What is Kombucha
Kombucha is produced by fermenting sweetened tea using a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY) commonly called a "mother" or "mushroom".
The SCOBY contains a massive amount of microbial population which populates the living bacteria (probiotics) inside Kombucha and one of the reasons for the drink's popularity.
Although the SCOBY is commonly called "tea fungus" or "Mushroom", it is actually a symbiotic growth of acetic acid bacteria and osmophilic yeast species in a complex biofilm and not a Fungus which "Mushroom" suggests.
At Mutea Squid Kombucha every bottle is handcrafted in small batch's and fermented in glass vats with the finest ingredients and utmost love. Our glass fermentation vats are small enough to be carried by one person which attributes to our amazing flavour and makes our Jozi brewed Kombucha one of the most uniquely brewed Kombuchas in South Africa.
