What is kombucha?

Kombucha has been enjoyed by people across many cultures for thousands of years. In fact, anyone can make kombucha at home in their kitchen.

You may have seen somebody drinking, or you may have read it online but you still don’t know what it is. Kombucha is a naturally fermented beverage which is made with tea and sugar. Kombucha begins its process as a sweet tea to which you add a culture of bacteria and yeast. After a few weeks of fermenting, the sweet tea has become kombucha.

People drink kombucha for many reasons. We like to believe that the most important reason is its unique and delicious taste, which makes it drinkable all day long. However, some people drink it as part of a healthy diet and as an alternative to sugary sodas and alcohol.
