For hydration, for supporting liver and kidney function, and for healthy gut flora, yes.

For flavor... Would you like salty, effervescent dirt better than mountain dew? Likely not.

Some say tea tasts like dirt and I love tea. And some say kombucha tasts like vinigar, but it tasts more like beer to me. So I would probably be the weirdo that actually likes it.

I do like it, but I'm particularly fond of salt and earthy flavors. If you like beets and salt, you'd probably like it. You can always add stuff to make the flavor more exciting, too. I have heard a lot of people add ginger.

The previous recipe I tried called for like 4x as much salt, and that was really overpowering and slowed the fermentation so much that I gave up. This one is a better balance and started fizzing for me in only a day. I let it go a couple more days before I tried it, though.
