Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast or Scoby is a jelly-like mass of cellulose that aids the fermentation process. This dish like fibre, breaks down all the sugar and creates the most gut friendly “kombucha”. 


With no preservatives or excess sugar, we offer a live culture with some starter tea so that you can prepare your own batch of soury goodness.


Our starter tea is brewed with healthy amounts of cane sugar, black tea and purified water from the Himalayas.



Net Quantity: 500ml


Ingredients: Scoby, Purified water, Black tea, Cane sugar.


How to Brew


  • To make your own batch of kombucha, you first need to make a tea base. For this, Bring 2 litres of water to a boil with 45 gms of sugar and 15 gms of tea.


  • Let the blend cool down to room temperature and then remove the tea. Now add our starter tea to the mix so that some unfriendly bacteria won’t affect your kombucha in the first few days of fermentation. 


  • Now pour the mixture into a sterilised glass jar and slip your scoby in it with clean hands and cover its mouth with a lid.


  • Keep the jar out of direct sunlight and let it ferment for 7 to 10 days. Also, do keep a check on the kombucha and scoby periodically. 


  • After 7 days, start tasting your kombucha by pouring out a little and check for a balance of sweetness and tartness.

 

  • When you find the taste pleasant, take out some starter tea and scoby for your next batch of kombucha with clean hands. Now bottle the finished kombucha and refrigerate it for later use.


  • For a detailed guide, you can just take a look at the easy-to-follow instructions on our youtube channel.


FAQs


Is a scoby alive?

Scoby is actually a cellular mat that houses live bacteria and active yeast which results in the fermentation of Kombucha. 

How many times can you use a scoby?

With proper care, a kombucha culture can be re-used multiple times but if at some point your scoby shows signs of mould or lack of fizz in your kombucha, it’s time to compost it!


What kills a scoby?

The ideal temperature for a scoby to thrive in a kombucha lies between 16 to 29°C(60-85°F). A temperature greater than that can eventually kill a scoby. 


Is eating scoby good for you?

While scoby is a slimy looking kombucha starter, it is perfectly edible. Apart from being a good source of fibre, it improves digestion and helps in normalising your cholesterol levels.
