I like it in liew of caffeine in the morning. I think its the shivers and shakes form my bodies reaction to drinking vinegar that helps wake me up.
unlike beer/wine, you can drink kombucha at any point in the fermentation. If you let it get to the vinegar kick in the teeth, dilute with juice. I usually let it get about half fermented, then enjoy 'on the rocks'.
