For those not familiar with this fermented tea, we’ll start with a brief history lesson. The story goes that this ancient tea originated in Asia around 200 BC. Known as the “Remedy for Immortality”, it quickly spread through Russia then around the world. This living drink is made by fermenting green and black tea with sugar and the Kombucha culture known as  S.C.O.B.Y. (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). The process of fermentation happens as the culture digests the sugar for 10-14 days, creating a yummy drink low in caffeine and sugar.

There’s lots of claims out there about the health benefits of kombucha. Humm Kombucha boasts that this living tea can:

  • Balance the body’s pH to help prevent illness
  • Aid digestion
  • Boost metabolism
  • Detoxify the body
  • Strengthen immune system
  • Promote vitality
  • Regulates intestinal flora
  • And some studies even show regular consumption can improve allergies, cancer, hypertension, chronic fatigue and HIV*
