The U.S. government would love nothing more to have their nose in everything we purchase, eat, drink, or even lay our eyes on, and in some ways they already do. Seeing a natural tea-drink come under regulation should be no shock to any of us. But many people don’t quite understand what kombucha tea is or why the government is watching it, especially while the benefits of kombucha tea are overwhelming.
Kombucha is a fermented sweet tea. It can use regular black tea but with the addition of bacterial and yeast cultures. Many people brew their own at home and it is said to be an easy process. Some types of kombucha can also be purchased in health food stores, though a few brands were taken off shelves a few years ago.
