After watching this video and this video, I was all "What is Kombucha?!"
Kombucha is a tea-based beverage created by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture. Huh?! Basically you take this culture that looks like a rubbery pancake called "the mother", put it in some sweet tea and it creates all of these acids and probiotics that do wonders for your health. It sounds a little freaky deaky, but it is so great. I love it and although they isn't a lot of evidence that there are health benefits from drinking this "living beverage," it certainly has tons of claims. If nothing else it is a delicious drink that has an all-natural fizz that is a great pick me up for those trying to wean themselves off carbonated beverages. It tastes to me like sparking apple cider with a little hint of vinegar. Read more here.
I'm curious if any of you have tried making your own. Are you a fan?
