Founded by Eva Sippl, who is originally from Germany and is a natural health practitioner, Eva’s Herbucha is one of Portland’s first kombucha brands. It’s also distinct for its use of herbal teas in first fermentation, which Eva blends with green tea (with 2:1 ratio of herbs to tea). Hence the name Herbucha.
The Rose City Blend flavor, for instance, contains passionflower, organic oatstraw, organic skullcap. The latter, which is added to the booch in the form of dried leaves, stems and flowers, has been used to treat anxiety and has a calming effect. This kombucha is definitely unlike any we've tasted. It's a beautiful, crisp, floral and perfectly fizzy concoction that is a joy to sip on.
