Move over, sourdough. There’s a new fermented darling in town. Kombucha – an effervescent, sweet-sour, tea-based drink that is said to have originated in China many millennia ago – has been steadily gaining traction in Singapore over the past few years. There’s also been a recent mushrooming of home-based brewers since last year’s circuit breaker period, and the trend shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.
