Lindsay's Favorite Tea -- Possible SCRAM Risk

6/19/2010 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's biggest sobriety aid -- a kind of tea called Kombucha that usually contains harmless traces of alcohol -- could get LiLo in serious SCRAM trouble ... because it might be more alcoholic than she thought.

According to the label, the tea contains less than 0.5% alcohol -- a negligible amount -- but Whole Foods recently yanked all the teas from their shelves over concerns the label isn't so accurate.

The guy behind Kombucha, GT Dave, admitted there are concerns over alcohol levels in the drink -- but tells TMZ, "Although we are not familiar with the technology or sensitivity of SCRAM bracelets, we think it would be highly unlikely that our products would trigger an alarm."

Bottom line, Lindsay would probably have to drink a ton of this stuff to set off her SCRAM-shackle -- but that's not to say she couldn't do it.

Most popular sodas have trace amounts of alcohol in them as a by product. Sounds like around the same percentage. The Daily Show did a thing on it one time. Something like you'd have to drink like ten 2 liters to equal the alcohol content of one beer.

Omg! That's crazy...I got hooked on that stuff for a while (it's pretty good in a weird way!) and a couple times noticed I was a little buzzed when I drank it w/o having a meal for a while...They totally messed w the labels! Ha!

I'm not surprised she found this drink and it's her drink of choice. She's into stimulants. It fits the pattern. I hope they really grind her to stick to her probation. I am so weary of this woman. She and her awful mother really are depressing.

I've been drinking that tea off and on for a long time. It is very good and I am EXTREMELY sensitive to alcohol (drunk off half a glass of wine people) and this drink does not affect me in any way. It is a good healthy drink but she really shouldn't be having more than a bottle of that stuff per day.

I have been impressed with Lindsay recently. Working out at the gym, losing the black dye job. Staying out of trouble. Looking a bit hot again. Maybe this whole thing will finally make her grow up and go back to being an actress instead of a pr0n star. And yes I know her next role is as a porn star.

Anyone else on probation for an alcohol related offense is not allowed to consume -any- alcoholic beverages no matter the content percentage.



Again this girl gets special attention.



The court tells her "No Booze what so ever" yet here she is drinking a beverage with a label that clearly stats it has alcohol content.



I just do not understand.
