What is Kombucha?
As the word “cha” suggests, Kombucha is a type of tea—fermented tea. It is fermented using “symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast”, commonly known as SCOBY. While it is a trendy beverage in many countries such as UK, USA and Australia, the origin of Kombucha dates more than 2000 years back. Unlike what you would expect from a beverage made from tea, Kombucha is fizzy and has a slight vinegar taste.
