If you're familiar with kombucha, you're probably also familiar with that leathery, pancake-like blob called a SCOBY. The acronym stands for symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. Due to its appearance, it is sometimes referred to as a "mushroom," although it is not technically a mushroom. Rather, it is the mother culture required to make kombucha tea. Not all kombucha mothers contain the exact same strains of bacteria and yeasts, but they all generally do the same work.
Using our kombucha starter kit you can brew your own kombucha. When combined with sweetened tea and fermented, the resulting kombucha beverage has a tart zing that can be flavored in a variety of ways.
