So what exactly is kombucha? It’s basically the fermentation of sweetened tea with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, also known as a SCOBY. Known as the “tea of life”, this fermented tea is transformed into a nutrient-rich drink charged with enzymes, minerals, vitamins, polyphenols and amino and organic acids. Some of these include acetic acid, glucuronic acid, gluconic acid, fructose, usnic acid, oxalic acid, lactic acid, Vitamin C, B1,B2, B3, B6, B9 and B12.
