Is fermented kombucha alcoholic?

Because kombucha is made by fermentation, all of the fizzy tea has a small amount of alcohol in it. Most commercial kombucha sold has less than . 05% ABV because the yeast and bacteria help keep the alcohol levels low. Kombucha traditionally comes out to roughly 1.5% alcohol if fermented in the normal manner.

How long does kombucha have to ferment to become alcoholic?
