Kombucha has become extremely popular a few years back as there are many health benefits in it and it is a naturally fizzy drink with sweetly fermented flavor. It has been around long before the hipsters found it and it became part of the today’s heath trend of functional beverages. Study of Wiley University tells that it originally comes from China where it was used for its health benefits as early as 220 BC. In 414 AD it was bought to Japan by physician Kombu to help Emperor Inkyo with digestive problems. This where the name Kombucha is also derived. Traveling on trade routes Kombucha found its way to Russia and into Eastern Europe where it has been used ever since.
