Kombucha tea isn’t just your ordinary herbal tea with some health benefits. It is a fermented tea loaded with healthy bacteria and antioxidants that are helpful to the body’s immune system. However, the tea can’t simply be made with some boiling water and a simple tea bag because there is a process and a certain amount of time needed for the tea to ferment and become kombucha tea.
Kombucha tea is basically sweet tea with cultures in it. The tea taste exactly like sweet tea you would typically get down in the southern states. Kombucha tea is made by taking either 8 to 10 black or green tea bags or lose leaves and placing them into a pot of boiling water and boiling them for 15 to 20 minutes until you get a rich brown or green colored tea. After you can place a cup or 2 of sugar into the brew too help sweeten it up. You are also going to need to add a live active culture such as yeast into the brew along with ½ cup distilled vinegar once the brew has cooled. Then you will need a large sanitized jar with a lid to place the tea into. Then you simply allow the tea to sit and ferment for about 2 weeks to a month. After you will open up the jar of tea and pull out the thin layer of culture that has formed at the top and than you will have kombucha tea. Kombucha tea can be served as an ice tea with ice and honey.
Some of the major health benefits you can get from drinking kombucha are cancer, disease, infection, and illness prevention. It also helps cleanse and detoxify the body from harmful toxin build up in our bodies. Kombucha tea is even used in replace of coffee in the morning too help give the body a natural healthy boost of energy.
