Super Teas Part 3: Kombucha

Some say kombucha originated in Russia, others in ancient Manurchia. Wherever it’s from, its contents are yeast, bacteria, and enzymes. While bottled Kombucha tea is available, it can cost upwards of five dollars a bottle. The cost is why many people choose to brew their own. If you choose to do this you will need your own starter culture, various bottles, and cloths.

Kombucha tea is made by combining the culture with green, black, or oolong tea with sugar. The culture sits on top of the tea for a approximately a week and the yeast cultures consume the sugar to make more organic goodness.
