Kombucha, a pancake-shaped "mushroom" that grows in sweet tea, has been used in China for more than two thousand years. Now for the first time it is widely available to Westerners seeking improved health and vitality.
But what is known about kombucha? Does its tea really offer the numerous health benefits claimed by those currently drinking it?
The Book of Kombucha cuts through the hype to answer your questions. Author Beth Ann Petro has examined in detail the latest research on kombucha and carefully investigated testimonials of kombucha drinkers from around the world.
In this book she describes what kombucha is - for instance, it's not a mushroom - and why it grows when placed in tea. Petro details how the tea is enriched by the kombucha during fermentation and relates the health benefits of this process.
If you decide to delve deeper into the experience, The Book of Kombucha provides you with information on how to obtain kombucha as well as detailed instructions on the proper way to brew your own tea.
