What is Kombucha?
In short, Kombucha is a form of fermented tea. It is made out of tea, water, sugar, natural flavors (such as fruit), and the mother, aka SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast). The latter contains all of the probiotics, amino acids and enzymes that make up Kombucha’s health aid reputation.
Kombucha has been around for thousands of years, and Kombucha Kamp is there to help us understand the Chinese etymology, starting with ‘Chá’, which is the Chinese word for tea. ‘Kombu’ originated from 414 AD (Anno Domini) when Dr. Kombu brought the tea to the warriors of ancient Japan to give them energy during battles. Kombucha, however, is not to be confused with the Japanese tea made out of the seaweed, which is called Konbucha.
