What is Kombucha?
Kombucha has been called a health elixir, the tea of immortality and a nectar of the gods. For some people it’s a way of life, for others it’s a tasty and healthy treat. But just what is kombucha (and why is everybody talking about it?)?
Fizzy, bright and noted for its probiotics and antioxidants, kombucha is a lightly-effervescent drink made by combining sweet tea with bacteria and yeast. The result is a sometimes sweet, sometimes tangy and always delicious beverage.
While people still enjoy crafting home brewed kombucha, many stores now stock a wide and wild assortment of flavors from a variety of professional brewers.
Fermented foods and drinks such as kombucha, sauerkraut, pickles and kimchi are high in vitamins and good bacteria and help contribute to overall digestive health. Kombucha helps balance your body, and simply put, when your body is in balance, you feel better!
