Kombucha Tea Fungus (self renewing)
(NOT AVAILABLE OUTSIDE U.S.A.)
This tough, slippery culture pad, is not a fungus at all, but rather a Symbiotic Community of Bacteria and Yeasts, a mixture of one specific bacterium and one or more yeasts. The beverage, Kombucha (a.k.a. teeschwamm, wunderpilz, hongo, cajnif, & other names) has a clean, slightly acid taste comparable to a light non-alcohol wine or apple cider.
To culture this tea, brew black tea, sweetened with white sugar. When it has cooled, combine the black tea, the Tea Fungus Pad and some Kombucha beverage in a clean glass jar and allow it to culture for 10-12 days at 75-85 F.
The directions spell out this traditional culture method and show how One culture can be maintained for a lifetime!
