SCOBY, or known by our ancestors as tea mushroom, is short for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. Sound cute? That's the way it is!

A SCOBY is a civilization of all the good bacteria and tea mushroom yeast - it’s like a home to millions of tiny organisms that transform your tea into kombucha. It’s a rubbery raft that floats on the surface of the liquid and protects your tea from outside as it’s fermenting.

These layered mushrooms are the main ingredient of kombucha – they grow with each stage and can even be separated in layers to produce individual batches!
