Did you know that our South End location has Kombucha on tap? We do and it's delicious! We also sell it in bottles at all other locations! Lenny Boy Kombucha is locally brewed by Townes Mozer, a Charlotte native and founder of the company. Some of you may be wondering what Kombucha even is. Well, in short (sort of), Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from sugar, tea, water, and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. During the fermentation process the bacteria and yeast convert the sugar into organic acids. In addition, gluconic, lactic and folic acids are a byproduct of the fermentation. This ancient elixir is an all natural, organic detoxifying drink; most who drink it say it gives them an extra boost of energy. After fermenting, the tea is full of probiotics that work with your body to boost the immune system, stimulate your metabolism, and rejuvenate your mind. Kombucha has been enjoyed around the world for ages and has been popularized here in the states in more recent years. Townes first discovered the health giving tea on a trip to Oregon, while still in college at UNCW. Townes says "With the first few sips of Kombucha Tea, I felt the amazing effect on both my mind and my body. I knew I found my answer." Upon returning he began to brew it for friends and family. After graduation, he spent roughly a year working on an organic farm in Asheville and furthering his knowledge of herbs at the Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism. Upon returning to Charlotte, Townes was ready to share his Kombucha with the world (or at least the Charlotte area!) He chose the name Lenny Boy as a tribute to his best dog friend Lennox! Today, he brews many flavors and puts out seasonal choices, which of course, you can purchase at HHM! We will announce new deliveries and flavors via Twitter, so be on the look out. Enjoy!
