What is Kombucha Tea?
Kombucha Tea is a fermented drink made from tea, first recorded in Asia more than 2,000 years ago.
In a pioneering display of international co-operation, legend has it that a Korean physician healed a Japanese emperor with this Chinese beverage, thus : “Kombu” (the physician’s name) + “cha” (tea).
During fermentation, Kombucha Tea is created by a “culture mass” called a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast, or SCOBY for short.
The Scoby is a living organism. Its digestive processes feed on the sugar, turning tea into a fermented drink.
