Detox Program Using Kombucha Tea


Kombucha tea originated in Asia during the Chinese Tsin Dynasty in 212BC. This Eastern Tea was also known as the Remedy for Immortality or the tea of Immortality. It was introduced in Japan between the Wars after a Japanese visitor to Kargasok (Russia) discovered that this fermented tea drink aids in astonishing health, longevity and well-being. This fermented tea drink became somewhat popular across Europe during World War II. Today, Kombucha tea is quite well known around the world.

What is kombucha tea?

Kombucha can be created by adding the appropriate bacteria and yeast cultures to either green or black tea. It is a sweet-sour, fermented, acidic, slightly carbonated beverage, which has been illustrated as either a wine that tastes similar to a delicious tea or a healthy tea that tastes akin to a rare wine.
