What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a low-calorie, fermented tea that originated over 2000 years ago in China during the Tsin Dynasty.  Kombucha is a raw, living beverage made by fermenting tea and sugar with a kombucha culture.  Most of the sugars are digested during the fermentation process by yeast leaving by-products of carbon dioxide (the little bubbles) and alcohol.  The alcohol is then digested by the good bacteria in kombucha which converts it to beneficial organic acids.  This is what gives kombucha its characteristic tartness.  The abundance of organic acids and probiotics help cleanse, detoxify, and just make you feel great!  They also help repopulate the living flora in your digestive tract that have been depleted through the modern diet and antibiotics.  Kombucha is known for its dry, tart taste that excites the taste buds and leaves you feeling refreshed.
