For those not familiar with this fermented tea, we’ll start with a brief history lesson. The story goes that this ancient tea originated in Asia around 200 BC. Known as the “Remedy for Immortality”, it quickly spread through Russia then around the world. This living drink is made by fermenting green and black tea with sugar and the Kombucha culture known as S.C.O.B.Y. (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast). The process of fermentation happens as the culture digests the sugar for 10-14 days, creating a yummy drink low in caffeine and sugar.
