Are there any actual health benefits to drinking kombucha?

I have been brewing and drinking my own kombucha for years. I like the taste, I like the bubbles, and it's a fun and relatively low-maintenance hobby in the realm of brewing things (way less involved than beer, for instance).

There was this one tree near the main parking lot that, for some reason, we all used to pull leaves off of and chew on them. They had a really pleasant sour taste. Anyone know what kind of tree it might have been? [more inside]

What's going on in my mouth?

Calling all cooking chemists: It's said that the tartness of food indicates it's acidity. And sugar can be used to reduce that tartness. But a sugar solution is pH 7, so it's not neutralizing the acid. What gives?
