|It is thought that the culture originated in Tibet or China, around 221 B.C., maybe in the Tsin-Dynasty of the
Chinese empire. It was then brought to Japan where from there it was then introduced to the western world. It
may be known by many different names in other parts of the world, such as Manchurian Tea, Remedy of
Immortality, elixir of long life, cembuya, Kambotscha, Kouchakinoko, Manchu Fungus, Mo-Gu, Fungus
japonicus, tea fungus, Indo Japanese tea fungus, Olinka, Tschambucco, Volga spring, Kwassan, Pichia
fermentans, Cembuya orientalis, Combuchu, Champignon de longue vie, Tea Kvass, and Tea Kwass to name a
few. The history of the original origins of the tea has been somewhat lost, however, we do know that the tea
has been used in the cultures that are now part of China and Russia for many hundreds of years. NBC
Dateline's report on Kombucha stated that over 3 million people currently use this beverage as a health
alternative and daily tonic!
The main benefit, from drinking the tea, is helping the body in finding a natural balance. This is one reason why
it is not symptom specific – why it does not always help a specific immune-related illness, but rather seems to
go to a person’s own weakness or personal imbalance. Such a substance which has no specific harmful effect is
called an adaptogen. Its adaptogen effect is seen mostly through its influence on the liver, the blood and the
digestive system, where it normalizes the acidity or pH. Metabolic balancing and detoxification is perhaps the
most important functions of Kombucha.
