Sometimes referred to as a mushroom, but is actually a symbiotic culture of a variety of bacteria and yeasts. Produces a wonderful lightly fermented tea that is taking North America by storm. Brewed with sweetened black, green or herbal tea, the floating kombucha ‘fungus‘ produces a tasty, slightly alcoholic (0.5%), carbonated drink in days. It‘s as easy to make as yogurt, and much easier to make than beer or wine. The health-giving benefits have been known in the Orient since at least 400 A.D. In this century it has been studied in Russia and Germany where considerable anecdotal evidence has emerged suggesting that kombucha tea can treat cancer. Live cultures are shipped with complete instructions for home brewing.
Due to import restrictions, this item can be shipped to Canada and USA only.
