Kombucha, The Super Healthy Tea You've Never Heard Of

We can’t promise you’ll enjoy the taste of kombucha— it’s fermented tea, after all—but you’ll appreciate its ample health benefits. 

Why is a beverage that has notes of vinegar and beer-soaked cigarettes flying off shelves at six dollars a bottle at health-food markets? Perhaps it’s because kombucha (pronounced kom-BOO-cha), a microbe-based carbonated tea, is a healthy powerhouse that’s low in sugar, caffeine-free, and packed with probiotics.

Kombucha is made only from four ingredients: water, sugar, tea, and SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and is fermented for seven to 30 days. Since it’s fermented, there are small traces of alcohol. Give yourself a two-week adjustment period to let the taste—made well, kombucha has a slight effervescence and actually combines sweetness and tartness—grow on you. The mental clarity, energy, and health benefits, though, will have you ditching those nutrient void sugar bombs.
