Organic Kombucha Tea - What is it?
Organic kombucha tea
is a type of tea that's very different than most others. It's not your typical leaf that has to be infused in water in order to obtain its flavour and
interesting health benefits
. Kombucha Tea
is very different.
Kombucha Wonder Drink
Kombucha is actually made from a mixture of organic black tea (this is the preferred tea) and a live Kombucha culture
, also referred to as an organic Kombucha Mushroom
. The kombucha mushroom is a living, growing culture filled with healthy bacteria, different kinds of yeasts and other micro-organisms. Okay, now we have you thinking! It will come with some starter Kombucha tea to help you get going.

Simply put, to make organic kombucha tea you need to mix black tea and sugar together, then add the culture, and let it ferment for about a week or so. You can then pour off the tea and use a piece of the kombucha mushroom to start a new batch, or reuse the culture to make more!
Making Kombucha Tea can be very rewarding and a healthy hobby to take up. It is similar to brewing your own wine at home.
The combination is a wonderful tasting, very low alcoholic drink (less than 1%) that tastes somewhere in between apple cider and a white wine on the dry side.

Who Can Drink Organic Kombucha Tea?
Although it can be drunk by almost anyone and pose no threat to health, there are a few exceptions.
People with a bad liver - Because of it's detoxifying effect on the body, some people with bad livers may have problems because of the extra toxins it will be pulling through the liver.
Children under 6 - Although it's great for your health, it may be a little too strong for the very sensitive bodies of young children. If you're older than 6 but still a child, consider diluting the drink.
Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers - For the same reasons listed just above
Diabetics - Because of the sugar involved in the process of making this unique tea, diabetics should be careful and record how much they're using.
Recovering alcoholics - Although the alcoholic content is usually under 1%, even this little amount can trigger susceptibility to drinking for former alcoholics. If you are a recovering alcoholic, please be careful.
