"I used to be a gourmet soda junkie. Thanks to Sacha Laurin of KobuchaCouture.com who turned me on to great tasting Kombucha.
I'm a changed man."-Steve Shapson
Kombucha is fast becoming a very popular beverage that not only tastes great, but can be beneficial to your health. Kombucha contains lot of Vitamin B and healthy bacteria and yeasts. I've had the commercial Kombucha of which there are many. Most just didn't wet my whistle. They had an odd aftertaste and were too acidic for my taste(you can adjust the acidity and flavor to your liking). After consuming some friend's(thanks Sacha) wonderful Kombucha I was hooked. Kombucha is very easy to make. You can carbonate it naturally or artificially(I run two on tap at home). Add non-sweetened fruit juice after to give it the flavor you want. Or use herbal teas from Rishi to add great flavor. Kombucha is gluten & dairy free.-Steve Shapson (former gourmet soda consumer, now Kombucha lover).

I'm extremely pleased with the SCOBY I received. It arrived promptly, in excellent condition, and came with helpful instructions. I've so far made several delicious batches of kombucha using Darjeeling tea. Much better than commercially prepared versions.
Another quality product from the Cheesemaker!

This is my 3rd SCOBY I've purchased and my kombucha is underway with baby forming. I took the kombucha making class from Steve and learned how to make this healthy drink and now I make it regularly with great success. I highly recommend buying your SCOBY from the Cheesemaker.
