Kombucha Kvass - Locally Made
Kombucha Kvass is a refreshing
home-crafted beverage made with age old techniques. It is brewed using
pure dual-filtered waters, organic green teas, organic cane sugar plus
simple fermentation from a parent kombucha culture of symbiotic
bacteria and yeasts.
The origins of Kombucha have become lost in the mists of time. It is
thought o have originated in the Far East, probably China, and has been
consumed there for at least two thousand years. The first recorded use
of kombucha comes from China in 221 BC during the Tsin Dynasty. It was
known as the "Tea of Immortality." It has also been used in Eastern
Europe, Russia, and Japan for several centuries.
Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with
the kombucha culture. The result can taste like something between
sparkling apple cider and champagne, depending on what kind of teas you
The Kombucha culture is places in sweetened black or green tea and
turns a bowl full of sweet teas into a bowl full of vitamins, minerals,
enzymes and health-giving organic acids. As the Kombucha culture
digests the sugar it produces a range of organic acids, vitamins
(particularly vitamins B & C), amino acids, and enzymes. Also,
there are the benefits of the probiotic microorganisms themselves. The
Kombucha culture is a biochemical powerhouse in your kitchen.
Many health claims are made for kombucha but there is less research on
its benefits than on fermented milk products. In lab tests, it has been
shown to have antibiotic, antiviral, and antifungal properties. When
given to rats, it was shown to improve liver function. Testimonials
have shown further benefits, including: raising energy levels,
metabolic disorders, allergies, cancer, digestive problems,
candidiasis, hypertension, HIV, chronic fatigue and arthritis.
