What’s kombucha? It’s a refreshing, lightly sweetened, sparkling tea drink that is naturally fermented (yet non-alcoholic). The Oregon Kombucha kit comes with everything you need to make your own kombucha at home. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Boil a gallon of water, brew the tea satchel, dissolve the sugar, let it cool, then add the live kombucha culture, and wait at least a week for it to do its thing. And by “it” I mean the SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). The reusable SCOBY is the living, pancake-like mass that forms on top of the tea and gives carbonation and added flavor to the beverage.
