A popular beverage today is called Kombucha tea. It is a mixture, in most cases, of regular tea and liquid in which a fermenting organism is growing. You can buy it pre-made in the store, or you can make it yourself. Both are no good! The reasons to avoid kombucha tea are:
1. Aldehyde toxicity. Everyone who uses kombucha tea regularly that we have observed has some degree of aldehyde toxicity in the liver. This is very unhealthful. For more on this, read Aldehyde Toxicity on this website.
2. Very yin. Fermented foods and beverages are quite yin in macrobiotic terminology. Kombucha is no different. It is somewhat like beer, which is another fermented drink. Anything that is quite yin today is also not healthful. To read about this, read Yin Disease.
3. Stimulant. Kombucha tea has a stimulating effect on the body. Many people like this, and it keeps them using the product. However, it is not healthful. In fact, kombucha contains an amphetamine-like substance and it is definitely addictive.
PLEASE DO NOT DRINK ANY KOMBUCHA TEA.
