While Lettice drinks “lovage” to celebrate life’s special moments, Made To Order (MTO) Kombucha improves the quality of your life in a more quotidian fashion. Please join us on 10 May at the Writer’s Center at 4508 Walsh St in Bethesda, MD 20814 for a special MTO Kombucha Tasting Event. MTO Kombucha creator Ralph Crafts and his new wife, QTC actress Bobbie (Scheide) Crafts, will be on hand to tell you more about the extraordinary curative powers of Ralph’s unique product and his own touching personal history concerning its creation. A variety of samples will be available in QTC’s lobby before and after the 2pm matinee of Lettice and Lovage.
Kombucha is a sweetened black tea into which a Kombucha culture, called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) is added. Known as “the elixir of long life,” Kombucha’s origins and benefits trace back 2,000 years to ancient China. From there, it found its way across Russia, becoming widely established as an effective folk medicine in rural communities. The drink received international exposure when Soviet doctors discovered entire communities appeared to have been protected from dangerous environmental pollution by a nutritious drink. In recent years, Kombucha has become popular in the United States for helping people with a wide variety of health conditions, from digestive disorders, skin problems, high cholesterol and poorly functioning immune systems as well as people in good health with goals for improved athletic performance, better sleep and higher energy levels.
