History: Kombucha is a simply, a fermented tea. It is created by kombucha culture which contains yeast(s) and the bacteria, Acetobacter. When the two of these come together, it forms a tangible and hard bio film. Kombucha is believed to have originated in China during the Qin Dynasty, dating back as early as 221 BC. Hence, the name of this tea originates from the word koubo (酵母), which is Chinese for “yeast mother,” and refers to the actual biofilm.
