What Is Kombucha Tea And Where Did It Come From?

The history of Kombucha tea is a little unclear but one of the stories I know of is that it originated in China sometime in 220BC. Traditionally brewed at home and passed on from generation to generation. It is known by different names in different cultures. It is a healing and nourishing drink made by fermenting some sweetened tea (usually black or green) for 7 to 14 days. The fermentation process creates carbonation making the tea slightly fizzy and tangy with a very small alcohol content. A second fermentation will make the tea really fizzy just like soda and you can flavour it with fresh or dried fruit, herbs & spices (check out some recipes here).

Benefits of Kombucha Tea:

  • Full of probiotics (gut friendly bacteria)
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Improve digestion
  • Rich in B Vitamins
  • Assists with balancing blood sugar levels
  • Assists with joint lubrication & rebuilding of connective tissue
  • Help fight yeast & parasite infections
  • Improve skin conditions
  • Increase metabolism
  • Helps with constipation
  • Cancer prevention
  • Reduces kidney stones
  • Assists with headaches & migraines
  • Boosts energy
  • Detoxifies the liver and much more
I personally believe Kombucha tea can assist the body in healing itself by strengthening and restoring the gut, so benefits and results may vary from person to person depending on what each individuals needs are. We had our own personal experience with Kombucha in healing our then 5 yo son. You can read more about our story here and here.

How is Kombucha Tea made?

Kombucha tea is made by brewing black or green tea with sugar then adding some Kombucha Starter tea (already fermented tea) and a SCOBY (which stands for symbiotic colony/culture of bacteria & yeast). The tea and SCOBY are then left to ferment at room temperature for at least 7 days and up to 30 days. Any where between 7-14 days will produce the most pleasant tasting Kombucha, any longer and it starts to taste too much like vinegar. If you end up with Kombucha vinegar you can use it in salads or even as a hair rinse.
