However, kombucha has been a norm in Chinese culture for several centuries.  Kombucha is a tea that has been fermented with a combination of yeast and acetic acid bacteria known as “scoby”.  The scoby reacts with itself and the tea to a funky and fizzy tea that catch many people by surprise with each sip.  Some might compare the tea brew to a mixture of green or black tea and champagne. Kombucha can give you a very therapuetic feeling along with several gastrointestinal health benefits

  1. Calvin- I love Komboucha so much! Last summer I was drinking one a day. I wasn’t really drinking it for the health benefits. I knew it provided a lot of beneficial stuff but I wasn’t exactly sure what the benefits were. I was drinking it for the delicious and refreshing flavors. I love how your blog informed me on all the reasons why Kombucha is great for your health. Something I’ve always wanted to know but never took the time to look into. Thanks!

  2. Calvin, this blog post was very informative and interesting. I had no idea that Komboucha provided so many great health benefits. I have seen it around in grocery stores as it has now become more popular but have never tried one! Now that I know how beneficial is is I will have to start drinking them more often!
