Home US Kombucha

Kombucha (also tea mushroom, Manchurian mushroom, formal name: “Medusomyces gisevii”) is a variety of fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drinks commonly intended as functional beverages for their supposed health benefits. Kombucha is produced by fermenting tea using a “symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast” (SCOBY). Microbial populations in SCOBY cultures vary. The yeast component generally includes “Saccharomyces” and other species, and the bacterial component almost always includes “Gluconacetobacter xylinus” to oxidize yeast-produced alcohols to acetic and other acids.
