Okay, it has 0.5 percent alcohol which is a result of the natural fermentation process, but it's not enough to have any effect whatsoever.
Kombucha (Russian: chaynyy grib (чайный гриб), Chinese: chájūn (茶菌), Korean: hongchabeoseotcha (홍차버섯차), Japanese: kōcha-kinoko (紅茶キノコ)), is a lightly effervescent fermented drink of sweetened black and/or green tea --Wikipedia
It has a light fizz, it's full of good stuff (probiotics + aminos + organic acids + electrolytes), and it's super-low in calories (20 calories in a 15.2 ounce bottle of Kevita).
It does contain low levels of caffeine which is a natural component of the black or green tea. But, the amount of caffeine in a glass of kombucha is 1/2 to 1/3 of the amount found in a cup of the same kind of tea from which it is made.
My favorite flavor is lavender-melon by Kevita. Steve likes gingerberry made by Synergy (35 calories in a 16-ounce bottle). Flavors vary depending on the brand. Our favorites are mildly fruity with a light sweetness.
