Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly bubbling, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly consumed for its supposed health benefits. Sometimes the beverage is called kombucha tea to distinguish it from the culture of bacteria and yeast. You can add in juice, spices, fruit or other flavourings to enhance the taste of the beverage.
After you blend the tea with sugar, it becomes kombucha with the help of bacteria and yeast. These live bacteria are important because they play an essential role in the fermentation process. This process is what gives kombucha its slight fizzing and tart-and-tangy taste. Some find the fruity, vinegary flavour of kombucha to be a unique taste. Therefore, if you’re sipping it for the first time be sure to sample a few different varieties.
Tea with ‘Good Bacteria’
Kombucha offers some great potential benefits. Thanks to the fermentation process, the tea is packed with probiotics. These microorganisms are the “good” type of bacteria similar to what occurs naturally in our intestines. Probiotics are great for overall gut-health, de-bloating, lowering cholesterol, and help to promote a healthy immune system. Kombucha also contains B vitamins. These B vitamins promote energy, metabolism, and generating of cells which may be beneficial for hair, skin, and nails. It is certainly a better beverage option than soda, juice, and other sugary drinks.
