This is a great way to get some culture in ya. Kombucha Botanica
, based in Santa Cruz, adds ginger and tulsi
(the Southeast Asian herb colloquially known as "holy basil") to the tastiest of its kombucha
beverages for something alternately smooth and spicy.
The fermentation, thankfully and for once, is not the top note of this drink. Drinking a zoological mat is not usually so easy, but the S.C.O.B.Y. (the symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast
that gives kombucha its purported health properties) is still pretty slimy.
