Earlier today I heard the word "Kombucha," pronounced "Kom-BOO-cha," and I fell in love with the Chinese Magical Health Elixir. Then I smelled the stuff. I quickly fell out of love with Kombucha. Then I said the word out loud again. KomBOOcha. And I liked it just fine. Then I heard that even though it is supposed to make you healthier, there have been studies that it gives people jaundice and makes them vomit, and I didn't like it so much again.
It looks like I have an on-again, off-again relationship with an ancient Chinese tea.
