Fermented Tea is the correct answer! SO what’s the craze all about? Kombucha tea is an ancient Chinese drink that’s known as the “Immortal health elixir.” Well that makes you want to drink it right? The sweetened tea is created by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast.
In the beginning of the 20th century researchers in Germany and in Russian studied Kombucha extensively . This was do to the fact that they found that the colonies of people that drank this type of fragmented tea didn’t get cancer! Alas, the research was halted with the cold war and wasn’t really started back up again until the 90′s in the U.S. The research from the early 20th century has now been made public but research has been set aside because no one seems to see the benefit or rather the money in Kombucha testing.
Regardless of the unfinished research, Kombucha has over 2,000 years of belief and tradition behind it.
