I have been told that I must eat 'the mother' which is some slimy thing at the bottom of the bottle. The label says it cures everything though... bottoms up!
Haha! "The Mother" very nice term. I just started drinking kombucha a few weeks ago. Lov how it makes me feel :)
More information please. What the hell is this stuff?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KombuchaKombucha is a fermented tea that is often drunk for medicinal purposes. There is limited scientific information supporting any health benefit and few studies are being conducted, although there are several centuries of anecdotal accounts supporting some of the health benefits attributed to the tea. Kombucha is available commercially and can be made at home by fermenting tea using a visible, solid mass of yeast and bacteria which forms the kombucha culture which is often referred to as the "mushroom" or the "mother".
The drink is ALIVE.
