Kombucha is a “fermented tea beverage believed to have originated in China. Kombucha has been popular in different lands at different times, but became very popular here in the United States in the 1990s. Kombucha is similar to kvass, a Russian ferment made from bread, and is sometimes called tea or kombucha kvass (Katz, 2003).” This ancient tea is packed with antioxidants, probiotics and vitamins.
