Fizzicle founder Melissa Mak is well-known on the local kombucha brewing scene for being one of the first few prolific brewers who kickstarted the fermentation frenzy in Singapore. She is also the creator of SG Fermentation Friends, which was started in 2015 as an interest group for budding home-fermenters of kombucha and kefir.
Fast forward four years, and Mak now spends most of her time working on Fizzicle, her own kombucha brand that specializes in brewing and bottling junboocha. Junboocha is essentially the sister beverage of kombucha, the difference being that junboocha is made with raw honey instead of refined sugar.
Fizzicle offers a range of seven flavours, including ginger and pink guava. One of their best-selling products is the aptly named Number 1 ($7.50), a fruity-tasting green and black tea blended with over 10 ingredients.
Most kombucha retain some caffeine from the tea base it is made with, but Fizzicle has created a non-caffeinated version for those looking for a good night's rest. Named Calmboocha ($8), the blend is made with green rooibos, lavender, rose, cinnamon and blueberries.
Their physical store is only open to those who make appointments at the moment, but will soon be open for walk-ins every Thursday afternoon.
Fizzicle's products are available for purchase on their website.
