Q: When did you first discover Kombucha?
I first discovered kombucha during my sophomore year in college. A friend’s family made it at home in 2-3 gallon jars and I was both repulsed and intrigued by it. After building up the confidence a few months later to try it, I was hooked by the end of my first bottle! A few months later, a friend obtained a mother and shared one of hers with me. The rest is history!
