we are bringing you the Sakura Kefir which is brewed with edible cherry blossoms from Japan. In Japan, cherry blossoms can be pickled with and dried in salt. They are used in wedding ceremonies as Sakuracha/Sakurayu (sakura tea 桜茶). Some use it to add a floral scent to sweet and savoury dishes - Cherry Blossom Madeleines and Cherry Bloom Onigiri.
Sakura has a relaxing scent that is good to fight hangover and stress. Cherry blossoms also symbolise the arrival of spring - a beginning of a new year. Catch a taste of spring with our new Kefir!
