It's fermented black or green tea. The culture that is used to ferment the tea looks like a mushroom. It's reputed to have many health benefits, including cancer prevention and as an adjunct to cancer treatment.

TART!!! Like apple cider vinegar ... or maybe I just made it too strong. I had to dilute mine with some wild berry zinger to get it down.

It's fermented tea - although this site does a better job of explaining than I can:

Sherry, you might want to cut back on your ferment time. It should taste more like apple cider and less like apple cider vinegar if you cut your ferment time down.
