Question of the day: 2-28-17

Question: What is the name for a very mildly alcoholic, slightly effervescent drink made from fermented tea?

Answer: Kombucha! You may or may not have a taste for its unusual flavor, but please don’t drink it for its purported panaceatic properties: claims that it cures cancer and reverses aging are unsupported, whereas there is evidence that large doses or tainted batches can cause organ failure. Proceed in moderation.
