Defining Terms

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented beverage made from sweetened tea. Similar to making sourdough using a sourdough starter, kombucha is created through a process involving the use of a SCOBY.

The SCOBY contains live cultures of bacteria and yeast, which are believed to have probiotic properties that may contribute to gut health.

What is a SCOBY?

The word SCOBY is formed by the abbreviation Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. The SCOBY metabolizes the sugar in the tea, producing various beneficial organic acids, enzymes, and probiotic bacteria. This process is also known as fermentation.

The SCOBY is also referred to as the "kombucha mother".

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast that are good-for-your-gut. Probiotics help balance your gut by selectively increasing, decreasing or maintaining the level of "good" bacteria in your body, based on each individual's needs. Probiotics are found in abundance in kombucha.

Storage + Maintenance

How do I store my Kombucha?

Kombucha needs to be refrigerated. Outside of the refrigerator the kombucha will continue to ferment at a faster pace and eat the sugars.

How long does Kombucha last?

Kombucha can last in the fridge for 6-8 months unopened. After opening, it's within its optimal flavor within 2-3 weeks. The kombucha will continue to ferment and the longer it stays in the fridge, the more tart and tangy it will taste.

Pro Tip: If you try one of the bottles and see you prefer a less sweet taste, leave the unopened bottle(s) out of the fridge for 1-2 days and your kombucha will continue to eat the sugars and get fizzier.

Women + Children

Is Kombucha safe for woman who are pregnant or nursing?

Yes, but as it is a live probiotic drink, we recommend that you consult your physician first. Mazal Tov on your future bundle of joy!

Is Kombucha safe for children?

Yes. In fact, children love kombucha! It's almost like soda but at the same time, it's nothing like soda.

That being said, we recommend starting off with small servings and diluting the kombucha with water. This will help to neutralize some of the natural acidity which can affect the enamel of a small child's teeth when consumed in excess.
