Recently I heard about Kombucha tea for the first time. I am not yet sure where I can get it in Richmond, but hopefully I will be able to. Apparently the tea can make you feel euphoric, relaxed, and generally well. The euphoria might be from its small amounts of alcohol or caffeine, causing blood to rush to the brain. But it’s really interesting because the tea contains a culture combined of yeast and bacteria. It has been made since Qin Dynasty and used to be called the “Immortal Health Elixir”. Anywho, it claims to have all sorts of health benefits…yet none are proven. But I’ll give it a shot!
