i'd also like to say that kombucha has surpassed coconut water on my scale of preference for healthy revitalizing drinks. cocnut water is great for potassium but kombucha has probiotics and shit in it and is good for the following purposes*which havent been approved by the food and drug administration probably because they can't make money off it like they can by prescribing pharmaceuticals or some other form of western medicine:

Kombucha (pronounced kom-BOO-cha) is a handmade Chinese tea that is delicately cultured for 30 days. During this time, essential nutrients form like: Active Enzymes, viable probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants, and polyphenols. All of these combine to create an elixir that immediately works with the body to restore balance and vitality.
it's usually four dollars at the bodegas or health food stores in brooklyn but at wholefoods it $3.39. am i out of mind? ohhhhhnoooo its so delicious.
ps- my favorite is the trilogy / not the new flavors, the new flavors lack in spiciness although bilberry is included which noe just recently told me is native to italy, but she was wrong. sorry noe. read about bilberries here.
