Tea of Life Raw Kombucha is a refreshing, naturally carbonated, cold, fermented tea with a unique sour / fruity flavour.
Kombucha is an “ancient fermented tea beverage” which is lightly effervescent and is full of probiotics, antioxidants, B vitamins and so much more. Tea of Life Raw Kombucha is produced by fermenting organic green and black tea and natural infusions* with a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) – beneficial live cultures. It has roots in China, specifically the Qin Dynasty in 220 BCE with proven records of it travelling to Russia – eventually thriving to the health-conscious hippy communities of the 1970’s.
The SCOBY is fed – not sweetened – with sugar and after a significant amount of fermentation time, there are trace amounts of sugar left. The sugars are converted to healthy polyphenols and other beneficial acids during the fermentation process. Kombucha is safe to drink for most recovering from alcohol dependence – some say it actually helps with recovery.
As for caffeine, during the fermentation process the caffeine molecules are altered so it is not as potent as freshly brewed black tea.
To summarize; Tea of Life Raw Kombucha is a health tonic and is also referred to as an Elixir of Life!
