Believed to have originated in Asia centuries ago, Kombucha is created through the process of fermentation using a living SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and feeding it caffeinated tea and sugar allowing it to produce a number of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and organic acids benefiting the human bodies immune system.
