Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with the komb ucha culture.

The result can taste like something between sparkling apple cider and champagne, depending on what kind of tea you use. The first recorded use of kombucha comes from China in 221 BC during the Tsin Dynasty. It was known as "T he Tea of Immortality". It has been used in Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan fo r several centuries. It's from Japan in 415 AD that the name kombucha is said to have come. A Korean physician called Kombu or Kambu treated the Emperor Inyko w ith the tea and it took his name, "Kombu" and "cha" meaning tea. Russia has a lo ng tradition of using a healing drink called "Tea Kvass" made from a "Japanese M ushroom". From Russia it spread to Prussia, Poland, Germany and Denmark but it seems to have died out during World War Two. After the war Dr Rudolph Skelnar cr eated renewed interest in kombucha in Germany when he used it in his practice to treat cancer patients, metabolic disorders, high blood pressure and diabetes. Kombucha Wonder Drink is a Sparkling Himalayan Tonic with inspired natural flavo rs infused with tea, creating an entirely new beverage category. This unique, re freshing, somewhat mysterious even magical beverage has its own compelling mytho logy. For centuries, the wise ones descended each year from their aeries high in the Himalayas to harvest spring tea that grew in the valley below. The tea went back up, high in the mountains where it was blended according to an ancient for mula, creating kombucha a delicious, effervescent wonder drink that has for thousa nds of years conferred its wonderful benefits on all who drink it: good health, great longevity, inner serenity and incisive mental clarity.
