Articles about tea
Kombucha is a raw, fermented tea drink that contains sugar, bacteria, and yeast. It is sometimes reffered to as “mushroom” or “mother.” Although the exact origins of kombucha aren’t totally clear, some believe that it came from the ancient Chinese, dating back to about 2000 years ago. There is evidence that Geghis Khan and his men drank this bubbly drink for vitality. It eventually traveled to Russia, where there are records documenting the culturing of tea. Kombucha did not reach Americans until the 1970s, when people began to become more health conscious and also took up the hobby of home brewing.
