Organic Egyptian Kombucha Scoby
The organic Egyptian Kombucha Scoby produces a fizzy, tart fruity fermented drink. The tartness can be controlled by the amount of time the drink is left to ferment. It contains a range of bacteria and yeasts. Egyptian Kombucha is a great tasting fermented drink that is quickly gaining popularity across the world.
Egyptian Kombucha is a fermented drink which replaces standard tea with herbal tea made from the flowers of the hibiscus plant. This variety differs because over time it has stabilised and become accustomed to brewing Kombucha with hibiscus flowers. It brews a colourful, fruity and slightly acidic Kombucha with the added health benefits that come from drinking a tea made from hibiscus flowers.
What is Hibiscus tea?
Hibiscus tea is a herbal tea made as an infusion from crimson or deep magenta-coloured calyces (sepals) of the Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) flower. It is consumed both hot and cold. It has a tart, cranberry-like flavour. The tea contains vitamin C and minerals and is used traditionally as a mild medicine.
Size variations explained:
Starter tea is the most important part of the process of making Kombucha. You always need a minimum of 10% starter tea for the total volume of Kombucha being made. We offer a range of brewing sizes which all come with the required amount of starter tea to successfully and safely make Kombucha at home. We also offer misfit organic Kombucha scoby. These are Scoby’s that have not quite formed perfectly. The shape of the Scoby has no impact on the Kombucha brewed with it. We offer these Scoby’s at a discounted price rather than let them go to waste.
