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

April 23, 2018

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.
