Anyone know if the organic raw kombucha drink is good for type O's?

I LOVE the taste of it.  Unfortunately it did not agree with me at all.  i started craving it and then I got a yeast infection that wouldn't go away.  When I stopped drinking kombucha, the yeast infection went away quickly.

Not sure on the status for O's, but I tried it and found it disgusting!! Tasted like mold to me.  :X

kombucha-'Manchurian tea mushroom' ~ not an
actual mushroom as we understand
it, but rather a colony of yeast and bacteria.
Kind of like the "tea" version
of sourdough starter. It appears to create a
kind of acidic, laxative and
possibly probiotic substance in the two weeks
it sits in the tea,

I believe the mold issue has been discussed as not being a good thing for some.

Also, it seems to create an acidic condition in the body that requires the body to leach calcium out of teeth and bones in order to balance the blood.  This can lead to tooth decay.  I have seem increased cavities in all my friends who drank it regularly for many months, even though they rinsed well after drinking.
