It's called a what?!

It’s called a scoby.

You may have heard about (and tasted) kombucha many times before, but unless you make your kombucha at home you may not know what a scoby is. The thing is, a scoby is pretty important when it comes to making kombucha - it's not called the 'kombucha mother' for nothing...

So, what in the world is a scoby?

A scoby (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) is a jelly looking disk formed after the fermentation process of making kombucha. It looks a bit like a slab of tan coloured jelly or even a pancake and develops on the contact surface where liquid meets air. 

The best thing about the scoby is that it is packed full of goodness and with the addition of kombucha liquid, can be used (and reused) to prepare your kombucha drink. Intrigued? Take a look at our short intro to scoby below...
