3 out of 7 people would recommend this product12/12/2019, By LaurenFollowed all instructions EXACTLY (ie. Scoby kept in cool, dark place until the weather got warm enough to make Kombucha; used spring water; used plain black tea and made sure that no liquid was too hot for the Scoby), but this Scoby failed to even start!! I checked it regularly and made sure it had the conditions that it needed, but it remained the same size and did not make any Kombucha. Spent R250 on a dead Scoby. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!25/04/2019, By AnsieI made a started batch as instructed by the leaflet (Then afterwards I saw on the internet that vinegar must not be used, but rather kombucha tea). After about 4months and leaving a batch for 1.5 weeks, mold started to grow on the tea. When I troubleshooted I saw that when using a dehydrated scoby the living things that protect from mold are too weak from dehydration to protect the Kombucha. So this is a common occurrence with dehydrated and refrigerated kombucha scobies. So I'm very disappointed to say the least.30/12/2018, By bridgetBought as a gift for the husband who is crazy about kombucha - now he's decided he cant drink green tea - thats the next challenge - to find out how to make kombucha without green tea!30/08/2018, By ColleenMy scoby is still dehydrating. Have been checking it and it looks good so hopefully will be able to make Kombucha shortly.05/08/2018, By ChrisAfter weeks the scoby is still dehydrated. Instructions were followed to the tee.
Maybe it is a summer product requiring warmer weather. Just not working for me.
10/07/2018, By AngelaMy friend and I both purchased this kit. We followed instructions to the letter, and weeks later, we both still had a dehydrated scoby. When we contacted the supplier, we were told to leave it in a bit longer, which we did. If that did not work, we had to place them in a new batch of tea, which we did . Unfortunately, none of ours rehydrated and we both threw out our batches. We wasted our money :(25/06/2018, By KeikomiKombucha is something I have wanted to try out for ages, but it looked so difficult. It turns out it is actually extremely simple. I have loved cultivating my own juice. Amazing.
