What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a tea drink that's been naturally fermented over days, weeks, or even months. It has a slight vinegary taste due to all the naturally occuring organic acids. Due to the activity of the yeast, it becomes carbonated. It contains B-vitamins and enzymes, and has a high concentration of glucuronic, gluconic, acetic and lactic acids. It also contains more antioxidants than green tea!
As a byproduct of the natural fermentation, Kombucha does contain trace amounts of alcohol which generally measure anywhere between .03 – 2%. Due to Kai Kombucha balanced culture, our kombucha stays below 0.5%. This is similar to the amount of alcohol in ripe fruits. All Kai Kombucha is tested to ensure it is below 0.5%
The History of Kombucha
The history of Kombucha consumption starts with records of consumption in China, 221 B.C. It was highly esteemed for having healing properties and was even called ‘Elixir of life.’ Legends say that there was a doctor named Kombu who brought this fungus to Japan in order to heal a Japanese emperor. The first records of kombucha consumption date all the way back to China, 221 B.C when Emperor Shi Huang Di sought to extend his life by drinking kombucha which was also called 'Elixir of life'. It is believed it was introduced to the Emperor by Dr. Kombu, which is how it got its name, as 'cha' means tea in Chinese. Years later, kombucha became very popular in Japan, Germany, and Russia. In recent years, kombucha gained massive popularity in North America due to its prebiotic and probiotic benefits.
