It’s true: making Kombucha yourself at home is so easy and inexpensive, and definitely tastes better than the stuff in the store (which costs close to $4 a bottle). Hangover cure? Maybe. Cancer or HIV cure? Well, probably not, but it is assuredly a healthy tonic, rich in enzymes, probiotics and other nutrients. And yup, “a healthy, fizzy drink to replace sugary soda and juice.”
