Organic Kombucha SCOBY Culture

Kombucha is a fermented sweetened tea loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, probiotics and minerals to improve our health and wellbeing.

Our kombucha SCOBYs are grown and nurtured under license so that when they leave us they are resilient and ready for their new home. 

Kombucha SCOBYs can go by various names including:

  • Kombucha culture
  • Mother culture
  • Pellicle
  • Kombucha mushroom

What is a SCOBY?

A SCOBY is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts used to ferment sweetened tea into probiotic kombucha. The SCOBY is a cellulose mat made up of bacteria and yeasts which are imperative to the fermentation of kombucha. Read our blog to find out more about what is a Kombucha SCOBY and the benefits.

How do I make kombucha with a SCOBY?

One needs to have a SCOBY in order to ferment your kombucha. You simply dissolve sugar into tea, cool it to room temperature, and add your SCOBY. Wait a few days and you will now have kombucha that you can flavour according to your desired taste.

New scoby.

This is the 2nd scoby purchased from you. The 1st maybe a couple of years ago. My scoby eventually got sick and I discarded it hence the recent purchase. I have been very pleased with the performance of the 1st and 2nd purchases and now again I have yummy kombucha.

Happy customer

I have received the scoby very soon after I ordered. And the Kombucha is in the making. It was a nice size scoby, with some starter liquid and also received the Instructions to get me going. Thank you!

No probs

Did what it should. Settled in to its new home and started making kombucha.


This is the third time i have purchased something from symbiota, a trustworthy company. The scoby was well packaged and easy to follow instructions. Over a week later and I am brewing my third batch. The weather has been warm so I think that helped speed things up. I done a second ferment and added molasses it is so yum, I can't keep up with household demand. I keep the bottles on my bench top and they stay visible so I don't forget to burp them because a lot of gas builds up. Great product great service and have referred a couple of my mates to Symbiota.

I followed the instructions carefully, but the tea failed to ferment. Do have a solution? I have disposed of the scobie as it had not done the job.

Hi Valerie
We very rarely have any issues with our cultures, providing the correct raios are followed; as our cultures are nurtured and resilent.
We however replaced your scobies once you had made contact.
We encourage customers to always reach out for support or troubleshooting.
