What is Kombucha?

The Kombucha starter culture is a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY), held together by polysaccharides. Its appearance is similar to a mushroom cap, which is why the culture is also referred to as a mushroom, though it is not a fungus. Kombucha is known to contain a variety of yeast and bacteria.

What is SCOBY?

SCOBY is a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast. A kombucha scoby is also known as a mother or mushroom, due to its appearance.

Dehydrated Scoby need to activated in sugar tea. dehydrated Scoby is easy to storage and shipping everywhere, long shelf life  

Live Scoby packed with kombucha, Open and brewing.


Kombucha is tangy, slightly sweet, and can be effervescent. The flavor varies greatly depending on the culturing time and tea used. The culturing time determines whether the kombucha tea has a very mild taste or a very strong vinegar-like taste.

Live scoby come with kombucha (starter) , easy add to the tea you prepared.

Dehydrate scoby need to activate with 1 cup  kombucha(every previous batch)  can buy from supermarket ark your friend, this is fast way to activate the dehydrate scoby. If still can't find a cup of previous batch kombucha add 2 tea spoon vinegar .

  1. Scoby in sweet tea (black/green tea)
  2. well cover with cotton cloth and put it in a corner. Don't move during the fermenting days. 
  3. 1-2 days after, you will see the baby scoby is foaming. keep fermenting...
  4. 4-5 days the scoby is thicker and see how healthy grown in a kombucha tea.

my kombucha fermenting in 7 days and bottled. You can flavor with ginger, orange juice, turmeric.... and fruit juice create more fizz

Now the weather of temperature (25-29C) in Hong Kong is good for fermenting kombucha, Summer time may need to keep it in living room....

i am drinking Jun , Water kefir, Kombucha instead all carbohydrate drinks for a long time.

Although kefir and kombucha both contain healthful microbes, kefir is a richer source of lactic acid bacteria (LAB). So you could think of kefir as a drinkable probiotic supplement, and kombucha as more of a digestive aid. Another big difference is that kombucha typically has caffeine, since it's made from tea
