“Scoby” is an acronym for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. And that’s exactly what it is! A scoby is the living home for the bacteria and yeast that transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha — think of the Kombucha Scoby as the coral reef of the bacteria and yeast world. It a rubbery raft that floats on the surface of the Kombucha. Aside from being a home for yeast and good bacteria, the Kombucha Scoby seals off the fermenting Kombucha from the air and protects it from outside, undesirable bacterias while it’s fermenting.
