Somerville group gets together to make yogurt

SOMERVILLE — It is Tuesday evening at the First Church Somerville near Davis Square and an acting troupe is getting all dramatic in the other room. But over a couple of cauldrons of steaming milk, Mariel Villere, 26, and Pamela Worth, 31, are bonding over kombucha tea.

Worth, a speechwriter at the University of Massachusetts Boston, is excited to learn that Villere, an MIT graduate student whom she met only an hour ago, recently started brewing the trendy fermented sweet tea drink at home, and wonders if she might get a dollop of the culture to try it herself.
