Kombucha or tea mushroom is the same name of the drink, which resulted from the symbiosis of yeast fungus with bacteria native to China. The exact composition of the tea mushroom is unknown, as it may be different. The drink was called tea mushroom in the Soviet Union, and could have been found almost in every home. Today it enjoys a new wave of popularity, which came from the West, rather than from the land of its origin. Unfortunately, what can be seen on store shelves is often just a way to sell a not-quite-useful drink, taking advantage of people’s weakness for trends.
