    Probably about 15 years ago I hit right into it and was making my own tea (fermenting it at home). To make it you had to get some of the culture from someone who had one and then you would grow your own. This mass would grow in the water and after a month (I think) you drain off the liquid and drink it. It's a most bizarre thing to see.

    Back then there were all sorts if health benefits that was supposed to come from the tea but quite frankly I didn't notice anything or any changes.

    From memory I did it for over a year. Didn't hurt me but I don't think it helped me either.

    ***DROOOOL***

    We use it, I notice the energy we get from it (as in hubby and I) we buy 'mojo' it's made by a family near where we live! It reminds DH of a cold glass of beer, something he hasn't had since his diagnosis. It's a learnt taste, my first few were hard to finish but were having 1 a day now so get it delivered by the box, our FAV flavor is the citrus.

    Should add, it's great for ppl who can't have yoghurt due to dairy and soy intolerance, great benefits in that way too!

    I used to have one, it's pretty cool how they grow a 'baby' to pass on. It's one of those things I think you get really into, then kind of go 'meh' butI think it probably is pretty healthy to drink.
