On Friday morning, I visited a new coffee shop in Danbury called Barrister’s. I’m not a coffee person but I’m definitely a tea lover. Any new coffee shop would have a menu offering unique teas so I decided to stop in. I’m so glad that I did because Barrister’s Coffee Shop is a new gem in Downtown Danbury. Their decor gave me the feel of San Francisco meets New York. They offered a varied menu that anyone would find something tasty to eat and drink. My second order Kyle made me a tasty drink to my liking and I’m picky.
I was able to snuggle in their comfy leather chairs while enjoying my hot tea and working on beauty articles. The energy and the welcoming staff has made Barrister’s my favorite place to work from this year. The shop also has an area to work on your personal computer.
While sipping on tea, Caitlynn came by to offer samples of Kombucha tea. They offer Jasmine Green Tea and Black & White flavor. She explained to me that they offer Cross Culture Kombucha which is from Danbury’s first Kombucha brewery.
The JASMINE GREEN TEA flavor was very refreshing with a soft floral taste. The BLACK & WHITE flavor was very clean tasting.
What is Kombucha? Kombucha is a delicious bubbly fermented tea that has existed for many hundreds of years. It is raw, non-alcoholic and made by fermenting sweet tea with a live kombucha culture. The culture of bacteria and yeast (known as a SCOBY) that is critical in brewing kombucha, is what transforms sweet tea into a beverage with completely different properties, and not just in taste. After fermenting, the beverage contains loads of healthy organic acids, beneficial bacteria, vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes. These works together in an adaptogenic tonic that supports nutrition absorption, digestion, liver function and detoxification, joint health, immunity, pH balance, and overall well-being.
So how does Kombucha tie in with beauty you ask, drinking kombucha can help your skin look fresh, healthy, and younger-looking. Dieting is a daily commitment to gut health and detoxification, and those are two areas that have the effect of making you feel younger as well as look your best says Ian Ceppos Head Brewer of Cross Culture Kombucha. It helps to detoxify, hydrate, and improve skin elasticity. Kombucha can improve the tone and clarity of your skin, and even help in the fight against wrinkles. Drinking 2-3 teas a day will definitely do a body good.
I’m so happy that I stopped by Barristers Coffee Shop this morning. Any help to keep me to looking effortlessly youthful and glamxurious while helping my body with my health issue; Lupus, Lyme and RA is a plus. So let’s all drink up and get healthy!
