Living Kombucha SCOBY
Kombucha is a fermented beverage made by fermenting sweetened tea with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY).
The SCOBY, also known as the "mother culture," is a slimy, rubbery disc that floats on the surface of the tea and is responsible for converting the sweetened tea into kombucha through a process of anaerobic fermentation.
The fermentation process typically takes about a week, during which time the SCOBY consumes the sugar in the tea and produces various acids, enzymes, and beneficial bacteria. The resulting beverage is slightly effervescent and tangy in taste, with a slight sweetness.
Kombucha has been consumed for centuries and is believed to have originated in China, where it was known as the "Tea of Immortality." It has become increasingly popular in recent years as a health drink, as it is rich in probiotics, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds.

Makes great KombuchaBy: John on 2 July 2023Needed a new SCOBY after not fermenting Kombucha for several months. So used this one to start a new brew on 16 June and it was good to drink from 25 June - a good tangy, relatively sweet flavour. I suspect the flavour (and fizz) will continue to improve as SCOBY settles & adjusts to my own kitchen environment. Happily recommend Green Living Australia fermentation products
