Zoey Shamai discovered kombucha tea while teaching yoga abroad. She founded Tonica to introduce the powers of fermented kombucha to Canadians, and thankfully, they (and we) love it. Try the green tea tonica if you’re feeling a mid-afternoon slump coming on, or the spicy ginger if you’re looking for a sub for your post-lunch espresso.
