Kombucha? Ew.

Today, my boss thought that she would bring some snacks to a meeting from Whole Foods. Rugelach? Yum. Brownie Bites? Yum. Kombucha drinks? Ew. Double Ew.

From Wikipedia:
"Kombucha is the Western name for sweetened tea or tisane that has been fermented by a macroscopic solid mass of microorganisms called a "kombucha colony," usually consisting principally of Bacterium xylinum and yeast cultures."

Mmmmm....tea with cultures. It looked like Gatorade with clumps of moldy bread floating in it. It smelled like a fruity blend of Lysol and vinegar. And as if it was supposed to make it better, it was fizzy.
