Kombucha: the new power drink?

(article, Culinate staff)

The traditional fermented-tea beverage known as kombucha has gone mainstream in the past few years, turning up next to energy drinks in grocery-store aisles. It's tasty, fizzy, and with its probiotic components, considered a health drink by many. But it's also controversial, especially since Whole Foods recently pulled kombucha from its shelves when some brands turned out to be as boozy as beer. Can't wait for the bottled version to return to store shelves? Make your own — just make sure it doesn't go moldy.
