Mushroom is just a popular name for Kombucha culture. Kombucha mushroom can not live on solids and be poisonous like some of the real mushrooms.

Kombucha has a unique characteristic – it doesn’t like to be bothered during fermentation. If you move the jar, the new mushroom sinks to the bottom as if hiding from you and letting you know that it needs to be left alone.

Some people do not use honey to make Kombucha because they think it is harmful for the culture, while the others love making their Kombucha with honey saying that it helps producing more nutritious and better tasting drink!

Kombucha tea helped Russian writer and Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn survive the Siberian political camps in former Soviet Union where he was diagnosed with cancer.

Kombucha is one of the most popular health and refresh drinks in the world!

Kombucha has many different names in other parts of the world. In Russia it is called Kvass or Manchurian Tea, in Japan Kocha kinoko, in China Manchu Fungus, in Italy Funko and the scientists call it Medusomyces gisevi.

Kombucha is a living thing that when treated with love can make your life wonderful!
