For anyone who wants to try making their own kombucha drinks at home so they’re the freshest they can be, this Organic Kombucha SCOBY starter kit is the secret ingredient that will get the fermentation underway. And you don’t need much more… a generously sized glass jar (or two), a piece of muslin to tie around the top while the drink ferments, and a lid to seal the jar once you’re ready to store it in the fridge.

What is Kombucha tea?

A fair question to ask… Kombucha – also called booch or bootch – is a fermented, slightly tart drink that begins as sweetened tea and can be drunk as a still or slightly sparkling beverage. It can taste quite different from batch to batch depending on what variety of tea is used to start the brew and can be flavoured after fermentation by adding fresh berries, citrus fruits, herbs, spices, and even vegetables or sweeteners like honey. Because it’s fermented, Kombucha does contain alcohol, but at a very low content of approx. 0.5% ABV.


What is a SCOBY?

The name SCOBY is an acronym for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast, a combination of gut-friendly yeasts and bacteria. It’s the key ingredient that really makes the magic happen, kick-starting the fermentation process that turns sweet tea into Kombucha and providing all of the gut-friendly flora. It may not be very pretty to look at, but it’s the beauty within that counts, and it has that in abundance… the cultures will regenerate every time it’s used to brew with and little SCOBYs will break away from the ‘mother’ to provide you with a lifetime supply, if well looked after. The mini SCOBYs can be kept to replace the original or gifted to friends to help them reap the same benefits by creating their own kombucha drinks.
