a beverage produced by fermenting sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria.“bottled kombucha is available in many natural food stores”“Kombucha most likely originated in Northeast China or Manchuria, later spreading to east Russia sometime before 1910 and spread from there to Germany and Europe. Kombucha was highly popular and seen as a health food in China in the 1950s and 1960s. Many families would grow kombucha at home.”Thanks for the (rather dull) background info, Wikipedia.
My mom introduced me to Kombucha a few years back, and I’ve been hooked ever since!
Kombucha has so many health benefits and serves as a great alternative to soda or other energy drinks.
There are many companies that distribute Kombucha, but my favorite is GT’s. They offer a wide variety of flavors, from Cosmic Cranberry to Gingerade (my favorite!) to Passionberry Bliss, to Guava Goddess. They also sell other varieties with chia.
Low sugar (no added sugars!), low calorie (60-70 per bottle), high in antioxidants and gut-busting bacteria? Count me in…
You can find GT’s at just about any specialty/organic store such as Whole Foods, Co-Ops, etc.More recently, however, stores like Target and major grocers have introduced GT’s (look in the organic aisles).
