Kombucha tea dates back over three thousand years. It is made by adding Sugar

(in 7 to 14 days) and produces a drink rich in vitamins. B vitamins are essential vitamins ( our bodies don't produce them)
some kombucha vitamins and minerals:
-B1 thiamin, to metabolise carbohydrates

I know,WOW sound great (but what does this stuff taste like) Black tastes like the best ice tea you ever drank.Green tastes like a sweet white wine. The longer you leave it ferment the less sweet it is.
