常見問題

點解叫「叻茶」?

「叻」并非指飲用後會考試滿分或聰明能幹。叻,書面指「聰明」,中醫意指『耳聰目明』。能聽得清楚、睇得明白,唯身體健康方可達到。

什麼是發酵茶?

發酵茶是一種由茶、糖、紅茶菌Scoby(由酵母菌、醋酸菌、乳酸菌組成)發酵而成的天然健康益生菌氣泡飲品。發酵茶口感酸甜清爽,發酵過程中,茶中的酵母和益生菌會分解糖分,產生碳酸氣泡和身體所需的維生素和微量元素。

 

叻茶有什麼益處?

叻茶發酵茶內含多種有機酸、醋酸與消化酶,能幫助身體調整腸道菌叢生態,增加腸內益生菌生長,並與害菌競爭養份及減少腸道害菌增長,產生抗菌物質,達到促進消化、幫助排便等保健效果。茶多酚則有抗氧化、抑制身體內自由基堆積及延緩衰老等功效。

 

如何保存叻茶?

未打開的發酵茶可在室溫存放1-3天,室溫環境會令茶中益生菌持續發酵。雖然不會變壞,但會使味道變酸,成為茶醋,影響口感。因此建議冷藏,利用低溫環境延緩發酵,並於3個月內飲用。若是已打開並且曾直接對嘴飲用則建議即日喝完。

 

如何飲用叻茶?

基本上叻茶適合每個人飲用。根據美國疾病控制和預防中心,建議一日可飲用120-600毫升的發酵茶。雖然飲用超過600毫升並不會構成生命危險,但因為發酵茶中含有少量糖分,因此特殊身體狀況人士,如懷孕、哺乳婦女、嬰兒、酒精過敏、糖尿病患者等建議在飲用前先諮詢家庭醫生和注意用量。

 

叻茶瓶中發現絮狀物?

瓶內的棕色或透明絮狀物為益生菌和酵母發酵過程中產生的酵母纖維。屬於正常現象,如同膳食纖維,可安全食用。

 

 

叻茶含有酒精和咖啡因嗎?

如泡菜、納豆等食品,自然發酵過程中,食物會產生少量低於0.5%的酒精。個別兒童、孕婦和酒精過敏人士者需注意。

一般的茶中含有咖啡因,但經發酵後,部分咖啡因被益生菌分解和使用,因此一杯發酵茶所剩下的咖啡因只有原本的茶中約1/3的咖啡因。

Why Lectcha?

Lectcha because it sounds similar to the word "Lecture". As our founders come from an academic background, we hope that every bottle can be a lecture of life to those who consume it.

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha tea is a natural probiotic drink made possible by the fermentation of tea, sugar, and kombucha Scoby (composed of yeast, acetic acid bacteria, and lactic acid bacteria). It has a unique sweet and sour taste. During fermentation, the yeast and probiotics in the tea will decompose sugar, and produce carbon dioxide bubbles, vitamins, and minerals needed by the body.

 

What are the benefits?

Lectcha Kombucha contains a variety of organic acids, acetic acid, and digestive enzymes. They help the body adjust the intestinal flora ecology, increasing the growth of probiotics in the intestines to compete with harmful bacteria and thus, reduce the growth of harmful bacteria. It also produces antibacterial substances, and promotes digestion, helps defecation. Polyphenols in the tea can also inhibit the accumulation of free radicals in the body and delay aging.

 

How to store Lectcha?

Lectcha tastes best chilled. It can be stored at room temperature (20-25°C) for 2 days and up to 3 months when refrigerated (4-10°C). Please finish consumption on the same day if drank straight from the bottle.

Please note that Lectcha is raw kombucha and thus the live yeast and probiotics will continue to ferment in the bottle. The taste might change over time (usually becomes more vinegary and tangy). It remains safe to consume. [ However, we recommend using it as a low-cal salad dressing instead ]

 

How to drink Lectcha?

We recommend 1 bottle (250ml) a day. The tea contains small amounts of sugar, therefore people with special conditions, e.g. pregnant, breastfeeding, alcohol allergies, diabetes etc. are advised to consult a family doctor before drinking. 

 

Something's in the bottle?

The brown/clear strands in the bottle are fiber cellulose produced by the continuous fermentation of the living yeast and probiotics in the raw Kombucha. They are safe to consume.

 

 

Alcohol & Caffeine?

Fermented food such as kimchi, natt,o, etc. during the natural fermentation process, will produce a small amount of recurring alcohol which is below 0.5%. Individuals such as children, pregnant women, and people with alcohol allergies may consult a doctor before consumption. Tea contains caffeine, but after fermentation, part of the caffeine is decomposed and used by the probiotics. The amount of caffeine left in a cup after fermentation is only about 1/3 of the original tea.
