A considerable corpus of experience has been accumulated concerning Kombucha tea. Especially in Asiatic lands and in Russia, Kombucha tea has been used for hundreds of years with good results as a natural remedy. Besides its use as a refreshing beverage, nearly every article also mentions its medicinal value. Innumerable illnesses are cited for which Kombucha tea is used and extolled. The range extends from the slightest indisposition to the gravest illness.

Much of the material on the Internet and some from other books originate from this book so, I would advise you to read the original information. Gunter is one of the leading researchers on Kombucha, so you know that you are getting top class information.
In this book he does not simply state 'this is the way it is' but rather, he explains why things happen and gives useful parameters for you to work within and to exercise your own discretion.
All in all I found this book to be very informative and a useful addition to my collection. I would recommend it to anyone who is seeking more than basic information on Kombucha.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
He seems like a wise person. The final chapter, which is entitled something along the lines of: 'Is Health Really the Most Important Thing?' is worth reading in its own right.
If you are interested in learning about kombucha tea, I'd definitely recommend this book.
Unfortunately, it was originally written in German and translated into English, and it shows a bit. Some of the phrasing is a bit peculiar.
All in all, if you are interested in making your own Kombucha, this is definitely the book to get.
