Kombucha describes a variety of fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drinks that are commonly consumed for their  health benefits. Kombucha is produced by naturally fermenting tea using a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY).

A probiotic beverage that aids digestion and gut health, kombucha provides numerous benefits, from fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth to improving mental clarity and mood stability.

Kombucha is quite easy to brew at home. You can get a starter kit at most health food stores or from The Kombucha Shop.
