Kombucha is nature’s perfect energy drink and is created by fermenting tea with a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or “scoby,” as it’s known among kombucha brewers. Drinkers of the tea report health benefits including a natural source of B-vitamins and minerals, probiotics for digestive health, and boosts to one’s immune system.
