Grow your own probiotics: kombucha tea

'Another fermented beverage with many health benefits is a fermented tea called Kombucha. Kombucha is a living beverage made from tea, sugar and the culture colony known as SCOBY. SCOBY stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts. Kefir grains are actually SCOBYs too although not referred to as such.

Unlike kefir, Kombucha is primarily an acetic acid, rather than a lactic acid ferment, although it often contains some lactic acid.'
